Banned Books Week

It's Banned Books Week in the States. Of course, we all know that the banned books are the coolest. Which is why I have this bracelet to prove it.

It's quite something, isn't it - that in the western world where "freedom of speech" is apparently held in such high regard, there can still be banned books.

Nice bracelet!
