    Love the color thesaurus, it has so many uses. You did a super job rounding up articles about banned books. 🙂

    So many good links you posted that I just read and enjoyed. And that quote by Patrick Rothfuss– awesome!
    Thanks so much for all your hard work putting this together. I really appreciate it.

    It is so easy to get sucked into these post for hours just reading! I can’t imagine how much time it takes to put together! I especially enjoyed the post on allusions and the color thesaurus. Thanks for pulling this all together!

    You have so many great banned book links this week, Lark. This is an important topic and I missed it this year. Last year I read two banned books for the week. I am always so amazed when I see the lists of banned books. Some I’m not surprised about, but others are totally puzzling to me. Now I have to go and follow some of these links!
