I tend to read a lot of banned books. They're usually worth reading, and nothing like Banned Book Week gets me motivated to actually read the ones that have been sitting on my To-Read list for ages. While these other posts aren't necessarily of the Banned Book Week variety, I thought they might be an enjoyable look back at some older posts and maybe make you aware of some titles you didn't realize were banned or challenged. I might not catch all of them since people will ban some pretty tame stuff, but I'll peg the obvious ones for you. In alphabetical order by title, for your convenience.
Enjoy your freedom to read!

On another note, I've decided to take a bit of a break from writing blog posts, so if you see a slew of guest posts in the next couple of days that's why. If you're interested in being a guest blogger, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or check my contact page.
