Take a few moments to use your freedom this week to read one of the hundreds of banned books during Banned Books Week. Might I suggest one of the titles from the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990-2000? For example, the Harry Potter series is number 7 on the list and makes for some excellent reading. I hear that Mark Twain fellow is pretty good too and he shows up at number 5 with The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
Looks like Michelle’s Banned Books project is defunct and this year Solonor has stepped up to the plate to take it on and host it so if you have the old site in your blogroll you may want to update your link (as I have) to point to the new site Solonor’s running at the Third Annual Banned Books Project. Sol has taken the time to enter all 100 of the most frequently challenged books in the new blog complete with summaries and listings of why they were challenged all so that they’ll be searchable by folks who stop by. See how much Solonor loves us?
