Morning Meanderings… Final to Banned Book Week and 6 Months

3a

This is the post that should have been yesterday however with the book sale… my overextended schedule this past week and my inability to sleep through the night – I did not get it posted.  I did not forget – just had to let it go for a bit. 🙂

Soooooo.  with that…

Here is the final day of banned book week post.  Let me just say, what a week.  I am bummed it hit during our Fall Book Sale as I had no time to really dig into the books or the posts.  Thank goodness for all of you who grabbed the banned book week banner and waved it high.  Here are the final day thoughts on banned book week from wonderful readers:

Laurel at An Interior Journey shares her thoughts on the banned book, Forever by Judy Blume I was a huge Judy Blume fan growing up!

Kai at A Fiction State of Mind talks about the trending Magna books and their tendency to be banned as well as her thoughts on the book The Color Of Earth by Kim Dong Hwa.

 

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 comment on the post) and email me (journeythroughbooks@gmail.com) 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:

**Important note**  A few of you have emailed me with your responses of where you found the above picture and something I did not anticipate is that some of the blog posts this weeks used the above logo in their posts which is not the giveaway one.  Look closely at the picture – it will be the one above which has a frame and my website on it.  Sorry about any confusion – I will be more creative next year 🙂

 

Thank you to all who participated in banned book week!  Please check out my posts of earlier this week and catch up on the great reads and giveaways.  I will announce our winner for the Banned Book Cup tonight with Its Monday What Are You Reading so you still have time to look for the image hiding in one of the banned book week posts as described above.

 

Real quick – here is what has come in the house in the past two weeks as bookish!  I am not going to link them as I usually do as I have so much going on today just trying to catch up on a weeks worth of not being around.  Laundry and canning are on the itinerary as well as white chicken chili, and I need a new audio 🙂  Later today watch for my thoughts on the Banned Book Gone With The Wind.  It is also 6 months today since Justin’s accident.  Unbelievable.  It has been the hardest 6 months of my life and I can not imagine what the next 6 months will hold.  I am indeed a broken mess of a person just trying to find a new normal that I can accept.  Thank you as always for being a part of my life – even those who I only know from your words here… thank you.

  1. Sorry I missed out on Banned Book Week. I had hoped to get my book finished and reviewed but a week of taking my baby dog to the vet and then having to have her put to sleep was just too overwhelming, especially since I’m still grieving over the loss of my husband. Many hugs to you. I pray life gets easier.

  2. Life has a way of taking over and interrupting whatever we might have planned! Take care, and enjoy those books. I want a copy of After You and All the Stars in the Heavens…and I LOVED X.

    Sheila, I again want to thank you for allowing me to guest post AND embellishing my post with pictures. You see, sermons don’t have them LOL. for Vicki: sorry for your losses ((hug))) and fir Laurel, After You is all over Bookshop Café FB group….

  4. I am continuously surprised tosee the authors that some one banned. What is wrong with Sue Grafton. I have read all her books except the last one and I don’t recall anything.s

  5. I love the coffee mug. It always amazes me what books make the banned list and why…crazy.

  6. I continue to grieve with you as you mark the 6 months since your beloved Justin passed. You are always in my prayers.

  7. Sheila, you and your family are in my prayers.
    Enjoy your new books.That coffee mug is a wonderful “excuse” to drink coffee. Have a relaxing Sunday.

  8. As always, take care of you and your family first. We fellow blogger ( your tribe of fellow book lovers) understand about life and it’s ability to rear up and sometimes get ugly. Be kind to yourself! Take it one day at a time. This too shall pass.

    Hey Sheila,
