A Year of READING Dangerously: Update
I’m happy to report that we are one-quarter of the way through the ALA’s Top 100 banned or challenged books of 2000-2009 list! I still need to write a review for the #15 Bluest Eye, but rest assured, it is read.
Here’s an updated, color coded list. PLEASE feel free to help us on our quest! Especially with those books listed in black (like #30 We All Fall Daown, by Robert Cormier) which are not in my local library.

Poster “The camp library is yours – Read to win the war. You will find popular books for fighting men in the recreational buildings and at other points in this camp. Free. No red tape. Open every day. Good reading will help you advance. Library War Service, American Library Association.” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Freelance writer, graphic designer, musician, foodie and Jane Austen enthusiast in Northern Baltimore County, Maryland. As a writer I enjoy both fiction and non fiction (food, travel and local interest stories.) As an advocate for the ARTS, one of my biggest passions is helping young people find a voice in all the performing arts. To that end it has been my honor to give one-on-one lessons to elementary, middle and high school students in graphic design and music. And as JANE-O I currently serve as the regional coordinator for JASNA Maryland and am working on a Regency/Federal cooking project.
