^I had no idea. The rest of the infographic is a timeline of banned books through history. Pretty cool.
Author C.H. Armstrong talks about Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath and why it (and the attempted censorship of it) is close to her heart. Also about the Library Bill of Rights (something I’d never heard of).
Book Riot has an awesome bundle of banned bookish stuffs, that I, er, might have succumbed to. Ahem. Because I’m a complete sucker for all things bookish, good deals, and like I said…I like feeling like a rebel once in awhile. I actually already have these socks but seem to have lost one.

Frostbeard Studio and Bookworm Boutique are having a joint giveaway! I love that brilliantly loud red mug, and it not only comes on mugs but t-shirts, bags…I’m having so much trouble not buying it on EVERYTHING.
Bustle has a phenomenal list of quotes on censorship, and I want ALL OF THESE written on the walls of my house. ALL. Or maybe just inked onto my body.
