Banned Books Week -- Day 4

Our freedom to read can be celebrated by keeping up with the news. The Book Standard provides insight on the book publishing and book selling industries.

The Radcliffe Publishing Course lists the Top 100 Novels of the 20th Century of 1900 - 2000. The list includes 42 banned books, indicated in bolded type.

Vote here for your favorite challenged books and tell why you like it. You also have the opportunity to tell why you think we should celebrate our freedom to read. I chose Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein, a book I gave as a gift to my young nephew as well as a few friends and one of two Silverstein collections in my own library, because the poetry is refreshing and fun.

Voting results will be announced October 2.
