Yeah, you read the title right. First, we've got the serious stuff. There's a great discussion going on RIGHT NOW at Fabulous Agent Kate's blog about censorship, book ratings, and all kinds of interesting stuff. It's definitely worth checking out.
For me, the thing about censorship is that it always makes the book in question sound a lot more... well, ENTICING. Once I hear that a book is the subject of a big ol' brouhaha, I want to read it. Part of it is that I want to make up my own mind, but I'll also admit it freely: I'm lookin' for something JUICY.
And the whole act of censoring it or condemning it or whathaveyou only increases the juiciness. Look at what it did for the Count.
This video really makes me *BLEEP*.
By the way, did you notice that I'm running another contest? AGAIN? Check out yesterday's post for a chance to win a signed book.
