Banned Books Week Reading List

It's that time of year again: Banned Books Week. While I sincerely hope that all and sundry are reading banned books throughout the year, I fully support a full week highlighting what is one of the most odious things one could ever do to a book--deny people the right to read it.

I'll be taking the time this week to post about the topic so you'll have plenty of opportunities to hear me rant about it, but I wanted to share my reading list for Banned Books Week. I'm suspending my other reading activities from now until the 6th so that I can read and review the following books this week:

-Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
-A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
-Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson by Louise Rennison

If I have time for anymore I'll probably just pick one or two of the ones off of my shelf at home.

Hope that you all have an enjoyable Banned Books Week!


  1. Some of the challenged/banned books just blow my mind. Green Eggs & Ham!? What?? Insanity.

  2. I didn't realize Green Eggs and Ham had been banned. Although, when I looked into it I saw that it had been banned in China for "its portrayal of early Marxism." Charlotte's Web was banned right here in the U. S. of A. because some parents thought that talking animals was blasphemous. Oy.
