  1. This is a great challenge, I just can’t do any more this year. I am on a mission to make a dent in my shelves!

  2. I’m doing a challenge for banned books also, I’m behind on it too. LOL! I’m reading Kaffir Boy right now as my second selection of four. Stop by my blog, I have something for you.

    • BrownGirl – Thank you for the award! I’m going to try and read banned books throughout the year. I’ve read many of the “classics” but very few of the YA titles so I’ll concentrate on those.

  4. Masha – Thanks for the link. Pullman is one of my favorite authors. I love his views about “the church” and the fact that he is fearless.
