l don’t think books should be banned. I think everyone should self censor the books they read. In the case of schools I do think parents should be allowed to decide which books on the curriculum their children read.

I am doing book reviews on three books on the banned book list this week, if you would like to visit.

Absolutely not! It is about choice and you are able to have that choice whether to read it or not. If it is in a currculum and you are not too keen on your child reading it, speak to the teacher and find out why it was chosen and then make a decision if you would want your child to read it or not.

No,if we ban books then what’s next? We could ban a lot of things and be a communist country.

No…it’s a very slippery slope. People have the freedom to write books and I have the freedom to choose what I want to read.

Certainly not! People need to take responsibility for themselves and their children.
