Banned Book Week
Head on over to the ALA website to learn more about Banned Book Week.
There have been lots of discussions on various blogs about recent challenges to Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson and Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, as well as other books. It's so cool to see people speaking up for the freedom to read and think for ourselves.
I went to the library today and picked up Twenty Boy Summer, Fahrenheit 451, and 1984. I've been reading Finnikin of the Rock and really enjoying it, but plan to take a break and read Fahrenheit 451 and Twenty Boy Summer. I'm not sure if I'll get to 1984 this time.
