Banned Books Week Kick-Off & Giveaway

This week our post will be themed around banned/challenged books. Our wonderful team of reviewers has written up a post about banned books that they love. As always, we believe in the freedom to read what we choose; it's the parent’s job to decide what is appropriate for their child and to get involved - use that book to open up a conversation about a tough subject.  


We are celebrating our freedom to read by joining in the banned book hop!

We will be giving away ....


One PB copy of any book of the 2010 top ten list  - it's your choiceWe will be ordering from the book depository - if they ship to your country, you can enter.

  5. Want to thank you for your post and the giveaway.

    The American Library Association website for banned/challenged books--short list for classics only--includes 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. The first four were required reading in my school days.

    A commenter on Murder She Writes, however, took me aback by mentioning the Bible, which of course is banned in some places.
