Banned Books Week

Banned Book Week is officially today! Are you taking part? If so, which books are you going to read that are on the banned books/challenged list? I am taking part of it, but I don't have the time to necessarily sit down and read one of them, but I am going to mark each one off my list (and plan on reviewing each) as I am done. I posted a list of the reads I am going to read that are banned. I am sure you were shocked or surprised to see some of them on there as was I.
You can go to to see the top 100 banned/challenged books and find out why there are banned/challenged as well as other information. Banned Book Week starts today September 25 - October 2.
I am going to not only this week, but until my list is finished, read the 'banned/challenged' book and try to help get the word out there that there are a lot of books on the list like The Color Purple or Gone With The Wind or Huckleberry Finn that I think we can all agree shouldn't be on that list. What do you think of Banned/Challenged Books?
Have a great Saturday Everyone!

Thank you Sheila:) I am enjoying your posts this week as well. I was going to post a review for books I have read in the bast that are banned for each day of the week but I didn't want to seem like a copycat to you. It would be way to similar. No worries:) I am fully enjoying your posts, especially on The Diary of Anne Frank. I love that book. One of my favs. It amazes me it is on the banned book list.
