Banned Books Week

Today is the official start of a special Banned Books Week: it's the 30th anniversary of the annual celebration of the freedom to read, highlighting the importance of the first amendment. This year I'll be reviewing one three-book series, and the first book in a different series from the list of the 10 most challenged books and series of 2011.

You can find out more about banned books week at And here's a handy list of all the challenged books I've reviewed. Do you have any favorite frequently challenged or otherwise controversial books?

I'll be reviewing 4 books for Banned Books Week. I always want to cram in as many as possible, but I have to be reasonable too. :) I was only aware of the lists by decade, not the lists by year....It's possible I'd have chosen different books if I knew about the yearly lists...but, then, I've already read the Hunger Games and found the violence inappropriate for my delicate sensibilities. ;)
