Book Blogger Hop: Banned Books

Book Blogger Hop
Hosted this week at: Soon Remembered Tales

This Week's Question:
 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:
Honestly I have no real opinion on banned books. I feel that there are some books that need to be kept in appropriate places in order to protect the minds of children but other than that I'm pretty chill. I actually don't know what books are actually considered "banned" but I doubt I've read many if any at all since I try to read mostly just Christian.

Well, I can agree that 50 Shades of Grey doesn't belong in a Christian bookstore...ever. I'm happy that although you don't like or read certain books/genres, you aren't against other people reading them.

After googling what the 100 top banned books were I found I had only read three of them, not because they are banned books, but because most of the banned books were not in genres I read.

Hi! I]m one of your followers. I really should be reading more Christian fiction, because I do love it! I read other genres, as well, since I have an eclectic blog.

On the topic of banned books, I agree with you -- children's (and teens's) minds should be protected. As for adults, there's no accounting for taste. At least they can make informed decisions about their reading material. Younger people are often ill-equipped to do so.

So I don't think books should be banned, but children and teens should not have easy access to books that may traumatize them, or compromise their developing ethical systems.

Thanks for sharing!! : )
