Banned Books Week Giveaway Win a Kindle

Welcome to the Banned book Celebration!!!  I will announce the winner of the Kindle Oct 3,2011!  Good Luck!  Please scroll way down for the entry form!


Welcome to the Banned Book Giveaway.  It is being hosted by the lovely http://iamareadernotawriter.blogspot.com/2011/09/banned-books-week-giveaway.html
and http://jenbigheart.blogspot.com/  Thanks ladies for the wonderful blog hop!  I am going to give one lucky winner a Kindle from Amazon.  For A great banned book , I suggest a book by William Faulkner ( Being a Mississippi girl, I felt I had to recommend a Faulkner book)

My banned book suggestion is As I Lay Dying (1932)

by William Faulkner
In 1986, Graves County, Kentucky, the school board banned this book about a poor white family in the midst of crisis, from its high school English reading list because of 7 passages which made reference to God or abortion and used curse words such as "bastard," "goddam," and "son of a bitch." None of the board members had actually read the book.
