It’s the last day!

 banned books

It’s Banned Books Week! Unfortunately, it’s the last day of BBW and I am just now getting around to blogging about it. There are eight million and one banned books that are near and dear to my heart. Today when I was concocting this blog in my head I was trying to think of my favorite. I had a hard time because I can’t ever think of a favorite book because I have a ton. Anything I am reading, if I am enjoying it at all, becomes my current favorite. But, gun to my head, I’d have to say for sentimental reasons my favorite banned book is To Kill a Mockingbird. Probably because I remember picking it out of the Scholastic Book Club flyer in sixth grade and not having any clue what it was going to be about. I thought maybe a bird but I wasn’t sure. Of course, I loved it and have read it many times since then. Writing this makes me want to read it again. While I try to find my copy, please share  your favorite banned book.

  1. i blogged about this too. to kill a mockingbird is one of my all-time favourite books. i don’t have a particular favourite banned book, though. to me, i’m just glad that i can read all the books that i can read, but i hope banned books will truly be a thing of the past in the future.

    It has to be “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle (who, sadly, passed away very recently). Thanks for the link to the ALA list, as it’s always a shock to see what’s been added!
