I've seen heaps of references to 'banned' books lately, so I looked it up on Wikipedia. A banned book is just a contraversial book or one that has been banned by some organization at some time. Scary Stories and Goosebumps are on that list because they are sometimes challenged for inclusion in libraries because people think they are "too scary" for kids. Where's Waldo? is on there because it has been banned from some schools for incuding an image of a nude mermaid (I kid you not).

Oh and I forgot to mention...Harry Potter is banned in Christian schools because it's about magic.

That's so stupid. I read the Alvin Shwartz books when I was young! Yes, those illustrations freaked me the heck out but I adored them! Banning Where's Waldo is just braindeath right there.

I'm not big on reading, Ali has a wall covered in bookshelves. H2G2 is one of the few sets of books I can read and enjoy, other than that I'm afraid it's just car manuals in my collection ;-)

Oh! Dur ;p
I've read those books but I'm not really into them.

Buckbeak is so awsome, why the heck don't they make good Buckbeak characters? It's should be criminal!
I want that in the worst way but I'm not about to spend that kind of money on a figurine. It's worth it but I just don't have the money to splurge :\

That figurine is beautiful but yeah expensive to splurge on...

There's places here that sell end of line stuff plus some of the shops tend to have even discontinued lines on the shelves until they sell them all. I'll keep an eye open, I've seen Harry figures a few times.

After weeks of horrible weather, the sun has come out and it's clear blue sky. But it's howling wind so it's really fresh outside :-)

Ooooo Harry figures! I don't have any HP figures if you can believe that. I have pins, banners, posters, etc but no figures! It's baffling ;p

Ooooo howling winds, that's awsome. YOu should take photos of the beach again, the waves must be crashing!

These were Ken/Barbie sized, I'm trying to think if there were other characters in the shop but I'm sure it was only Harry...

*sighs* I'd love to, I don't think my sore foot would be up to walking down the soft sands...
