  1. It means being able to be free with your words. There should never be a ban on speech, whether it's written or spoken.

  2. One of our teachers reads this aloud to her 8th graders. I am surprised a parent hasn't complained yet!

  3. It means being able to practice our right to freely read what we please without being judged by the person sitting next to us or around us. Its the Right of Freedom of Speech for the authors and the readers.

  10. Banned book week is bringing attention to something that should not be done. We should be encouraging not discouraging reading.

  11. I have always loved books. I believe that it up to the person or parent to decide what should or should not be read. I allow my children to read what they want within reason of course because I want to encourage them to read and have the same love of books as myself,

  12. To me BBW is about the freedom of thought and belief and being able to do what you want and read what you want.

  13. It means a chance for me to explore books that I haven't had the chance to explore yet and re-explore the ones I have.

  17. I work in an academic library and I love to promote BBW. I love to see the reaction from people when they find out that a book they love is considered bad or banned. I take that opportunity to educate them about the great freedom we have to be able to read whatever we want.

    Thanks for participating in the BBW hop!

  18. I think that BBW starts people talking about books and hopefully trying to end banning them. I don't think that anyone should be able to tell another person what they can or can not read, except a parent with THEIR underage child.

  19. To me, BBW raises awareness and - hopefully - causes people to think differently about banning/challenging books after reading about how others feel about the process. :)

    Thank you for the great article and giveaway!

  20. BBW should open eyes to people so everyone can make up their own minds on what they should be able to read... BBW gives everyone the chance to speak out against banning books...

  21. to me it means that people will see that its silly to ban books!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It means people can't handle different opinions even if its not harming anyone!

  23. I love banned books week. I love that people are coming together to acknowledge the people's right to read whatever we choose. I think it is great for people to ban together and assert their freedom to read.
