I didn’t say “no more challenges” after signing up for R.I.P. IV ... but I should have. However, I’m a just little annoyed (read: incensed) at the moment with those who would dare to think that, because they don’t like something, it shouldn’t be available to anyone else. (And with spineless politicians ... and Queensland wonders why southerners see it as a behind-the-times backwater....)
Ahem ... *steps down from soapbox* ... so I’m in the mood to flout the Moral Majority by reading a banned book.
Yes, you did read that correctly: a banned book. With so much other reading to do I have - for once - taken the prudent course and elected to read only one, slim, book that I’m bound to read this month anyway:
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad... courtesy of the Banned and Challenged Classics list; contested on grounds of racism.
