Banned Books Week 24th September – 30th September 2017

Don’t forget it’s Banned Books Week! I’m currently reading Anne Frank’s Diary as my banned book for this week and it also helps me complete a task of the Read Harder Book Challenge! Who knew Anne Frank was banned! It’s really interesting looking into which books have been considering banworthy!

I disagree about banning a book! I mean who has the right to tell me what I can read and not read? That’s up to an individual to decide, depending on the book itself!

Pfffftttt to banning books! Go out and read what you want everyone and celebrate our right to read :)

Feel free to check out the official website Banned Books Week
