#27 - Read 3 banned books

I finished reading my last banned book today. The three I read were:

"The Bluest Eye" by Toni Morrison
"Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury
"Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl" by Anne Frank

All of these were started by me at some point in my life only to stop reading after a chapter or two. So it was nice to go back and really read them, and really be interested in them.

After church today I was able to come home and run outside with Cassie. Ohhh, it was so gorgeous today! Everyone was out and about so we got to stop and chat with people. I love seeing the older ladies out walking and the kids riding their bikes or throwing the football. I love our neighborhood!! Oh, and I love 60 degree weather!

Hey, did I return "The Bluest Eye" to you? I can't remember. The other two are good ones for the banned-books thing too -- I know I started, did not finish, Fahrenheit 451 when I was way too young to understand it, but I'm not sure I ever even started Anne Frank.

I love your neighborhood too! (I looked up the house that just got listed and it's not on the MLS yet.) It makes me so happy to see people taking advantage of gorgeous days like today!

I don't think you returned it, but I also know I'll never read it again, so don't even worry about it.
