I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

Another Perpetual Challenge

Rebecca at Lost in Books started a personal challenge and has invited us to join her.
One of my 999 categories is banned/challenged books and I got on my soapbox a bit on one of my reviews so I'll just say that it is up to all of us to protect our freedom to choose what books we read and what we'll allow our children to read. If you agree, or just want to read a "forbidden" book, jump over to the challenge page and join us.

This is a challenge that I started for myself. I hate the idea of books being banned, much like any other book lover. So I began a challenge to read 50 of the most commonly challenged and banned books in the world.

For this challenge, all banned and challenged books you've ever read count. The point of it is to read 50 of them, not necessarily 50 new ones. But, of course, if you'd like to choose 50 new ones, then that is wonderful. This is a perpetual challenge and has no end date. If you'd like to join me in this particular challenge, just leave a comment saying you'd like to participate and then a link to where you will show your progress on the challenge. Book reviews are not required, but, of course, accepted. A few short lines on what the book was about and whether you found it worthy of reading in and of itself (as oppose to the singular fact it may be worthy of reading just because it is banned).

She also list some links where we can find out about banned/challenged books.

1. And Tango Makes Three (2009)
2. The Perks of being a Wallflower (2009)
3. James and the Giant Peach (2009)
4 . Are you there God? It's Me, Margaret (2009)
5. Bridge to Terabithia (2009 - re-read?)
6. In the Night Kitchen (2009)
7. 10,000 Dresses (2010)
8. The Hunger Games (Apr 2012)
