September 24th-October 1st is banned book week. It may not seem as dangerous and exciting as Shark Week on the Discovery channel (you know you watch it!) but it's actually more so. There are still people out there that want to control what we read, stomping all over our freedom to think for ourselves.
You can find a list of all the books that have been recently challenged here, but the main website, link above, has loads of information on challenged books, what it means, and what happens. Check it out, and do the virtual read-out!
Me thinks it's time to buy some banned books!
