A propos de moi
Please Note: This project is no longer active but we have decided to let the account remain as it does provide useful information. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact PhoenixTerran.

BannedBooksLibrary is a LTer Project Library that will contain books that were and are banned, challenged, or otherwise censored throughout the world. It's just getting up and started--if you would like to participate in the project, and receive a password to this account, please leave a comment on PhoenixTerran's profile. For more information, please check out this talk thread and the BannedBooksLibrary Group.

Note on LibraryThing policy: LibraryThing is designed for personal and organizational catalogs--books owned, read or wanted by a person or a clearly defined group of people. "List-making" accounts are generally forbidden. For a number of reasons, the Banned Books Library was given special permission to continue as a "catalog" of banned and challenged books. For further information on this decision, please see the conversation with Tim Spalding (starting at message 34) regarding this account.
