Censorship Week: Read these Banned Books!

Banned Books Week took place earlier this month, but it's never too late to pick up these books and exercise your right to read them.

The group offers the coolest map of challenges to books all over the US from 2007-2010. It's scary stuff, but this map highlights how important it is we pay attention to attempts at censorship in the land of the free.

It was pretty awesome that the BBC celebrated this year by broadcasting banned books being read. You can hear DH Lawrence for another week or so online.
