The Sunday Post AKA What’s on my (Mostly Virtual) Nightstand 9-26-21

First of all, today marks the start of Banned Books Week. Books get banned and challenged for a surprisingly more vast array of reasons than people usually think about. Not that topics of sex, race, religion, profanity and politics don’t usually top the list of such books every year. Requests to ban or restrict access to books comes from all sides and all perspectives. Every single year.

But speaking of things that happen on a regular basis, the annual Black Friday Hop hosted by Reading Reality and Caffeinated Reviewer, is expanding this year to a Thanksgiving Week Hop that will start BEFORE Turkey Day and last for a WHOLE WEEK. We hope you’ll join us!

And of course, I have a cat picture. Lucifer doesn’t exactly ban books, but there are plenty of times when he wants to stop me reading no matter what I’m into by getting between me and my book. But this picture is of George learning that if he wants to cuddle with his “older brother” he’ll just have to worm his way into where Lucifer is already fast asleep.
