Banned Books Week

This announcement is a little late, owing to the fact that I didn't realize until I saw it on someone else's blog this morning that this week is Banned Books Week.  I've interrupted my current read, A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin, to read a book on the list of frequently challenged books.

I encourage everyone who reads my blogs to celebrate your freedom to read whatever you choose.  Read a banned book!  This week, next week, any week.  And if you're really subversive like me, you'll read a book just because you hear it's banned.

Here is a video showcasing the top ten banned books of 2009.  A couple of them — My Sister's Keeper, the Twilight Saga — I've blogged about here, and a few of the ones I haven't are now on my reading list.

Are you reading a banned book this week? If so, what are you reading?
