BANNED BOOKS WEEK

It’s here! It’s here! BANNED BOOKS WEEK is finally here!

A great big THANK YOU to Kathy from I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Jen from I Read Banned Books for hosting this week’s Banned Book Hop.

I don’t know about you, but when I was a teenager if I heard ‘banned book’, I was itching to get it my hands on it. Many of my favorite reads have made their way onto the banned books list at one point or another.  Some have been on the list more than once. To check out if some of your favorites have ever found their way into controversy, just click on over to the ALA’s list of frequently challenged books.

During this week I hope you will stop by and check out some of my other posts about banned books!

Ok, now on to the giveaway…

    Not entering giveaway. Posted on Murder She Writes but reposting where I can, to say thank you for raising this issue.

    Went to American Library Association website for list of banned/challenged books.

    Happy to say, I’ve read most of the classics, or consciously chose not to read a few, but was floored to see To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee; 1984, by George Orwell; A Farewell to Arms and For Whom the Bell Tolls, by Ernest Hemingway; Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell; and Sophie’s Choice, by William Styron, to name a few on the short list.

    A commenter there pointed out that the Bible often is banned.

    It is amazing what books make the list, how often they make it and the reasons that they find their way on there. I love the quote that Jen Bigheart has on her blog over at I Read Banned Books,
    “There is nothing like a banned book to turn a teenager into a devoted reader” – Malcolm Jones

    I couldn’t agree more!

Here’s the link if you want to watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3t7NSe4WYoY&list=UUuqDMDUQwTwvILSIth5k3sg&index=1&feature=plcp

    Thanks so much again Cici! Love your blog! :)

    Ahh! Oh my gosh, how embarrassing. I said MockingJAY instead of MockingBIRD in my previous comment. Hunger Games on the mind I guess haha, the trailer was good!
