Tomorrow the Banned Books Week will start. 'Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read.' It's an American initiative. I think both children and adults should be able to read what they like and hope that there will be less restricted reading. A lot of the books on the banned book lists are beautiful stories and I'm glad those books are still available. It would be devastating if the list would be something that's being used everywhere. Some of the books that are on it are all time personal favorites, stories I want everyone to have access to.
Fahrenheit 451 is a fantastic story about a world where all books are banned. It ached my heart to read it, but it also made me realize how lucky we are that we have access to so many books. It's a book that brought me gratitude and I loved its philosophical character. Books make my life richer and I'm happy that I'm able to experience the joy reading brings. I hope free reading will never cease to exist and that more people will be able to be added to the list of those who read freely every day.
Banned Books Week makes me think about what it would be like if someone would restrict my reading. Most of the books that have been listed are valuable stories to me that all influenced my life in a positive way and it would devastate me if someone would take these experiences and possible future experiences away. I hope with all my heart that one day everyone in the world will feel and be truly free to read what they want.
