Banned Books Challenge

@BiblioBrat is hosting a challenge over on her blog Thebibliobrat.net to encourage bloggers and those interested challenged or banned works to read more of these titles. Banned and challenged books are a hot button issue for a lot of us in the book world. So show your support head on over and join the challenge and pick a banned or challenged book to read. I will be reading The Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follet for the challenge. When I am done reading I will let you know why it was challenged and if I agree with the reasoning.

    I really enjoyed The Pillars of the Earth. I didn’t realize it was a banned/challenged book though. Although now that I think about it I can see why it might be.

    Thanks for the link to that challenge! I loooove reading books just because they’ve been banned. :-)
