Banned Books Week 2020 ~ 27-9 to 3-10

Morning all!

Censorship is a dead end, Banned Books Week, Banned Books, Special Book Week, Reading, Reading = Freedom, Book

Welcome to the Banned Books Week for 2020! I decided on participating again! My country still doesn’t ban or challenge books (thank the heavens for that) but I do want to participate in this week because I think banning books is just silly/stupid/dumb. Quite often the reasons for why a book is banned is either for LGBT content, magic, or due to race. sighs People…

I wasn’t sure if I would participate fully in this week as, like I said last year, it is just so hard to find RECENT books. All the lists are all about books from years ago, or are the same books year after year. In the end I did find a couple of books. Thanks to Twitter.

  1. I’ve never heard of Banned Books Week. How intriguing! I don’t know whether or not there are banned books where I live – but I don’t think so. I can’t imagine why there would be banned books in the first place, unless there was something truly terrible in them!

    1. Until I started my blog I also never heard of it, it is quite interesting indeed, and I am glad that people are taking a stand against it, as banning/challening books just happens too often in some countries around the world (especially in America it seems). I also don’t see why anyone would ban books, it just seems unnatural and weird. Often when reading the reasons why a book is banned/challenged, I am just rolling my eyes and shaking my head.
