Dear Beautiful Readers,

Banned Books Week is the last week of September... This is a celebration of our freedom to read! My favorite topic of the year!

Of course, these days, books aren't really "banned", thank goodness. But it's important to fight censorship and consider and celebrate our freedom of expression and our intellectual freedoms.

Our writing topic for our postcards is anything about banned books or censorship!! What banned books will you read this month? What's your favorite banned book?

How many of this year's Top Ten Most Challenged Books have you read?
(I've read half of them! Yay Reading! :)

How about the Top 100 from 2000 to 2009 or Top 100 from 1990 to 1999?

And here's an interesting read:
Wikipedia: Books banned by governments

As usual, if you have more to say than will fit on a postcard, feel free to fill up a notecard or write a letter! If you don't have the time or inclination, that's fine too.

A. Sign up by posting below.

B. Click on the person posting above you and send them a personal message with your mailing address.

C. When someone signs up below you, send a postcard to them.

D. Tell us when you've sent your postcard by EDITING your original post. You can also let us know when you've rcvd a postcard by editing your original post.

As Always:

You will send one postcard and you will receive one postcard. The postcard can be store-bought or hand-made and can have any kind of picture on the front. We are an International group. Newbies are so very welcome!

Happy Reading,

I´m at lost -how can Isend a private message. I went to "messages" and pushed the "compose" and then tried to send a message to Jenny T. A..."

Try clicking on Jenny T name in this thread and it should bring you to her page. On her page if you click on “more” button (think it’s next to friend request) it should have a drop down which says “message” and you should be able to send her a message. Otherwise, I usually send a friend request to that person.

Hope this helps! Kelly
