Red Alert

Everyone knows red cars go faster.

And by the look of the covers on the Banned Books Week's site, it seems red books are racier...

Or maybe they are red rags to a bull?

Or perhaps there is fear they will become reds under the bed?

Whatever the case, we'd just like to take a moment to express our solidarity with all the writers around the world who've had their books banned, or burned, or restricted or censored.
And all the people - especially the kids - who've had books removed from their libraries and schools.

And all the librarians and teachers who work so hard to stand up for books and readers in their communities.

* Last week was Banned Books Week in the USA. You can find out more here or here or, you know, by using your internets searching skills.
