Banned Book Week is a week I look forward to every year. If you are not familiar with this week, there was a time I was not either… but chances are – you have read a banned book. Here is a little taste of books that are on the list:
To Kill A Mockingbird
Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret
The Color Purple
The Handmaid’s Tale
The Lorax (yes, Dr. Suess)
All Harry Potter Books…
Last year I read and reviewed only banned books during the Banned Book week and it was a lot of fun and informative too!
This year, now that I am a seasoned banned book reader 😉 , I want to do more. I will be hosting some giveaways here and am asking for book bloggers to assist me, by either a) reading and reviewing a banned book during this week, and/or b) sharing your thoughts on a banned book you have already read. I need a minimum of seven participants – one for each day of Banned Books Week.
If you are interested, please fill out the form below and I will be in contact with you. This is going to be a lot of fun.
**Note update to this post on 9/20/11: I have filled the seven (turned out to be eight) blogger daily posts for the contest, however I would love to still have additional Banned Book related posts – such as book reviews, Banned Book Discussions, and giveaways. I have updated the form to show this. I would love to have YOU on the Banned Wagon. 😛
