While I generally don't read childrens' books any more, this one was compelling enough to capture - and maintain - my interest.

Even years after his death, my favorite author is still teaching me something new. Check out this fantastic interview with Kurt Vonnegut from the '70s where he discusses growing up, his pivotal experiences in WWII, smoking, and the true definition of the word 'twerp'.

Letters of Note does it again, this time producing Kurt Vonnegut's fascinating account to his father of being taken prisoner by the Nazis, his liberation by the Russians, and repatriation at Le Havre. Solid reading.

So its Read A Banned Book week. I'm a book junkie, so I've already pulled 10 down off my shelves. If you need help to pick a good banned book here are some classics.

Kurt Vonnegut is one of my all-time favorites - not just as an author, but as a person as well. We lost a great one when he died. Here's a slew of motivational posters made from some of his finer quotes.

I can see why everyone is up in arms about this, but I gotta side with Lenore Skenazy on this one - she makes a hell of a lot of sense.

Here's a fascinating piece on what is largely considered to be the greatest novel of its century, and the race to finish it before Orwell died.

Knight Moves, a woefully bad time-traveling romance ebook, gets held up for scrutiny as an open letter to its author. (maybe NSFW)

In light of deer hunting season, I went on a search for funny deer hunting tales and accidentally came acrossed this story called I Hope It Rains in Heaven. It's not exactly the comic antidote I was looking for, but a deeper more nostalgic look at the father son relationship. Being the 5th of 4 boys myself, I knew I had to share it.

Now that Douglas Adams has been dead for 7 years, his widow has commissioned a children's writer to author a sixth installment of the legendary Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy.

George Orwell's 1984 was a hell of a book - it made such an impact on me when I read it in school, I stole the copy I was issued and held on to it all the way up to our fire a couple of years back, and it was one of the first books we replaced afterward. It was and remains one of my all-time favorite reads. Here's a list of the top 10 most depressing quotes from it.

At a recent Q&A, JK Rowling let slip that Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore was, in fact, gay as a day in May.

A British teen has been charged with possessing terrorist materials for owning a book. Granted, it's the Anarchist Cookbook, but just a book nonetheless.
