Banned Books Week!
It's Banned Books Week again. I love this week because it draws attention to all of the great books that have been banned or challenged. I'm very much a "live and let live" kind of person so I really do not get the whole banning books thing. Books shouldn't always agree with what we already think or already know. I think books become more important when they challenge the feelings that we already have!
There are so many good books out there that have been challenged or banned but one of my very favorites is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Oh the irony of banning a book about banning books! This is a fabulous book and if you haven't read it, you must!!! You absolutely must! I read this book for the first time in high school and it's definitely one that sticks with you. It's one that makes you think!
What's your favorite banned or challenged book?
