“For 25 years, libraries and bookstores nationwide have been celebrating the freedom to read during Banned Books Week… Now Google has joined the party. At google.com/bannedbooks , you can use Google Book Search to explore some of the best novels of the 20th century which have been challenged or banned. And while libraries and bookstores around the country celebrate the 25th anniversary of Banned Books Week with special readings, displays, and more, you just might end up with a visit to your local library or bookstore and an old favorite or a new banned book in hand.”
The site provides browsing access to 42 challenged titles.
Hats off to Leslie Burger (who's the guest author for the blog post on Google) for finding a way to "play" with the big guys! :)
