Today’s Book – Banned Books Week

I’m feeling like a bad book blogger. I’ve managed to make it almost all the way through this week without mentioning Banned Books Week once.

Every year I look at the list to see what books were added and once more I’m surprised by what made the cut.  If you want to see the whole list, go here.  I haven’t read all the books on this year’s list but now I feel I should.

Since I usually do talk about a specific book on Thursdays, I thought a banned book would be most appropriate so a Mark Twain book it is!  Eve’s Diary which was banned 105 years ago according to this New York Times article is now safely back on a library shelf where it belongs.

Are you reading anything special for BBW this year?
