Banned Books Week



Today begins Banned Books week. To celebrate I’m re-reading a frequently banned book, Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck. I chose it because:

1. I like it.
2. I haven’t read it for a long time.
3. It’s short, and will be easy to read in what will be a very busy week for me.

For more information on Banned Books Week (sponsored by the American Library Association) check out this website.

  1. I love banned books.

    And honestly in the long run banned books outsell many other books usually.

    Because people always want to read what’s naughty.

  2. That books get banned really disturbs me.

    I won’t name certain places in the world because I don’t feel like being controversial at the moment, but their media is highly controlled, highly religious, people’s minds are completely controlled, no freedom of personal thought and development; it is so sad.

    I hope the US does not go too far in that direction. I know we do it too (control media with religious and political and financial slants) because when I travel, I hear very different news in other countries.

    Mice and Men is one of those required readings I still haven’t read. Naughty me. Tell me how you like it.
