Weekly Reading Roundup
December 24, 2012 4 Comments
Some more Christmas shopping, I think I’m more or less OK now. Also I got a box of 20 banned books, for subscribing to a national newspaper here in the Netherlands. So there’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, The Hunchback of the Notre Dame, Metamorphosis, some Dutch banned books (I didn’t even know any Dutch books had been banned). Anyway, a few years’ worth of Banned Books Month reads!
