Banned books week (Sept.25 to Oct.2)

"Held annually during the last week of September, Banned books week highlights the benefits of intellectual freedom and draws attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted banning of books across the United States, including books commonly taught in secondary schools."
------according to
The Perks of Being a WallflowerSo, what would be the best way to celebrate this week by reading some the most famous banned books? I'm currently reading 'Perks of being a wallflower ' by Stephen Chbosky.
The Catcher in the Rye
And i'll also be re-reading 'the catcher in the rye' by J.D Salinger.

The reason to read them is just not the 'reasons' because of which the books were banned but enjoy the freedom to read, to open up a little part of world that we didn't knew existed, to drown in that magical effect books have the ability to create.
So let's sit back comfortably on a favorite day of the week and enjoy intellectual freedom.:)

p.s: Did you know that Harry Potter, Twilight and the adventures of huckleberry finn were also banned! 


thank you for stopping by! i'd love to hear from you..:)
