Saturday! The final day of the Official Banned Book Week and for myself, I am a little bummed. My week could not have been busier. I worked Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and had something each of those evenings I was committed to. Thursday, Friday, and Today have been the fall book sale and I have been there at least 12 hours a day. My reading time has been close to not. I am however in the middle of: Go Ask Alice, Brave New World, and In Cold Blood (audio for book club). My banned book week apparently will trickle over into next week a bit.
We have a couple more blogs connecting their banned book posts today:
Guy Vestal from Counter Culture Critic writes a passionate post of where censorship starts.
Heather at Based On a True Story writes about “Is Book Banning Ever Ok?”
All the other amazing posts that went up this week on banned books, banned book reviews, and giveaways are found here.
Note: Commenting on any of my banned book related posts this week will enter you into my giveaway. (one entry per relevant comment)
I hope you enjoyed Banned Book Week and I really hope that you read some of these great posts that went up this week. I have read every one and added a couple “must reads” to my list by seeing what they are talking about.
As for me – I am back to the book sale this morning. It is the last day and it is the bag sale – $2 for a brown paper bag that you fill with books. Always a good time 🙂

I need to participate one year but I would need to plan in advance. The book I’m reading now will be reviewed towards the end of November.
You actually linked to it? I am shocked! I actually tried to offend as many people as possible, in the hopes of someone “banning” me! LOL, it didn’t work… Thanks for posting it. 🙂
Wow, a $2 bag FILLED with books?! What a deal! 😀
Hello there I am so excited I found your site, I really found you by error, while
I was researching on Yahoo for something else, Anyways I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a marvelous
post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have
time to go through it all at the minute
but I have saved it and also included your RSS feeds,
so when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the excellent work.
I hope you share with us the books you buy at the sale. I am green with envy of such a large sale. I might also mention that In Cold Blood is one of your banned books. I thought it was a terrific book and have read it twice. So interesting the way he reported on this crime.
I’m thinking I would love the book sale. What a bargain!!
I always go back for the bag of books for $1 too! I will finish up my banned book next week too.
I am TOTALLY jealous of the bag sale. I love finding great book deals. This just has to be magical. Thanks again for hosting a great week!
I believe your book sale is all over and done with now. I saw the pics on FB and it looks like it was a huge success! You did good!
