Banned Books Week Hop


A Big thanks to I Read Banned books and I am a Reader, Not a Writer for hosting this hop!  My choices in books may not be banned, but they are fun! There are some who would ban books dealing with witchcraft and wizards though. Two are for the upcoming Halloween season, I want to get them to you to enjoy before Halloween.  The Kindle books are books that I enjoyed when I read them, they are not as well know, but definitely worth reading.

My take on banning books.  I am against banning books.  However, I feel that if you are an elementary library, only books that are an elementary level should be on the shelves.  Public libraries have the obligation to have books on their shelves that are indiscriminate.  There should be something there for everyone.  I only keep books on the shelves of my home that I feel comfortable in letting my children read.  As a parent, I have an obligation to teach my children standards and then let them make their own choices.  I get to choose which books I will purchase though.  I firmly believe that every person gets to make their decisions based on their interests or beliefs and do the same thing with their family or personally that I am doing with my family.  Choice is a basic human right.

For this hop I will be giving away four packages.   One is International, two are to anyone who has a kindle application, and one to US addresses only.

We'll have the International package first:
I will be ordering this book from the Book Depository.  So, you must have an address to anywhere that they ship to.   Click here if you wonder if they ship to your country.  Click here for the blurb about the book.
