Banned Book Week

JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books, posted this to her website:

" Once again, the Harry Potter books feature on this year's list of most-banned books. As this puts me in the company of Harper Lee, Mark Twain, J. D. Salinger, William Golding, John Steinbeck and other writers I revere, I have always taken my annual inclusion on the list as a great honour. 'Every burned book enlightens the world.' - Ralph Waldo Emerson"

There you go. If a book is worth reading, some nut somewhere has banned it.
