Banned Books Week

This is absurdly late, but it's Banned Books Week. So why not choose one of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books and subvert yourself?

For my part, I'm reading Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi. It's about a group of women in Tehran, Iran, who gathered in secret to read forbidden Western classics. With Banned Books Week leading into the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, it seemed doubly relevant.
