At little junkies, we want to set you up with the best of the best so you’ll never be lonely. This week stop (!) in the name of love, and check out a good book:

In honor of the last day of Banned Books Week our “Love Connection” and “Retro Review” have joined together and had a beautiful baby “Love Review”. While the name may seem like it came straight out of an US Weekly celebrity baby cover story, BBW has really reminded us just how much we love to read and where that love came from.
Growing up my mom always encouraged me, and my sisters, to read. She instilled in us that if you could read, you could do anything. I don’t recall my mother ever being too worried about what we were reading. I had great freedom in the books I chose to read. Later on in life, after reading The Perks of Being A Wallflower, I would realize that was because our parents had taught us to be a filter, not a sponge, as we go through the world.
