As a reader, banning books makes me sick to my stomach. Not only is it a violation of our First Admendment rights, it is robbing our world of so many wonderful books and authors. Many of the books listed on the complilations of banned books were books that I enjoyed over and over again as a young child. I'm thankful to the fact that my parents never censored anything I read, and that they allowed me to form my own opinions and to create my own views on the books around me.
To celebrate Banned Books Week, I'm going to take this week to read a few of my favorite books that I read growing up that have appeared on various banned books lists. I want to review these books and get their information out there so that all readers can share in these wonderful titles!!
