It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Hosting - Banned/Challenged Books Read-a-Thon


Banned/Challenged Books
Read-a-Thon
September 24-30, 2017

Sign up to read at least one banned or challenged book and link up a review. Reviews can be posted on your blog, GoodReads, or LibraryThing. Reviews can also be of books you've read previously.

Check out all the information available at The American Library Association (ala.org).

Per ala.org:
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. While books have been and continue to be banned, part of the Banned Books Week celebration is the fact that, in a majority of cases, the books have remained available. This happens only thanks to the efforts of librarians, teachers, students, and community members who stand up and speak out for the freedom to read.
Banned Books Week would also be a good time to check out your local library and find out what they're doing to insure your freedom to read.

I will read at least one banned/challenged book during the read-a-thon:
