Banned Book Week Giveaway
Banned...such an ugly, narrow-minded word when it comes to books, don't you think?
Reading over the frequently challenged book list at ala.org, I had to laugh at some of the challenges, cause they're my favorite books (The Hunger Games, To Kill A Mockingbird, Harry Potter).
Being completely honestly, I feel that if a parent or guardian doesn't want their child to read a certain book, that's their right, but they shouldn't force that restriction on other people and their children by completely banning the book. I'm not a parent, but I imagine that when I am, I'll make sure the books they read are age-appropriate until they become teenagers.
Anyhow, in honor of Banned Book Week I'm giving away a copy of The Absolutely True Diary of A Part-time Indian, which was challenged in 2010, to one lucky winner!
The Giveaway runs Sept. 24th to Oct. 1st. It's international.
Winner will be picked using random.org.
I'll email the winner Oct. 2nd and announce it as soon as he or she gets back to me.
You don't have to be a follower to enter, but having more followers makes me happy. :)
