Freedom to Read

This came to my attention via Lady Crumpet's site and I thought it was most interesting - September 20 - 27 is Banned Books Week.

Our constitutional right to read what we want is certainly something to celebrate. I feel so lucky that many of the most challenged books were actually required reading during my school years. A big hooray to the teachers that wanted us to expand our minds (and to the parents who let them do their jobs).

A quick look over the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of the Last Decade revealed I had read 37 out of the hundred. (the ones I've read are highlighted)Not too bad but now I'm wondering about the other 63.

So pick up a banned book this week and celebrate your freedom to read! After all, how would you have gotten through your pre-teen years without "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret."
