I've decided to read two books. I've never actually read The Satanic Verses so that will be book Numero Uno. I also have Mailer's The Naked and the Dead in my to-read pile so I'll read that, too. Since I'm still only half done with American Psycho, if I polish that off in September then that would make three.

My first reading challenge: Banned Books
There's a first time for everything. I usually don't consider doing challenges; the subject might not be something I'm interested in and I have so many books to read (and am so mercurial in my reading habits) that it gets hard to work in a challenge.
I jumped at this one: BiblioBrat is hosting a Banned Books Challenge during the month of September. This challenge is really simple: read at least one book that has been challenged/banned (for a list you can visit the UCSD page or the ALA). Read at least one book that has been challenged/banned.....I can do that! And I get to flaunt my "I read banned books" buttons! Challenging books makes me grumpy so I'm all for a challenge that highlights infringements on the individual's right to the Freedom to Read.
Who's with me on this challenge?
