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!
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…..
