The #SpeakLoudly Donation Challenge


In the words of author Julie Kagawa:
In honor of Banned Books Week, and in response to the Wesley Scroggins debacle on Twitter and blogs across the country, I and several other bloggers are hosting the #SpeakLoudly Donation Challenge.

The challenge is simple: pick a book you own, or a stack of books, and donate them to your local library. OR buy a copy of a book (Speak, Slaughterhouse Five, and 20 Boy Summer are all good choices) and then donate it. Then post a blog saying you did it, and spread the word. Banned books, challenged books, non-banned or challenged books, it doesn't matter. I am donating two copies of The Iron King and The Iron Daughter myself. Let's get books on shelves and into reader's hands.

Let's celebrate the right to read what we want.
EFF YEAH! I'm definitely gonna do something like this, and let you guys know. And I strongly urge you to do the same. Let's spread our love of reading!

You can join the challenge by donating any book to anyone, and tweeting about it with the #SpeakLoudly hashtag and visiting SpeakLoudly.org.
