I'm Embarrassed for an Entirely Different Reason

The Superintendent of Public Instruction in Arizona wants to ban The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky because it's supposed to include a hot, steamy scene. I say "supposed to" because the guy calling for the book ban has only read one page of the book. I have read the book, but it was so long ago, and I was so underwhelmed that I'm embarrassed to say I can't remember the scene in question. (Thanks to Blog of B.S. for the link.)

I'm Watching

I have two more kidlit blogs I'll be watching in the next few months--Your Fairy Bookmother and Finding Wonderland: The Writing YA Weblog. I'm not sure exactly what Finding Wonderland is. And, yes, I eliminated another blog from my list when I added these two. There are only so many hours in the day.

I like to buy lindens, because it is very interesting. I think if you meet the second life linden, you will like it too. And when you play the game well you can get some cheap linden as the rewards from the game. As long as you have a lot of linden dollars in the game you will be strong, and you can exchange the secondlife money with the other players.
