  1. I think it means being able to read anything that you want without getting in trouble or without consequences. I'm sure that there are places in this world where people aren't allowed to read certain books or even allowed to read. Sad 😞

  9. Well, there is another thing it can mean too - having the time to be able to read something I want and that isn't due for anything. So this is something that I think of at the end of the semesters during break! :)

  10. My gran got married at 14 because she was a girl from a good family. And girls from goos families don't leave the house and study in India at that time. Freedom to read means more than just reading storybooks to me. It means the right to education and the right to be equal to a man!

  11. What a great question. It makes me think of people who live in societies and places in the world where books have been banned or burned, like WWII Germany when Nazis burned books, etc. And the book Reading Loloita in Iran. It makes me happy to live in Canada of today, where I can read pretty much whatever I can get my hands on as I wish. And love my local library system.

  16. For me 'Freedom To Read' means the freedom to education for all, regardless of race, colour, gender or disability, the freedom to acquire knowledge and the freedom to voice or to put into words one's views without the fear of imprisonment, torture or death. I've been a member of Amnesty International and an active campaigner for human rights for years, and it puts me to shame how much we in the West take for granted.
