Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Banned/Challenged Reading Challenge



Banned/Challenged Books
Reading Challenge
2017

Hosted by me so I'd better sign up!
For more information or to sign up, click here

Basically read books that have been banned or challenged. Or you could read non-fiction books about censorship and/or banning books.

There are four levels and I should go for uncontrolled because of my passion about the subject. Maybe I can read, or re-read, the 13+ children's books ;-) There are 130 books on the frequently challenged children's books list at ala.org!

I'm going for creeping and hope to read 2-6 books. With reviews!

Wow. A quick list of the ones I'd like to read sooner than the others and the ones (~) I already own. Plus I still want to go through the children's books that are on the list and read the picture books.
