Number 3 in the series. Fun for list-makers and readers alike!

October just had to be Paranormal month, so we missed out on a Banned Book Week tie-in. If you like reading banned books, here's your chance to spread the word about some you enjoyed!

Any banned or challenged books are elligible for this list.

Come up with your top ten list and send it to your partner. Include title and author for each book.

You can hand write it or type it. Decorating is encouraged, though you don't have to go overboard. Create something that looks nice--something that would make you smile when you opened it. You can make it look like a checklist or just a numbered list.

I will angel if you're flaked on, but all members of the group in good standing are invited to join, so I hope no one here would flake. Questions/comments? Message me or post below.

Useful links-- thanks, @camelsamba

Here's a list from the American Library Association of the most frequently banned or challenged books:

Have to admit, I haven't even read 10 of those! Wikipedia has a broader list (that includes more children's and YA books).

Sorry, I forget how to make URLs all clicky-clicky...

(and the wikipedia link should have underscores before and after each word that shows up as italics...)
