Good morning – happy Sunday… all of that 🙂 It has been a wonderful weekend away at our cabin with my friend Wendy – watching movies, exploring the area… waiting for the roofer dude. Now home and prepping for this amazing week (the fall book sale is at the Library!) and I had books and audio come in this week:
You can see there are two books there with the word Christmas in them as well as a book called Winter Falls. Eep! I am so not ready for cold and snow! 🙂
I am super giddy excited about today because it is the official kick off to Banned Books Week which you know I LOVE and take a huge part in every year. I will have guest posts going on here, linking up other Banned Book Week posts each day, writing about banned books and banned book reviews as well as the occasional giveaway. YOU will not want to miss out on a post – this is going to be FUN.
AND It is not too late for you to check out about this fun week and join in!
Each year during this week I only read banned books. So much fun and I read such great books – classics, and more. I think this week is so important to be educated on what constitutes a banned/challenged book that I have also decided to make it a tab at the top of Book Journey so you can read all my banned book reviews through the years! I think you may be surprised by what books are considered banned. In fact, this morning you can read about a personal banned book experience that happened right here in my home town this year over at the amazing Krystal’s Books Are My Thing. She as well will be having a lot of fun things happening for banned books week so please stop over and see what she is doing as well.
It drives me absolutely batty that I can not find an all-inclusive banned books list that I can link too, but here is one and perhaps one of these days I will start my own banned books list as I run across them.
I hope you plan to read a banned book this week (at least one!) in honor of banned books week! They are not hard to find and they do not have to be long (Charlotte’s Web, Little Red Riding Hood, The Giving Tree, Winnie The Pooh, Harriet The Spy, Alice In Wonderland, Where The Wild Things Are, The Lorax, Green Eggs and Ham, The Wizard Of Oz…)
All comments this week will go on banned books posts (including this one) will go into a drawing at the end of the week for you choice of:
$10.00 towards a Banned book of your choice.
So what are you waiting for? Jump in and join the banned!
