Bibliophile; Banned Books Week

Today is the stat of a week long celebration, and awareness, of banned books.  Book censorship is something that we still are dealing with in the 21st Century. Since 1982, Banned Books Week is an online and in person community that celebrates by hosting different reading events across the US.  According to the Banned Books Week website, over 11,000 books have been questioned since 1982, and 311 of those were reported in 2014 alone.  You can change your Twitter or Facebook picture to declare that you read banned books, by clicking here.
