TSS: Banned Books and My 100th Review

Banned Books Week started yesterday in the United States and runs through next Saturday.

To celebrate my freedom to read banned and challenged books, I am posting a spotlight of a book that has been banned or challenged in the United States every day of Banned Books Week at 2 pm.  Each is a book that I own and have read.  Here’s the list you can look forward to:


  • Kaffir Boy by Mark Mathabane
  • The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • Native Son by Richard Wright
  • In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
  • To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  • A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle
I’m also hoping to re-read “A Wrinkle in Time” this week and get a real review up for it.
Actually, I’m hoping to put up one book review per day next week, if possible.  Why?
Because tomorrow I am going to be posting my 100th book review since I started this blog!
Immediately after my 100th review posts, you will see another post announcing a really, really awesome contest.  I just went out last night and got some of what I needed for this contest.  My husband wasn’t super excited about it, but I am!
So, you may want to get me in your Google Reader this week, or you may miss something!
