HAPPY FRIDAY, EVERYONE!
Banned Books Week ends on the 6th. How do you feel about books being challenged to be banned from libraries or schools? Have you read any banned books?
My answer is divided. I don't think books should be banned from the general public. I think that infringes on rights. Whatever an adult wants to read, they should be able to do so.
However, I do think there are books that should be banned from schools. Just as there are movies that aren't appropriate for younger viewers, there are books that are not appropriate for younger readers. And I feel VERY strongly about these books being required reading for classes.
I am very conservative on this issue. As a parent, I keep a close eye on what my children watch and read. There will be time enough when they are grown for them to read these books if they so choose. Until then, it is my job to guide them.
Honestly, I have to admit, that I don't even know what books are on the banned list. I was thinking the other day about looking it up. Maybe I'll do that now :)
