Would You Rather...
At The Next Best Book Club blog, I have subjected myself to a slew of Would You Rather questions. Here's a taste.
Would you rather have schools teach your book or ban your book?
Having your book taught in schools gives you a guaranteed audience but, if you're someone like Nathaniel Hawthorne or John Milton, it also eventually gives you multitudes of bitter adults who curse and grit their teeth at the mere mention of your name. By contrast, getting your book banned usually turns you into an iconic hero. So ban me.
My sincere thanks to TNBBC's Lori Hettler for running this. It was great, narcissistic fun.
