Welcome to the Book Nook! This is the weekly thread for Avocados to discuss books we’re currently reading, recommendations, genre, and serious literary criticism.
This week’s recommended discussion: Banned Book Week begins Sunday. What experiences have you had with censored books? What are some of you favorite banned titles?
Banned and challenged list from the ALA: http://www.ala.org/advocacy/bbooks/frequentlychallengedbooks/classics
Wikipedia’s list of books banned by governments, by country: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_books_banned_by_governments
Because we’re here to use our words, this is a NO GIF/YouTube/social media embed zone. The OTs are full of clutter, and I want to keep that out of this thread. Pictures of books related to a post are fine, though.
