Banned / Challenged Books Reading Challenge 2017


Hosted by: Book Dragon's Lair
Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2017


Rules / Guidelines:
  • Read books that have been banned or challenged. Or, read nonfiction books about censorship, book burning, etc.
  • Reviews are encouraged, even if it's just telling someone about the book. Reviews can be posted on your blog, or another site such as GoodReads or LibraryThing.
Levels:
  1. Read 1 book. You are an Ember. You're small but mighty just waiting to burn the structure down.
  2. Read 2-6 books. You are Creeping. You're burning with a low flame and spreading slowly.
  3. Read 7-12 books. You are a Blow-up fire. Sudden increase in fire intensity strong enough to upset control plans
  4. Read 13+ books. You are Uncontrolled. Any fire which threatens to destroy life, property, or natural resources.
✹ Hoping to read several banned/challenged books during the year, so I'm signing up at the second ("Creeping") level.
