I'm hosting this swap in my own groups, but was asked to share it with you as well! Most libraries I've been to usually have a display for Banned Books Week - some even do a whole MONTH - so maybe you can find a banned book at your library too!

Banned Book week this year is Sept 27-October 3. Let's be BAD and read some BANNED books! :)
You can read more about it HERE
And you can find ONE list of banned books HERE And HERE is a Wikipedia link for banned books.

For this swap, read ANY banned book, from ANY list. There seem to be hundreds if not thousands of lists, and some are specific for certain countries only. I'm NOT going to challenge you about if a book is on the banned list or not - nor should your partner - because there are just so many lists out there!

For this swap, you will plan to read ANY book from the banned book list(s) during the week. IT can be a new read or a re-read. Audiobooks are fine, and if the graphic novel specifically is on a list, that's fine too. Really, the idea is to be BAD and read a BANNED book.

Please try to read the book during the banned book week, not starting at the beginning of the month. If you can't finish the book in time - that's ok. Just let your partner know what you think of the book so far and if you plan to finish the book or not.

Before the send by date, send your partner(s) an EMAIL and tell them the title and author of the book. If you can find WHY the book is banned or challenged, please include that. Some lists aren't specific, so if you can't find it, that's ok.

Then, tell you partner what you think about the book - just a few sentences is fine. Do you think it should still be on the banned/challenged list?

You don't have to include graphics or the summary of the book, a review, etc - that's extra, if you wish. You just need to list the author and title, the reason it's banned, if you can find it, and what you think about the book, if it should still be banned.

If you have any questions Please send me a PM as soon as possible so I can get a reply to you. IF you leave a comment below, I probably won't see it until it's time to assign partners. If anyone is interested in a snail mail version of this swap, please send me a PM and let me know.

Optional - if you have some suggestions for Banned books, please feel free to leave them below in the comments section for those who may have trouble deciding on a book. :) Include title and author, when at all possible.
