The Banned Book Project

If you're following along on The Banned Book Project, you should definitely get 120 Banned Books: Censorship Histories of World Literature by Nicholas J. Karolides, Margaret Bald, and Dawn B. Sova. It is an EXCELLENT book on the subject, and it's the book I've chosen to follow along with for this project.

Here's me introducing the project:
