Banned Books Week September 27-October 4, 2008

What is Banned Books Week all about? Simply freedom. The freedom to read whatever you want without fear of discrimination or censorship. See the Top 100 Challenged Books 2000-2007 here:
Take a look at the list. You might be surprised by the titles on the list. You may have read some banned books without even knowing it. If you have, are you surprised that the book has been challenged? Read a banned book. Embrace your freedom to read and celebrate Banned Books Week.

Here are the books that I've read on the list:
The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
