Texans are still banning books

fahrenSometimes I’m not too proud that I hail from Texas. Now is one of ’em.

The ACLU of Texas is recognizing National Banned Book Week this year — as it has the previous 12 — by releasing an annual report documenting what books have been banned, challenged and restricted in Texas schools.

While there are some positive trends, it looks like Texas schools are still busy banning books — everything from Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 to Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy.
