Naughty-Bad Banned Books Week

Naughty-Bad Banned Books Week

The last week of September is Banned Books Week.Where am I going on Wednesday? To the library, of course. A confirmed bibliophile, I simply love the printed word. It may be a dangerous pretense, but I simply love to read and write.

More than trinkets, which time may dissolve, I adore books. I do not mention this in jest, but in altogether earnestness.

Did you know . . .

Many classic literary works – and current bestsellers – were once blacklisted or banned? Government officials, school boards, ideological organizations and others poured gasoline on books they deemed unfavorable and burned them.

Whether you realize it or not, you may have read some of these previous taboo titles. CTRL-click here to read “Celebrate Banned Books Week by Reading.” The free online article includes a listing of popular literary classics that were banned in the past for a variety of reasons.

You may find some of your favorite books on the once-banned titles list.

Express your inner bookworm during Banned Books Week. What a wonderful way to rebel and feed your intellect at the same time,

  1. You did a nice job incorporating the 3ww words while telling everyone about banned books week. I can remember when books were burned and I think that's awful. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice day.

  2. Nice reminder post! It seems that when books are banned they become more popular.

  3. Hello fellow bibliophile. Have you visited
    ? It's an incredible site.

    Yes, I am familiar with banned books week. Yes, I have read many of them. I, too, live in the library and I currently run a community library I set up at a local non-profit.

    And I like how you used this week's prompt. Please visit my blog. You'll find a link to my book shelf.

  4. I have read quite a lot from the banned books.

    Fine detailing

  5. No dangerous pretenses are ever seen in the library. I somehow wonder when it became "pretentious" to read and "elitist" to be really smart. Both in a bad way! Hooray for Banned Books Week.

    Thank you.


  6. Thank you for these sites. As someone new to this end of the web, I'm enjoying posting in blogs. Oh, and cheers to banned books week.
