Banned Books Week Hop - Giveaway


As I look over the list of the Frequently Challenged Books of the 21st Century, I notice that I have a lot of these books on my own bookshelves. It is hard for me to imagine that other readers would not have the same opportunity to read these stories. 

I've personally never had to experience a limitation to the books I've had access to and am thankful that I've always had the chance to make choose the books I want to read whenever I want to read them.


Thanks to I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and I Read Banned Books for hosting this giveaway hop and helping bring awareness to challenged books. I'm happy to participate and offer a gift card so that readers can have the opportunity to choose their own book. There are 3 entries possible: one free entry, one for following me on Twitter, and one for commenting about which challenged book you will get if you are the winner.

Giveaway Rules
Must be at least 16 yrs or older
