Read a banned book challenge

Elaine Anderson of Pelham Public Library in Fenwick, Ontario, is promoting the reading of banned books at her Fahrenheit 451 site:

"Just in time for Freedom to Read Week, the Pelham Public Library is issuing this challenge to readers everywhere.

"Set a goal for yourself to read as many banned or challenged books as you wish between February 26 (Freedom to Read Week) and June 30, 2007. Visit the Pelham Public Library’s Fahrenheit 451: Banned Book Blog to set your goal and report on your progress. Not sure what to read? Check out the lists on the sidebar, click on our LibraryThing banner or visit some of the links. Don't forget to visit your own library in person too. Just so you know you aren't alone in this, I let you know which 'banned' authors are responding to the challenge to date.."
