Even though I have already been complaining on Goodreads about this, I can always complain more. Because really, the self-censorship of "Huckleberry Finn" deserves as much complaining as is possible. Read all about it. Now, I don't think this was done for malicious reasons, but it is still stupid beyond measure.

Other things that are stupid beyond measure: My roomie throwing away my food for two whole nights because I left it downstairs and didn't put it away. Did I mention she left whole bowls of pasta sitting around my kitchen for four days and when I asked her to clean them, she had to wait until she recruited her bf? Oh, and she took my very expensive orange juice to a party and drank it all since she allegedly believed it to be hers. I don't know about anyone else, but I remember when I buy drinks. And if I don't, I ASK before taking an entire carton to a party.

Moving along, I am sad I will have to take a break on my kitty series once I finish the first set since I should probably read a book that I can't finish in two days for a change. I miss reading on my Kindle. I hate the stupid DMP Amazon and Adobe have against each other since virtually every digital library uses Adobe and Kindle cannot read them. I enjoyed reading in bed too, which was so much easier with Kindle. That said, I can't exactly shell out $6 every time I want to read a book. That could get pricey. I am le torn.

Oh god, that Huck Finn censorship is appallingly stupid. Thank you for bringing it to my attention so I can shake my fist in an irritable fashion.

This calls for much fist-shaking.

Thanks for bringing up the Huck Finn issue. Wow.

The Huck Finn thing pisses me off too. Pretending racism didn't happen does not make it go away.

If you want to borrow some e-books just let me know.
