Banned Books Week Hop

Welcome to my stop in this giveaway hop. I echo my statement from last year's Banned Books Week:  "This topic is a touchy one for me. I can understand the out cry of some people to censor a book in the name of indecency, so I'm not especially sure I wouldn't vote to challenge a book given the right situation. I certainly would voice my concerns if highly sexual or violent books fall in the hands of my three young kids under school supervision for example. But generally to politcally ban a book would not be my solution to the indifference. As I understand it, books are not rated as in movies but categorized by age appropriateness. So it would make sense for a parent to screen for books that are appropriate for their children's age and moral values. Those that doesn't meet the criterias will just not make it in their children's hands or book shelves ..that's what I do."
