Banned Books Giveaway Hop


The Banned Books Week is celebrated during the last week of September. Because of this I read Banned Books and I'm a Reader not a Writer are hosting a Banned Books Week Hop from 24.09. - 1.10.2011. The aim is to give away books which are banned somewhere or were challenged because of what their topic is!
When I first heard about the Banned Book Week I was shocked! I wasn't even aware that books are still challenge. Come on we are living in the 21st century! Shouldn't we have learned by now? I know that not all topics are appropriate for all ages. But my parents never ever restricted what I read and I'm glad about it. I'm sure I read books which I didn't understand completely because I wasn't mature enough. But reading them didn't do any harm either. I can remember that I read my first historical romance when I was 13 or 14 years old (I think it was Heather Graham and yes there were sex scenes in it!) and I was alright afterwards and didn't became a slut either. Though I have to say if I would have read The Hunger Games with 14 years I most likely would have gotten terrible nightmares and this book is PG13.  It may be a very european point of view (and liberal) but I don't think anyone should restrict what anyone reads. And honestly while growing up I never heard of any book being forbidden in my home country and definitely not at school.
Therefore let people read what they want!  (I don't want to offend anyone that's just my personal view!)

I'm giving away one challenged book, which can be chosen out of the shown books.
Rules:
1. There will be 1 winner who will win 1 book.
2. The book will be ordered and send with the Book Depository. Therefore make sure that TBD delivers to your country!
3. The giveaway is international.

Books to choose from (Unbelievably all of this were/are challenged!):


Just sign in to the Rafflecopter tool below and don't forget to visit the other blogs taking part in the blog hop!
