#TopTenTuesday for #BannedBookWeek

It’s Tuesday and many book bloggers are participating in the fun Top Ten Tuesday post. I thought I would put a little twist on it this week by posting the <b>Top Ten Banned Books for 2017</b>. It is astounding to me that in the 21st century there still are banned or challenged books. Sadly, nearly all of the books are challenged due to race and sex. I’m unsure why parents feel the need to shelter children from knowing about people who might be different from oneself but it is still perfectly acceptable to subject those same children to copious amounts of violence on television, in books and, especially, in video games. Perhaps if we as a people concerned ourselves more about gratuitous violence harming our children, the world would not be in the shape it is in today.

Save the World and read a @BannedBook this week.
