reading banned books

It's been a while since I did a reading challenge, and I think it's time to jump back into it. And where better to start than with the Banned Books Week Challenge. This year, Banned Books Week is from September 26-October 3, and the BiblioRat is hosting a challenge for everyone to read at least one banned (or challenged) book, or even as many as four, during the month of September. Of course I am aiming for 4!

1) The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
2) Vegan Virgin Valentine by Carolyn Mackler
3) The Fighting Ground by Avi
4) The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson

For more books that have been banned or challenged, look here.
ALA's Office of Intellectual Freedom has also put together an interesting map of which books have been banned or challenged in which communities.
