To celebrate Banned Books week, The Guardian is asking readers to send a picture of a banned or censored book on their shelves and to say why they like it. If you fancy sending a picture, here’s the link
Celebrating the freedom to read, the American Library Association’s Banned Books Week launches on 22 September 2013.
From Madame Bovary to Of Mice and Men and from Huckleberry Finn to Captain Underpants – why have they earned a place in your hearts and on your shelves? Not sure if you own any? Take a look at Wikipedia’s page on books banned by governments.
If possible, please show your book in situ, e.g. on your bookshelf, or in your hands. And all pictures must be your own. The Guardian will publish the best contributions in a gallery on the Guardian site.
