On the 9th Day of Christmas – Reader Problems Book Tag

I can’t believe it! Christmas is only 5 days away. Christmas shopping is done, but I’m still not ready for it.

Anyway, continuing on with my 12 Days of Christmas posts.

Banned Books Week

I’m a huge opponent of banning and censoring literature, as a former Literature major and having pretty liberal parents that didn’t censor my reading.

If you’re rebellious enough and have a desire to defend your freedom to read join the banned/challenged books readathon over at Book Dragon’s Lair September 24-30.

I would greatly appreciate it if you vote for the banned book I read. I want to read them all, but unfortunately it’s not possible.

Bout of Books Read-a-thon

Bout of Books is a one-week read-a-thon beginning Monday, August 21st at 12:01 am (your time zone) and ending Sunday, August 27th. And the best part is it’s low-pressure. There are challenges (optional), giveaways, and a grand prize.

Bout of Books is organized Continue reading
