In honor of Banned Books Week, I picked up a novel by an author I've long wanted to read but never got around to. Their Eyes Were Watching God is quite possibly one of the most amazing and beautifully constructed novels I've ever read. Actually, still reading. It's one of the few books that makes me want to copy down passages in my journal to mull over later. Only about 1/4 of the way into it, but I know it's one that I'll be thinking about months from now.
