Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week Banner, originally uploaded by DML East Branch.

It's the American Library Association's Banned Books Week. As an intense lover of books, it's a good day to say "Boo Yah!" to those darn censors and go read a banned book. A few recommendations from the list of commonly banned books:

  • The Color Purple
  • Harry Potter
  • Are you there God? It's me, Margaret.
  • Brave New World
  • Bridge to Terabithia
  • The Giver
  • How to Eat Fried Worms
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Their Eyes Were Watching God
  • James and the Giant Peach

Did I miss any other good ones?
