Interesting Tid-Bit

Orson Wells used a Woodgrain Remington to type many of his famous works. If you look carefully you can see this particular typewriter was actually autographed by the beloved writer.

I couldn't believe some of the books on the challenged lists. I've read most all of them. Who Knew? I love the best books lists. Thanks for sharing these. What an eye opener. I will keep reading books I choose to read, so I guess I can say I read banned books now too. LOL
Thanks, love your site!
