Ok Ok… that was a little cheesy but I am trying to have a little fun with the word banned this week. 😛 I noticed that Natalie over at Mindful Musings has a wonderful post for banned and challenged books as well as links to other posts and giveaways around this topic.
Yesterdays trip to Barnes and Noble in St. Cloud was a lot of fun and I chatted with quite a few Minnesota authors. Many of them will be at the Twin Cities Book Festival in October that we are doing the book blogger meet up at, so if you are in the area and able to join us, let me know. I have information I can send you.
Of course… book stores and me mix together well and I did leave with several…. err…… ok, more than several books.
Today Navy Son will be hanging out for the football game and for the entire day! That will be a lot of fun! He has been so busy since he got home and trying to get around to see everyone that this will be our first full day to hang out and catch up. Of course during the game, while making shrimp chowder, I fully plan to read. 😀
Why was J K Rowlings Harry Potter Series, banned?
JK Rowling, author of the wildly popular Harry Potter series, is sometimes referred to as the writer Americans would most like to see banned. According to librarian scientists, there were more than 3,000 attempts to have her books removed from U.S. libraries between 2000 and 2005 alone. Fanatics across the nation still claim that Rowling’s books promote the occult and Satanism.
