This week, during our carpool to work, NPR was talking about banned books.
Sander: “I agree that some books should be banned.”
Mike D: “…”
Sander: “For example: all those books that they make you read in high school. I think Ethan Frome should be banned. Literacy would skyrocket by 80% if that no one had to read Ethan Frome.”
Mike D: “ha! That is actually an excellent example. I hated that book. Though I don’t remember much about it. Something about a sled accident.”
Sander: “A guy is sad in the winter for 230 pages.”
