Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read | Banned & Challenged Books
I will not get a chance to post this next week, so here’s my 2 cents:
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can and cannot read.
Censorship is NOT okay in a free society.
If a book offends you, don’t read the damn thing.
But please, don’t tell me what I can and cannot read, because is it none of your dang business. I will read what I like, when I like.
And personally, I feel that if you are going to restrict what your children read, then you’ve never spent any time in a schoolyard, playground, or other areas where children congregate.
When I was a child, if my parents told me I could not do something it automatically became the one thing I MUST do.
But again, that’s my two cents.
Celebrate Banned Books Week, by reading (or rereading) a book on the Banned books list.
I’ve decided to finally read “Fifty Shades of Grey” this week and next.
Because that’s my right!
