Good Intentions

Remember I said I had no plans for the weekend? Well, I was one busy girl but it was a great weekend. We went to the bookstore, I went to the gym, got the grocery shopping done and we even went to two parties. Hmm, I think I could use another day off. Haha.

Anyway I’ve got to tell you about our bookstore outing because Friday I got an email from Borders Books with a 40% Off coupon on any two paperbacks. What a thrill. We went to Borders on Friday and I caught up on a couple of magazines, had a yummy coffee drink and browsed the shelves.

And, I also got Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury in honor of Banned Book Week. Last year I read The Chocolate War during Banned Book Week and I wanted to make sure to celebrate the freedom to read again so tonight I’m planning to start Fahrenheit. Am I the last person to read this classic?

Oh but the funny thing was that when I was looking for this book I couldn’t find it. I thought, oh my goodness, they’ve taken it off the shelves! I had images of a conspiracy being afoot but finally I found it in the Science Fiction section. Is it me or shouldn’t this also be in the fiction section given that it is a classic?

So how about you? Planning to read any banned books?
