September has been dubbed the unofficial
Month of Banned Books
in order to celebrate literature, freedom of speech and of the press, and creative liberty.
If you support reading banned books, please copy and post the above banner onto your blog/myspace/facebook/whatever. Banned Books Month was created and is supported by Donna at Bites. Since 1982, Banned Books Week has taken place during the final week in September every year. But in 2009, we're taking it a bit farther, making the entire month of September in honor of banned books.

Here's a list of books banned in the USA.
I challenge you to read as many banned books as you can get your hands on this month.
I strongly encourage talking to your librarians, teachers, friends, etc about reading banned books and supporting the Banned Books Month. Thanks, and have a fantastic BBM!
