Banned Books Are Some of the Best Books!

Banned Book Week 2011 starts TOMORROW! I encourage everyone to participate by reading banned or challenged books. There are plenty to choose from; over 11,000 books are on the list. Banned Book Week lasts from Sept. 24 through Oct. 1, and will be celebrated in lots of fun and exciting ways by many libraries and book stores around the nation. Only YOU can decide what books are appropriate for you. Don’t let anyone censor your literary choices! Books that have changed the way we think of literature and the world around us have been deemed offensive at one point or another, but thankfully enough copies survived the book-burnings to enlighten those open-minded enough to read them. So give The Man the finger, and read a banned book!
