Today’s post is going to be a quick one. For some reason I can’t get WordPress to work on my desktop everytime I pull up the site it freezes so I am having to do this post on my iPhone and I really don’t like having to use my phone to do this but it is what it is.
So now to the reason why I am here. This week is banned book week. I am not going to act like I know a whole lot about this subject because I honestly don’t know much. I just really started getting back into reading this year and I have never heard of banned book week until well now. If I have read or heard anything about it in the past I didn’t pay to much attention to it. Catriona from Little Book Owl on YouTube is hosting the BannedBookathon. I originally wasn’t going to participate in this readathon because like I said I don’t know much about it. I didn’t know what books were banned but luckily Catriona left some links on her post and at the last minute I decide to participate. I was surprised at some of the books that were on this list.
So in honor of Banned Book week I am participating in this readathon and I have chosen three books to read. I also have one backup to read just in case I manage to finish the other three. Now to the books I choose to read…
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
I think I might have had to read this in high school but if I did I don’t remember it and I have been wanting to read it.
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou
I have never heard of this book before. I had heard some people mentioning it so I looked it up to see what it was about and decided to pick it up as well.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker This is another book that I unfortunately had never heard of until this week. Catriona is planning on reading this book as well and when she mentioned it I once again looked it up to see what it was about and decided to pick it up as well.
If I manage to get through all three of these books I have had a book in my TBR pile for a while now that I plan to read. It is My Sister’s Keeper. I have never read this book before but I have watched the movie and when I saw this was on the banned books list I was a little surprised.
Well that is all for today’s post guys. If you are participating in the BannedBookathon this week what are you planning on reading?
