Speaking of Banned Books...

This is a pre-challenge announcement. I'm going to be hosting a Banned Books Challenge starting January 2009 (I don't think anyone else has one of these, but please let me know if you've heard of something like it. I don't want to step on any toes around here). The goal will be to read 12 banned books by the end of next year. I have already put together a site here, which includes a list of banned books, although I have yet to make buttons and a sign up sheet. This is really just to get you interested.

I know everybody signs up for tons of challenges at the beginning of the year so I thought if I put mine out there early then more people would have it in their minds to participate. This will be my first time hosting a challenge so I hope to get some good participation. I'll post about this again as it gets closer, I just wanted to let you all know it was going to be available. I'm super excited for it!

P.S. Don't forget to leave a comment here for a chance to win one of three books!

Katrina: Thanks for the heads up. I'll be sure to watch it. Maybe it will be alright though because theirs is only a 6-month challenge? Hmmmm....

Oh, this sounds so cool! I'll keep an eye out, I think this is one I'd love to participate in. I'm all about doing things people tell me not to! :D
