No better way to end #bannedbooksweek yesterday than with this beauty here!

Such a beautifully written love letter to books and why they‘re important. 😍📚

I saw this on a display for #BannedBooksWeek at the Library and decided to take it home with me. Last year, I attended an onstage interview with the author at the University of Pennsylvania. She was impressive!

hermyknee Oh you‘re so lucky! I love Marjane Satrapi‘s books!!! 2mo
DivineDiana @hermyknee I felt that way! 🙂 2mo

I read/listened this one for #BannedBooksWeek. I found it melodramatic and frustrating. I usually like #ya books. 😕

Reagan-reads I felt the same. 2mo

This #BannedBooksWeek #litereads pick was Dilli Ki Sair (or, A Trip to Delhi in English) by Rashid Jahan. The story isn't a favourite of mine, but it's an interesting depiction of life in purdah in 1930s India, it makes a lot of good points in a short space, and it is a good example of a banned short story. Drop a comment to share your thoughts on the story. You can read my full review in the link below.

Martyn_J_Pass This concept of banned books is so alien to me, it‘s scary lol 2mo

My library has had a few rough months with protestors and city council shutting down things like drag queen story hour, an author visit by a trans YA author, and discontinuing public rentals of the meeting rooms. But the library staff keep trying. Several of the banned books on this display are LGBTQ books. #librarylove #bannedbooksweek

Cortg I love it! My library system is in the same boat. I wish some people would just let people read and participate in what they want.

Definitely a Mirror Read.
Me as a Teenager: "I just sat in my favorite corner of the library and read books until I had to leave. It was the only time I ever got any peace and quiet."
Me as a Adult: "Every person should be free to read whatever they want, whenever they want, and not have to explain to anyone else why we like it,"
To Remember: “Once you ban one book, somebody, somewhere, can find a reason to ban every book,”

This was also the exact reason my ex gave me for breaking up with me--JK! Happy #bannedbooksweek, the annual celebration of the freedom to read! 🔥📖🔥

“If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed.” ~ Benjamin Franklin

A loved stack of books for #bannedbooksweek - I didn‘t realize I had this many banned/challenged books on my shelf, stories I‘ve fallen in love with, made me think and couldn‘t imagine not being able to read.

DivineDiana I also own all of those books! I had no idea! 2mo
