9/12 books

  As a bibliophile and a librarian, I strongly believe in the freedom to read. Every year, I dedicate a full week in reading and discussing banned/challenged books for the Banned Book Week but why stop at one week? So I was glad that The Eclectic Bookshelf is hosting this challenge to spread more awareness of banned/challenged books.
