10 Books to Celebrate Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week

This week all around the world it's Banned Books Week - Celebrating the Freedom to Read! So, here at Bookish Findings, I felt I also had to mark this very important date and I decided to do so by publishing two posts about banned books.

Today I'm publishing 10 Books to Celebrate Banned Books Week and this Thursday, September 25, I'll be publishing 10 Literary Gifts to Celebrate Banned Books Week.

So, after some research, I found out that many classics were once banned or censored. You can find a list of Frequently Challenged Books here

So, the 10 titles below represent a selection of banned or challenged books on that list, whose reading I suggest.


Banned classics

1. The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
2. The Color Purple by Alice Walker
3. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
4. 1984 by George Orwell
5. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
6. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
7. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
8. Beloved by Toni Morrison
9. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
10. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck


I'm a huge fan of the classics but I must confess I didn't realize these titles had been banned in the past. Were you aware of that?

This week's question:
Blogger pet peeves? 

I hate when I've been working on a post for hours and then, all of a sudden, I lost all the work done. Yes, blogger has done that on more than one occasion! I've thought of moving to Wordpress, but I didn't have the courage to make the move yet. 


What about you? Any blogger pet peeves?



Weekly Roundup

So, this week I've published two posts:

And that's it :)
