A Year of READING Dangerously — update


I redid the master list (here in three parts) so everyone could see what was read, what was being read, and what was available at the (local Hereford) library.  Check the list and see if you can help us out on our collective read. I really do not want to read Captain Underpants… so if some one could take that on I’d be very grateful.

How to play along… read a book on the list (it counts if you have recently read the book). Send me a note at: reetsgee@gmail.com telling me a little something about the book, why you chose it, what you liked or didn’t like. Then look at the matrix at the bottom of the blog post and see why the book might have been banned. If  you have a jpeg photo of the book send it along. I’ll happily link to your blog or other web page if you give me the address.

 

What if there is a book that has already been read that you REALLY want to do? Please feel free to write it up. I’d be interested in seeing your take.

What if I want to keep my review anonymous? No worries, I’ll keep your name off the review. Just let me know.

Books in black on the list are not in the local library and not on my shelf. So if you have them and are willing to loan them please let me know. That would also be most helpful.

 

This is the matrix I use in trying to determine why a book has been challenged or banned.
