5.31.2014 - Reading became a form of peaceful protest today when thousands of citizens in the nations of Zandia and Bialya took copies of the books 1984 by George Orwell and Farenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury into public spaces and openly read them. Both books are on the proscribed reading list in those two nations. Sources suggest that crates of the two books were left in locations throughout Zandia and Bialya overnight. Thus far, the government of both nations seem paralyzed by these "read ins" perhaps aware of how assaulting and arresting citizens for the mere act of reading a banned book might appear to the outside world.
