Support your favorite banned book.

My local bookstore is selling the American Library Association's "Banned Books" bracelets. There's an adult version featuring Howl, Alice in Wonderland, The Color Purple, and three other titles for about $20, and an adult-sized kids' version with The Adventures of Captain Underpants, King and King, To Kill a Mockingbird and three additional titles for about $18. Both are cute, although the picture quality for the covers is low.

Note: If you haven't already done so, have a talk about book censorship with any young readers in your household--you'd be surprised at how many kids and teens have no idea that some of their favorite books are controversial subjects. (Your local library should have a book devoted entirely to challenged and banned books in their reference section.)
