Banned Books Week is coming up!

This year marks the 26th Anniversary of Banned Books Week! This year, BBW runs from September 29th - October 6th.

Check out these links from ALA to find out the Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2006, as well as the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books from 1990-2000, and the Top 10 Most Frequently Challenged Authors from 1990-2004.

Also, Wikipedia has a List of Banned Books, which includes type of literature information as well as the reason the books was banned. Very cool. **This is an incomplete list.**

Do any of the books on these lists surprise you? Leave me a comment and let me know what you think!!
