Banned Book Socks

These socks showcase once-banned titles on one sock and bold ?censored? strike-throughs on the other.

$10.00

Free Thinking

The Great Gatsby, Lord of the Flies, To Kill a Mockingbird--they all might be well-loved classics, but they have something else in common: they were all banned books at one point. Featuring the previously-banned titles on one sock and bold crossed out "censoring" on the other, this literary set is perfect for the book lover with a taste for breaking the rules. Made in China.

                  Bought these to go with the Novel Tea set. What could be better? Nice cup of Novel Tea and curl up in your banned book socks to read.
