Bonus Books

While the primary purpose of the Banned Book Brigade is to read and review commonly banned and challenged books, I will occasionally stray from this mission and read books that are not featured on “The List.” These books will be known as ‘Bonus Books’ and simply reflect titles that, for one reason or another, I want to read. This page will serve as a ledger for these Bonus Books, in an attempt to continue meticulously tracking my literary history since this blog’s inception.
