I Read Banned Books
tues 27 sept 2011

September 24 to October 1 is Banned Books Week, during which we celebrate the freedom to read!

Here's the list of Banned and Challenged Classics. And of that list, I've read:

9. 1984, by George Orwell
16. Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley
17. Animal Farm, by George Orwell
33. The Call of the Wild, by Jack London
40. The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien
45. The Jungle, by Upton Sinclair

I bought #57. Sophie's Choice, by William Styron... But it started out so boring I had to set it aside! *laughs*

And here's the list of Frequently challenged books of the 21st century. From the 2010 list, I've read (or listened to at the day job):

1) And Tango Makes Three, by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson
3) Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley
5) The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins
10) Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer

So many books to read, so little time!
