Banned Book Socks

$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.

I bought these socks along with the library card ones for two librarian friends. One sock has the list of banned books printed on it, and the other one has them all marked out with a fat magic marker. Mismatched socks are all the rage, but these are especially cool since either ankle starts a conversation and advertises Uncommon Goods as a unique gift location. I bought both pair because I couldn't choose, and m librarian friends can't decide which pair to wear!

The names of the banned books were so obscured that the fun of the idea was gone

      Comments about UncommonGoods Banned Book Socks:

      I wish the packaging had the sock w the book titles exposed rather than the other sock's design...When unwrapped during a group meeting it would have been immediately obvious and the sock pkg would not have to have been opened right then
      to share/display.
