#BannedBooksWeek2019

Beloved | Toni Morrison

It‘s day seven of #bannedbooksweek2019 and I thought I‘d finish it with Beloved. The crimes that got this book challenged are slavery & violence. So I guess someone thought that the depiction of slavery is not positive enough? WTF?

It‘s day six of #bannedbooksweek2019. Today I thought I‘d go with two nonfiction books from my TBR. #InColdBlood has been challenged due to #violence, #sexualcontent, and #obscenelanguage. #NickelandDimed crimes are #drugs, #inaccurate, #offensivelanguage, #politicalviewpoint, and #religiousviewpoint . #standforthebanned

P.S. Why, yes! That is indeed my #bannedbooks mug from #theunemployedphilosophersguild. I love their bookish goodies. 😬😁😎

It‘s day four of #bannedbooksweek2019. This is a YA novel that I read for a reading challenge a few years ago. (I 💓 reading challenges because they do push me out of my reading comfort zone and that‘s a good thing!) This book has been challenged due to #offensivelanguage. 🙄🙄🙄.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I had no idea this one was banned! Beautiful photo 💗 2mo
Loreen It‘s surprising the books that get challenged these days. 2mo

In honor of Banned Books Week 2019 and ALA's valiant efforts to promote and protect our right to read ANY book we want!! No matter what...
