September 25 – October 2 is officially Banned Books week 2010.
Each year new books are challenged and/or banned across the country for reasons such as language, sexual content, violence, and many more. Many of them you may be pretty familiar with: The Catcher in the Rye, Harry Potter… the Dictionary. Check out what’s been banned/challenged for 2009-2010: Banned Books Week
What do you think about banning books? Is censorship a good thing? A bad thing? A little of both? Can people decide what they want to read on their own or should someone decide for them? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
