"As of July 8, McAnelly said, 48 books had been bought by people from the AfterEllen community, and a shipment of 40 had already arrived. It’s been people from all over the country who have ordered a copy, she said.
The donated books are still coming in, said McAnelly, and as long as they are, the bookstore will continue to serve as an outlet for their distribution.
“There’s a need for that,” said McAnelly.
The books are stacked high on the counter immediately behind the registers – in a location that’s hard to miss, and all an interested teen needs to do is ask for a copy, said McAnelly. She said she’s not going to check to see if it’s a local teen that is asking for the book, because AfterEllen’s goal is for any interested teen to be able to read it.
“If any teen has enough wherewithal to ask for the book, then we’ll give it to them,” she said.”

  4. Cape's board abolishes entire reading list

    diversityinya:

    If you’ve been following the story of a Delaware school board’s decision to remove The Miseducation of Cameron Post from its high school summer reading list, apparently the final decision is in — the entire reading list has now been removed.

    That means not only has Cameron Post been removed, other books including Gene Luen Yang’s Boxers, Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park, John Lewis’s March, and even John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars will no longer be recommended as summer reads for incoming freshman at Cape Henlopen High School. A sad end to a really wonderful and diverse reading list.
