Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week. BBW stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints for all who wish to read and access them.

So, Banned Books Week is this week. To celebrate, I think we should all go and read at least one book from the Most Challenged lists and thumb our noses at those who want to put shackles on our brains. screw that.
