The Boys and the Banned Books

Yes, Virginia, boys do read.

They read a lot... and banning a book won't slow them down either!

(Books featured: Harry Potter 1, 2, and 7; A Wrinkle in Time; Northern Lights; The Color Purple; Captain Underpants.)

What we're actually reading when not posing for Banned Books Week:

Son 1: Heart of a Shepherd by Rosanne Parry
Cricket Man by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Point Blank by Anthony Horowitz
sundry gaming and wrestling magazines

Son 2: The Ersatz Elevator by Lemony Snicket

Son 3: Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs by Giles Andreae

Dad: The Monster's Ring by Bruce Coville


  1. Ha ha! It's the Week of Reading Dangerously ;-P

  2. Wow, I see a couch filled with super heroes!

    Read on, gentlemen. :)


If comments be the food of love, comment on. Give me excess of them... (With apologies to The Bard)
