A slightly late happy Banned Books Week!

Celebrate by reading books that cause a stir and make people think. I will admit that I didn’t care for a lot of the banned classics. Guilt. Guilt. Though if anything that makes me want to keep them in schools all the more–if I had to suffer through them then they should too! 😉

It’s amazing what will get a book challenged or banned. (I mean, Judy Blume, really? I grew up on those… And Bridge to Terabithia, basically for a sad ending?)

Check out Y.A. Love for a Banned Books Week Giveaway. We know the classics, but there are also a lot of excellent modern young adult books getting challenged what seems like every week. There’s also more information on banned reading over there, so swing by for a visit.

And check out this treasury of crafts inspired by banned books and authors.

  1. Hooray Banned Books Week!

    Your Etsy treasures are always delightful to browse, though they make me wish I had loads more money.
