Welcome to the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by - Soon Remembered Tales.
This week's question is...
Banned Books Week ends on the 6th. How do you feel about books being challenged to be banned from libraries or schools? Have you read any banned books?
My feeling about books being challenged or banned is this...I think we all should make our own choices about what we will read or won't read. I censor my own reading material, and if I start to read something that I am uncomfortable reading, I STOP and don't read anymore of the book. I don't censor your reading so I appreciate nobody censoring my reading. My friends know what I won't read, however when they choose to read those books do I care? No! Sometimes we even discuss them.
To find out just which books were banned books I had to google about them, since I didn't know which books were banned. After reviewing the list, I found I had read three banned books.
1. Gone With the Wind.
2. The Great Gatsby.
3. To Kill a Mockingbird.
I'm not sure if I ever read the books about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, but we all know their stories anyway.
Most of the books listed as banned I didn't read because they are not in the genres I read, not because I think they should be banned.
