I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Banned Books Week 2009 - Reading Your Rights showing at Schuler Books
Tomorrow night, there is going to be a screening of the mini-documentary Reading Your Rights about a Denver bookstore's refusal to turn over purchase records to the police, followed by a discussion on Reader Rights! Hosted at Schuler Books at Eastwood Towne Center in Lansing, MI on, Thursday, October 1, 2009, from 7-8:30pm. (I totally stole this off Whitney's FB, but I thought it was worth mentioning! And she said I could!)
Also, Schuler Books (at least at Eastwood Towne Center, I don't know about Okemos) is taking donations right now for the ACLU and ABFFE. Now through the end of the week, if you tell your friendly Schuler Books cashier that you would like to make your purchase as a donation to the ACLU, they will donate 20% of your purchase amount. But you have to tell them! This is a very important step. No telling, no donating. That's just the way it is. So, tell them! Also, if you want to make a donation to the ABFFE, simply tell your friendly Schuler Books cashier how much you would like to make that donation for, and they will gladly tender that amount with your purchase. This is all happening through the end of this week, so hurry in to your local Schuler Books (and by local, I mean the one at Eastwood Towne Center) and buy some books and make a donation! I mean, honestly, who doesn't like books? And donating to a good cause just makes you all warm and fuzzy inside. Well, books do too, so it's really like a win-win situation here, folks!
