#1: ray bradbury's fahrenheit 451
reason:  if you read my blog often, you know i'm obsessed enamored with this text and bradbury himself.  i read this for the first time in seventh grade and have read it at least once a year since.  i've spent the better part of my adult life working on projects about it.

i think it is a beautiful, heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, solid story that has so very much to teach us.

don't believe me?  read it again.  i bet you learn something new.

to all the writers out there--those who have been banned/challenged and those who haven't:  thank you for doing what you do.  we hear you.  we feel you.  we understand.
