My Challenge To You

I was informed yesterday that Banned Books Week began this past Saturday, September 25th, and ends this coming Saturday, October 2nd.  I was ecstatic that I had already been participating in this event for the past few months now.  Then I got to thinking .... how many other people are participating?

Here is my challenge to you, dear followers and friends of said followers, pick one book that has been banned or challenged and read it this week.  It's okay if you don't finish it by this Saturday, but at least start it and make a commitment to finish it.  If you don't know of any books that are banned or challenged, you can take a look at my previous posts or you can click on my Top 100 List tab at the top of my page.  You may be surprised that some books you already knew about are on this list.

We have to be more open to the stories people have to tell.  You never know what you can learn from someone else, unless you spend time with that person or read their story.

Happy Reading! =)


  1. Just letting you know I love this blog, and I featured you as a featured follower in my Book Buff newsletter :)

  2. hmm... I should read Lovely Bones. I've had the book for about 6 months and it is still sitting in my TBR pile. I should move it to the top of the pile!

  3. Well, I'm kind of dreading when I reach that point because I tried reading it when the movie came out and I gave up on it. I found it boring and didn't even finish it. I'm going to have to finish it this time around though... =)

  4. I read two banned books this week:
    The Color Purple (finally) and The Sledding Hill by Chris Crutcher (it's about book banning.)

  5. Yay!!! Two banned books in one week = You are awesome! Keep up the good work =)
