Good morning from Minnesota. Day 2 of the Banned Book Week Already. GAH! How time flies… and I finished Gone With The Wind yesterday (more on that BANNED BOOK later).
We have some book lovers that want to share with you their thoughts on banned books. Be sure to check them out as well as yesterdays entries as well. Banned books are near and dear to my heart ad I think if you read the posts you will learn something fascinating about a book that you have quite possibly read. Didn’t know you were a bad banned book reader did you? Well…. you probably are.
Check out Janet at Writer’s Flow with I Read Banned Books And You Can You!
At Chaos Is A Friend Of Mine you can read an excellent review of the banned book Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers. I still need to read that one!
Debbie at The Friday Friends shares a personal banned book encounter and her enjoyment of the book The Changeling. (You also have a chance to win a pair of banned book socks!)
At Kay’s Reading Life you will get a first hand experience of what it is like to work at a Library and handling the Banned Book questions of patrons! She also features some pretty amazing banned books to read.
Melinda at MHDeanCollectibles tells us what the current top 10 banned books are AND there is also a link to a Benned Book Giveaway hop! Seriously? How can you pass that up?
At Sally Whitney shares the right to read and why students should have the right to read The Kite Runner and The Bluest Eye.
Lisa at Lit and Life talks about growing up with banned books.
All excellent posts – I read them myself and love love love the remarkable topics being discussed this year. Spend a little time with your COFFEE CUP and explore these posts. Educate yourself on our right to read.
I do hope you will check out their posts as someone this week will have a picture within their post and if you find that post and email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to tell me who’s post you found it on you will go into a special drawing for…
This mug will be shipped directly to one of our commenters on the Banned Book Post you find THIS picture on:
So that’s it for this morning. Set up for the Library’s fall book sale starts this morning and I am also setting the library window to banned book week as well. SO….. off I go!
WHAT Banned book are you reading this week?
p.s. I just realized this moment that I forgot to post It’s Monday What Are You Reading last night. My bad. Fell right out of my head. Next week then…..

Going to grab a cup of tea and read the posts!
I am off to read the posts! I totally loved banned books though I am pretty sure all of the books I read would be challenged LOL
I’m reading Pledged right now – I’m not sure it’s ever been banned but I know plenty of people would like it to be.
I almost forgot! IT’S THAT WEEK ❤
A fun week! That mug looks good, doesn’t it? And yes, I wondered where the It’s Monday post was…LOL.
I’ll be reading Forever, by Judy Blume, this week. Glad you enjoyed GWTW.
Banned Book Week snuck up on me, and my TBR is already so big that I’m not reading anything from that list. I’m trying to finish Dreams of Gods and Monsters (idk why but I’m struggling.) And I started a new audiobook today called Thornwood House. I have an hour drive to adn from work each day so should be through that in no time!
Thanks so much for stirring up interest around Banned Books again this year! I’m excited to be part of this important cause!
Thanks for hosting all the fun again this year, Sheila! I usually choose 2 banned books to read – one grown-up and one kids or YA. This year I read Persepolis and Looking for Alaska – both were amazing!
Have fun getting read for the library sale!
Thanks for this fun giveaway!
Hi, Sheila –
You are just way ahead of me in the morning! I posted my intro to Banned Books Week today:
Reviews of Persepolis and Looking for Alaska (both amazing!) coming up later this week –
Thanks again for hosting this event!
