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. 😉
