Wednesday! I feel…..
good and going too many different directions for sure. Why did banned book week have to fall in such a busy week? Board meetings, helping friends, dinner out, movies, and the book sale. I think next year I need to plan a week at the cabin so I can just read what I want to read…
and really…. isn’t that what banned book week is all about? Being allowed to read what we want to read?
Today I add another group of fellow passionate Banned Book Bloggers to the mix. Please check out these amazing posts:
Stormi at Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My! Posted about censorship with some great quotes!
Jenna from Lost Generation Reader has a giveaway for a banned book of your choice!
Vicki at Reading At The Beach has a review of the banned book, The Call Of The Wild by Jack London
Felicia at The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog talks about Book Banning In Texas as well as her super cool library and banned books AND a super cool giveaway too!
Sue at Book by Book shares her thoughts on Book Banning and what she is reading this week – great thoughts on banning!
Holly At Gun In Act One (what a fun blog name!) writes a passionate post about the ridiculousness of trying to protect our kids from reading about drugs, alcohol, etc.. when the outcome of this use in the books is truly a reason to not do any of the above! Seriously – check out this fun and meaningful post!
Ya hoo! Let’s give it up for our great supporters of Banned Books! Ya’ all complete me :). And do not forget to check out those who have posted earlier this week. There are fun posts and giveaways and I would not want you to miss out. 🙂
And since Felicia posted pics of her libraries Banned Books window… I figured I would post mine as well. This is the window currently set up at the library. Note that Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men is front and Center… a personal attack on that one right in our town – more on that later today. 😉
Have you picked up a banned book yet this week? If not… are you sure? Chances are you have read a banned/challenged book this year.
*Note: Commenting on any of my banned book related posts this week will enter you into my giveaway. (one entry per relevant comment)
