Banned Books Week (September 27th– October 3rd)

As a lot of you may know, Banned Books Week starts tomorrow!

Here’s there website: http://www.bannedbooksweek.org/

And here’s their Twitter: @BannedBooksWeek

Banned Books week is intended to encourage reading, literacy and critical thought, which are all important and laudable goals. I can’t help feel that we’re moving farther away from these goals every day, especially over matters of religion. Let’s try to read books that may shock and confuse us, this week, because it’s ok to be shocked, confused and unhappy, as long as it makes us think. Right?

I’ll be reading and reviewing banned and controversial books throughout the week. What are your plans? Do you have any must-read recommendations for me? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
