Banned Books Week: i heart daily

Does everyone know our beloved i heart daily? Diva Melissa Walker and Anne Ichikawa send fabulous daily newsletters about heartable things in style and entertainment, as well as beauty and news. Check the website out if you haven't.

Today they posted about Banned Books Week. They call for you to "put on our civil liberties hat" and pick up a banned book.

"Here are the The Top Ten Most Frequently Challenged Books of 2009 from the American Library Association’s (ALA) Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF). The list includes some books about a vampire, a wereworld and some girl. Maybe you've read them."

Thanks, Anne and Melissa! We heart you and banned books daily!

I have written a piece called I Read Banned Books: Celebrating Intellectual Freedom and Literacy and have a tag at my blog for all posts related to banned books. It's a hot topic for me.
