Freedom to Read Week

This week, is Freedom to Read Week. What is it?

Freedom to Read Week is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
As many bloggers may know, this past year, a few times, this issue has been brought up in previous blog posts. And I'm sure most of us have heard or even experienced someone, trying to prevent you from reading a book. Now it's time to celebrate our freedom to read these books. This week, more than ever read, read read (like I need the excuse!) and read challenged books also, take a look at the Freedom to Read Website for other ways to get involved, including BookCorssings Get involved challenge! And release a book into the community (if you can part with it) here's a link for more information.

For me, I plan on reading, some of the banned books on my shelf, including The Subtle Knife by Phillip Pullman, one of many challenged books. What do you plan on doing, for Freedom to Read Week?
