Banned Books Challenge

Untitled

This year, I’ll be participating in the Banned Books Challenge.  Why?  Because books should never be banned!

“No harm ever came from reading a book….”

heeheehee  (side note: that has to be one of my favorite lines from The Mummy.)  Now don’t be silly, that was just a movie.  Besides, that was more about reading books out-loud, which let’s face it, is super annoying. :p

But seriously, books should never be banned.  Books have a beautiful power – to inform you, educate you, entertain you, open your mind/eyes/heart, transport you to new worlds, and show you what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes.  No one, other than you, should be allowed to tell you what you can or cannot read.  And it is for this reason, that I’ll be participating in the 2015 Banned Books Challenge.

So, what do you say, do you want to read some banned books with me?  You can sign up for the banned books challenge or check out the ALA’s site on frequently challenged books, but only if you’re brave enough. 😉

  1. I’m always bemused by the Harry Potter books being banned. I am not surprised that so many great books are banned I mean looking at some of the powerful books that provoke thought is always a bad thing in the eyes of a government as we may wish to become educated. I like to pretend I am subversive by furtively sneaking peeks at 1984 like I live in an old Soviet bloc country. I need to get out more.
