Etiqueta bannedbooks

School board in Dixie Schools district in Florida is banning all books with profanity, cursing (that’s a redundancy, maybe board members should have paid more attention in English class) and “inappropriate content,” which is another way of saying “things we don’t like.” This is a violation of the intellectual freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution. Game on.

What would you do if this happened in your community? I suspect we are going to see MANY more cases like this in the months to come.

✨Yesterday I read an article that a school board in Biloxi (in the state I live in Mississippi) pulled To Kill A Mockingbird from their reading list because of its offensive racial language. This isn’t the first time they’ve pulled this book. ✨

✨✨I never got to read this book while I was in school. They added to the reading list after I left. And they are removing it again. Seriously. ✨✨

✨✨✨Aside from Harry Potter, what is your favorite banned book?✨✨✨

Curious to find out why. #BannedBooks
This award winning graphic novel is the top most challenged book in the US last year, after it with withdrawn from a school in Minnesota and was also challenged in a Florida school "because it includes LGBT characters, drug use and profanity, and it was considered sexually explicit with mature themes". This One Summer is a coming of age story and is beautifully illustrated in blue washed artwork and is undeserving of the censorship imposed upon it. I think parents maybe have no idea how much their teenagers actually know!
Day 17 of the  #booktoberbabes book challenge is banned books.

Really ironic that Of mice and men was one of the books banned because of the controversial topics back in the day. And even though it's available now it wasn't in the library. When I asked the supervisor said it's stolen alot lol

Some things to know:
•women are not allowed in libraries in Saudi Arabia •rights to education is not universal [I'm talking during K-12 years girls are not allowed to go to school, instead they have to stay home, 60% of girls\women are illiterate] •Intellectual freedom is not universal
•Right to privacy is not universal

Are you a fan of classics?
If so, what book would you recommend to someone who doesn’t normally read classics?
.
I am AWFUL at reading classics🙊 and another unpopular opinion, I HATE Daisy from The Great Gatsby. I know, I know😅 but I think this is the most gorgeous cover I have ever seen.
.
I have SO MANY tags to catch up on! So I’m going to do #top5malecharacters and I was tagged by @a.apsara23
• Remus Lupin
• Victor Vale
• Mr Kindly
• Hagrid
• Sazed (from Mistborn but I haven’t finished so hopefully that doesn’t change!)
These were in no particular order because WHO COULD DO THAT!?
.
Sorry I’ve been so absent lately! I promise I’ll get better at balancing the candle stuff and bookstagram.

Swipe to see the GORGEOUS candle from @nerdygirlcandleco 😍 it’s inspired by Tina from Bob’s Burgers!

When they only let you take 18 hours max, so you can't take Russian lit, but you're pecking away at the reading anyway #bannedbooks #russianliterature #leotolstoy #yevgenyzamyatin 💗💖📚✊️📚💖💗

#jayjaysconstantfaerytalesoctober is Cosmos Flower-a happy read. Almost every book I read brings happiness into my life in one form or another. Probably the happiest one I have in my pic today is Harry Potter. I simply adore this series! It makes me happy every time I read it! ❤️

2017 #BannedBooksWeek Submission Feature: "1984 is one of my favorite banned books. The irony is heavy with banning this book, of course. George Orwell's novel strongly warns against the dangers of censorship and the literal constraint of language, but that doesn't stop some people from trying to ban it. Parents in Florida challenged the book as being 'pro-communist,' which is a great example of why people should read the books they want to ban. On the other hand, actual communists must have read enough of it to figure out that 1984 was blasting communism, as it was banned in the USSR." @carolinamariereads

Stay tuned for the contest winners announcement!
