Banned Books Week Hop (Giveaway)



I don't believe in banning books (or anything at all). I believe that we are capable of thinking for ourselves and we are able (and have the right) to choose what we want to read/see/think/believe.

The Banned Books Week is basically a week where readers decide to defend their right to read whatever they want. It's the perfect week to decide four yourself it you want to read read that book some people is tying to challenge or ban...
Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week. BBW stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints for all who wish to read and access them. More information about the Banned Books Week here.
I'm sure there is a lot to say about this topic. But I think if all can be resumed with this question: Are you the yellow eyed robot or the blue eyed robot?

Giveaway: One person will win 10$ to buy a banned book from Amazon or The Book Depository. It's open to everyone and ends 10/1.

In order to be eligible you have to leave a comment about a banned book you want to read, and fill out the form below.

If you're not sure about which books are being challenge, here is a list.
