Πανηγύρισε την ελευθερία να διαβάζεις

When I recently popped into one of San Francisco's most famous independent bookstores, City Lights Booksellers & Publishers, I noticed a display marked "Banned Books." Many of the books I saw were classics -- books I couldn't imagine having grown up without reading. So I'm pleased to tell you that here at Google, we've put together a website where you can explore banned books as part of Banned Books Week, taking place this year from September 29th through October 6th.

It turns out that City Lights played an active role in the history of banned books in America. One of the books on the shelf was Howl, by legendary San Francisco beat poet Allen Ginsberg. City Lights doesn't just sell Howl -- it was the original publisher, and in 1956 went to court to defend itself against obscenity charges.

Νομίζω χειρότερο από να απογορεύσεις ένα βιβλίο είναι να το παραγνωρίσεις. Όπως και να 'χει το βιβλιοπωλείο μου χτύπησε ένα κουδούνι.

να το παραγνωρίσεις

Με την έννοια της παραναγνώσεως ή του "παραγνωριστήκαμε";
