2007 Banned Books Week: Ahoy! Treasure Your Freedom to Read and Get Hooked on a Banned Book
Sept 29 – Oct 6, 2007 is Banned Books Week! Wanna celebrate?

I’m offering a mini-challenge, it’s really simple. Read any banned book during those dates! If you write a review, come back here and sign the comments (or Mr. Linky if I can figure out why they keep disappearing before then.) Any banned book, banned in any country, banned for any reason, banned by any organization/library/group.

Oh and if you can’t finish a book in a week, that’s okay. As long as you start it in that time period, come back when you finish to tell me about it!

You don’t have to post about this on your blog but if you want to, great!
