Good morning. Crazy day already. I came home at 1:30 am after seeing Wicked in the theater in the cities. Now I am staring at a table full of things to pack (or not) and for the life of me can not find my digital camera that has been in the same place for years. GAH. I leave this afternoon for our cabin and then off to Ely tomorrow to join the rest of the group to go on our canoe and camping trip. I feel….
Ok – enough of that for now though… lets talk banned books because we are around the corner and hitting the finish line of the event today and tomorrow. Today….
After seeing Wicked last night (banned book by the way!), I was thrilled to see that Erin from Quixotic Magpie wrote a post with a witch theme, The Witch Of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare. I loved the post and the crazy reasons this book was banned. Erin is also doing a giveaway!
Tracy at Uncharted Parent talks about book banning and The Absolutely True Diary Of A Part Time Indian. She has some good thoughts about banning.
Florinda (love her!!!!) at the 3 R’s Blog shares her thoughts on censorship. Well worth the read.
Suey at It’s All About The Books writes on the book Thirteen Reasons Why ( a book I really enjoyed!)
Julia at Diary of A Book Nerd posted a great review of Looking For Alaska and has a giveaway going too! 😀
I hope you check out these great posts today and I really hope that as this weekend is approaching fast that you pick up a banned book from the list and dig in to something good!
I will posts pics of Wicked in the morning. I have a lot to get moving on this morning. 😀 Have a great day!

Good job of keeping those post titles lively! lol
Enjoy your weekend.
Happy weekend to you, Sheila!
Thanks for the chance to be part of this event again this year, Sheila!
Sheila, I think I had a publishing problem with Word Press and my post didn’t come up until now! I wrote a review of Looking For Alaska by John Green, one of the top ten Banned Books of 2012. I’ve also included a giveaway and a link to Book Journey- sorry my post wasn’t up earlier today. I hope you have a great trip and thanks for bringing awareness to this worthy cause. http://www.juliatomiak.com/2013/09/banned-book-review-looking-for-alaska/
Good for you to work with the library… perhaps I should add this to my volunteer projects!
My blog is up, finally! I’m sorry for the delay: http://pseudonymousfictionwriter.blogspot.com/2013/09/beloved-books-on-banning-fahrenheit-451.html
Thanks so much for all the links! Have a great trip, I’m looking forward to pictures when you get back so I hope you find your camera
I love how much you are doing for Banned Book Week. I mentioned you in my site (for the post that will go tomorrow) as a link. Great work!
Having read Wicked I’d love to see it at the theatre as I’d love to know how they’d adapt it for the stage.
