  1. Little House on the Prairie a banned book!!! It’s such a wholesome book. I read it as a child and have re-read it with my daughter. I’m off to check out the posts. Have fun at the library!

  2. Where is The Rogue Scholar’s giveaway of BRAVE NEW WORLD? There’s a long review but no giveaeway in sight.

  3. I am constantly amazed at the books that I read and loved in childhood that have been banned at one time or another. Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn…and now Little House on the Prairie?

    I’m going to check the posts today to see the thoughts from the bloggers…thanks!

  4. Day 5 already? Loving these banned book posts, who would have thought that what is ultimately the result of some narrow minded people would open my eyes to not only so many interesting books but also to so many fascinating people.

    • Right Tracy – all they see is what they personally do not like about the book and therefore – no one should like the book or be allowed to read it and make up their own mind about it. :)

  5. I ditto what laurelrainsnow said above: Dr. Seuss and Little House on the Prairie?? But I have been enjoying reading all the thoughts and reviews. Added some new bloggers as well as new books to my tbr pile!! Thanks!

  6. I am having the most fun reading all of these BBW posts! I’m learning about books I’ve never heard of AND meeting new to me bloggers. Yay!

  7. I am always amazed at what books are banned. Little House on the Prairie?!? I never knew!

  8. So many banned books and some of them, seriously, make no sense!

    • Thats the fun part of banned book week… there are books out there that I have no desire to read and I know they are not to my liking… but some of these, seriously? I have read some awesome books this week. I need to thank Banned Books week :)

  9. It’s been a fun week seeing so many people’s thoughts on book banning and finding new books for my already huge TBR list. :) Right now I’m reading IT by Stephen King.

  10. It’s been a bit of a shock to see some of the books that have been banned.
