A preview–also, bask in my nerdy glow!
I’ve noticed that a good number of people who find their way here through search engines do so using words and phrases that relate to banned or challenged books. (There was also one poor soul who came here searching for lizard breeders in Connecticut–boy, must he or she have been disappointed…) Lately–most likely due to the upcoming Disney movie–people have ended up here searching for information on Katherine Paterson’s Bridge to Terabithia. So, I decided I’d write up a post examining the book and the reasons it’s been challenged or banned. And to aid my research, I went to my school library to check out a book. As I did so, I thought, “Holy cow, I am such a nerd.” Still, I’d rather be thought of as a nerd than as spouting off about topics I know nothing about.
The post should be up sometime this weekend.
