Banned Books Week Giveaway Hop!







Emiline's Thoughts on Banned Books:
I really like Lauren Myracle's books and some of them are banned.  It makes me feel sad when I think that I might not be able to read them.  I don't think it's okay to let other people decide what you can experience.

Marsh's Thoughts on Banned Books:
As a reader, I think no books should be banned.  Some of the books I have read are banned books.  Even if some books are not the right books for some people it doesn't mean no one else can read those books.  Hunger Games is a frequently banned book and is one of my favorites.  You can protect your kids from some books, but not other people's kids.  There is a book for everyone.  My point is-- banning books is wrong.  



For Banned Books Week Giveaway Hop we are offering one of our favorite books that was on the Banned Book List, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  We have three prizes for this hop:

Prize One:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
and a Mockingjay Pin

Prize Two:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
and a Hunger Games Journal

Prize Three:
The Adventures of Captain Underpants by Dav Pilkey,
Goosebumps Horrorland: Revenge of the Living Dummy by R.L. Stine,
and a collectible Hogwarts Bookmark


     To be eligible to win a prize you must become a public follower of this blog and leave a comment that includes your email on this post.  The giveaway ends on October 1st at midnight.  We will be announcing winners on October 2nd. (Unfortunately, this giveaway is limited to residents of the U.S.)
Oh Yeah, check out the links below for more great giveaways from other wonderful blogs.
Good Luck,
Marsh and Emiline

  3. Love it! You both do an awesome job! Just a hint... one of my secret books for my BBW hop is Lauren Myracle's, SHINE and it is signed! You might want to tell your mom. I haven't announced it on my blog yet.

    I am leaving Lexi's email address and entering the contest for her because she has not read The Hunger Games yet. I'll remind her to stop by and comment as well! :)
