Banned Books Week 2011

September 29, 2011

Hello all! Sorry for the mass of video posts this past week. I promise, I will be posting a written review later on! I am just getting the hang of this whole BookTubing thing and I am having a lot of fun.

So ANYWAY. Banned Books Week; 24 Septmber - 1 October, 2011.

For more information, check out the Banned Books Week and ALA websites.

This video is about my opinions on banned books, those I have read, and those that I hope to read in the future. Please show your support! This year, is hosting a Virtual Read-out, so why not make your own video, where you read from one of your favourite banned or challenged books? I will be back later this week with my virtual read-out from one of the books mentioned in my video below.
