Banned Books Project

***Putting this one on hold for now***

Dates: Ongoing, no time limit
Hosted by: Bonnie Jacobs of Bonnie's Books

  • From the project's blog:
    "Members of the Banned Books project will read and post about banned books. That's it. No time limit, no required number to complete, just reading any book that has ever been challenged or banned; and registration is always open."
  • If you want to be a contributor to the project blog, email Bonnie at emerging dot paradigm at yahoo dot com. Then you will be able to post your reviews of banned books, as well as cross-post them on your own blog, if you choose. Remember to include Banned Books in the subject line and include your blog URL (if you have one).

See the Banned Books Project blog here.
