In grad school I got this beautiful #bannedbooks mug from @malloryd23. Here are the ones I own so far and my fave cover/stories behind them.
2) 1984 by #georgeorwell. I saw this cover in England and bought it instantly. I'm a sucker for pulp paperbacks, but occasionally a modern cover will draw me in. Penguin ©2013
3) #AnimalFarm by Orwell again. Plume ©1983
4) #TheCatcherintheRye by #jdsalinger. Not a dynamic cover--I bought this in an airport when I was 17. It utterly transformed me as it does to a lot of 17 year olds. Still, this copy has traveled so many places with me. Little Brown Books
5) #LadyChatterlysLover by #dhlawrence. I also got this one in England at #AladdinsCave in #Norwich. Penguin ©1960
6) #MadameBovary by #gustaveflaubert. This one was found at @mainstreetbooksminot. Signet Classics ©1964
7) #ToKillaMockingbird by #HarperLee. Popular Library ©1962 Cover photo by #CoburnJr

A couple of excellent classics that were also banned for the political statements they were making. Long live banned books ❤️

Time to clear out the cobwebs in my brain. It is a good day to sit back and read one of these classics.

I won this super cute shirt (designed by Greg Pizzoli!) from Cotton Bureau when they did a giveaway for Banned Books Week. It’s so comfortable and I love it!

Just stopping in to thank you guys so much for your support today! A huge thank you to anyone who made an order. I'm so grateful! 💜 There are a couple necklaces still left in the shop, including this rainbow labradorite beauty ✨ Wishing you all a lovely night!
Banned books as table numbers 💕🍎 Check out the blog this evening for floral chandeliers as well! (Link in the profile.)
I found a @bookfairies_seattle book yesterday. This will be on my TBR list. I love finding books and reading. I can't wait to be able to buy the stickers and be a book fairie! Does anyone else do this?

Fahrenheit 451 pins in stock! I watched an episode the other day of The Twilight Zone written by Ray Bradbury. That's not at all interesting, but it was a cool episode... AND, the Kickstarter campaign for the Crystal Shelf pin is almost over, so pledge while you can!

Every year Mr Cuevas, 7th grade science teacher, reads The Outsiders w his homeroom and every year, after they finish the book, they dress up as the characters. Students can choose to dress as the poor, wrong side of the tracks, heart of gold Greasers or as their rival gang, the mean, rich kid Socs. The kids always knock it out of the park w their 60's costumes. #librarianlife #bannedbooks #ponyboy #theoutsiders #librariesofinstagram #nwmsclassics #staygolden #rsdproud @ryan.d.cuevas @reading_school_district_pa

I am reading #theabsolutelytruediaryofaparttimeindian with my freshman English class and listening to #shermanalexie memoir #youdonthavetosayyouloveme
These books are so beautiful written. Sherman Alexie is a phenomenal writer and I feel so lucky to be able to read one of his novels with my students!!
“If you speak and write in English, or Spanish, or Chinese...only a certain percentage of human beings will get your meaning. But when you draw a picture, everyone can understand it.” (P. 5)
I love everything about these books!!!
