Banned Books Challenge
This will be my first challenge as a new blogger and I'm excited to participate! I love being challenged to read books, especially those I may not read otherwise. I really would have loved to get in on the Classics Challenge, due to the definitive lack of Classics reading I do (um... none), but I was a little late for that, so that classics will have to wait until 2008. As for this challenge, I quickly signed up to read five. Though that seems low, I have so many other things I want to read that I felt throwing five extra in there wouldn't hurt too much, but would be a good mind stimulator. For those of you that read my 100 Book Meme, you will see that I loathe the book The Great Gatsby, yet I've placed it on my challenge list. I figure, I've read it three times and simply couldn't bring myself to like it, yet I can't give you a single reason why. I just don't like it. Maybe, by reading it from the perspective of someone trying to figure out what was so wrong with the plot that it had to be challenged and banned from many schools, I may like it a little bit better. I will certainly let you know. I can't wait to see what other people decide to read for this challenge!
