Banned Books Week

It is Banned Books Week again. I get a big kick out of celebrating the Freedom to Read. I've read many of the books on the 100 most frequently challenged books, though I have only read The Chocolate War from the 10 most frequently challenged books in 2004. Looks like I need to get busy and read some challenged books.

"Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech."—Benjamin Franklin

What I find discouraging is that year after year there is still a need to observe Banned Books Week.
