This is Banned Book Week and I always suggest reading and passing on a banned book to celebrate it. After all, if other people weren’t banning books we’d never know which ones have all the best shit in them. Last week I got an email from someone who said that my book was banned in their library and I was all “I’VE FUCKING MADE IT, YOU GUYS” and I started planning all these celebratory protests, but then it turned out that it was an elementary school library and the librarian removed it as soon as she realized it wasn’t a book about a cute mouse. But then I started thinking that maybe if we want to keep selling books we should add some stickers to the cover and try a new, younger audience. I sent a mock-up to my publisher:
PS. I’ve decided that in order to get my next book banned I’m going to entitle it This Library is BULLSHIT.
In unrelated news, it’s time for the weekly wrap up.
What you missed in my shop (tentatively called “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- The Bloggess for President. My slogan is “FREE UNICORNS FOR EVERYONE” because I’m running on a campaign of freeing any captive unicorns that are out there. Because unicorns should be free. For the sake of everyone. Victor says I’m misleading the public with the wording but I pointed out that technically I’m probably the only candidate who will (technically) fulfill my campaign promises. We’ve agreed not to discuss politics anymore for the sake of our marriage.
What you missed on the internets:
- The Christian Science Monitor did the cliff notes of my book. (Spoilers, sweetie.)
- Well, that was unexpected.
This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:
My day = MADE.
