Okay guys so today is the last day of epicreads Banned Book Week

Red Epic Reads Badge 

Here’s what it is:  

BANNED VS. CHALLENGED
Challenged Books: Books that people are trying to remove or restrict from schools, libraries, ect.
Banned Books: If a group of people challenge a book and they win, then the book is banned and removed from public spaces like schools, libraries, ect.

WHY DOES A BOOK GET CHALLENGED?
The books that are challenged usually fall into three offending categories:
1. The book is considered to be too sexualy explicit 
2. The book has offensive language
3. The book is unsuited for the age group

WHY IS THIS BAD?
Ummm…..restricting what kids and teens can read? Yeah, we’d say that’s a problem.
