Announcement for 2010

A new year, a new decade...and hopefully new things happening in this space. I plan to blog here more for one thing.

Also, I was thinking since the actual, planned banned books group didn't pan out, this is what I want to do with my banned books blog: Reviews.

That's right, we will review banned books. Who's we you ask? Well, anyone really. Even you. Do you want to review a banned book? Send it to me.

I will review some myself and I am inviting guest reviewers to submit their reviews.

Please include the complete and correct title of the book, author, publisher, ISBN, price, let us know whether it's in print or not...and also a few lines on where the book is (or was) banned and why.

I am pleased to announce that my friend Judy Bussey who blogs at Appalachian Roots has said she'd do the first guest review.

So...Judy, we're waiting.

Great idea, Jawahara! I think I have a title to review, too. Let me double check that it was indeed banned and not just a hot topic of controversy. Glad to have you back

Hey, that would be great. I forgot but I had meant to also say that banned children's books would be especially interesting. So, if the one you're thinking of was not really banned....would you do a review of a banned kid's book?

Also, the only requirement is that the book was banned for some reason, somewhere. It does not currently need to be banned.
