TGIF is hosted by GReads! Her question this week is:
To be honest, I just don't see a place for it - it doesn't add anything to a book (in my opinion) and exposes our kids to things that they just don't need to be exposed to. I understand that this is day-to-day reality for many kids, but literature should not be one more place where they get it. I also happen to believe that there isn't a place for explicitness in adult literature either - some of the best stories and movies out there are as clean as can be, and I don't feel like a novel is made better just because it is racy. All just my opinion, but I will skip obscene part in movies and books - just not my style!
Next there is the Book Blogger Hop hosted by crazy-for-books.com, another great book blog to check out...her question this week is:
I absolutely do this...I read one Emily Giffin book last summer and went out and bought all that I could find - and I loved all of them! I also love Lois Lowry, so her books are always winners for me. Laurie Halse Anderson is another favorite with her Revolutionary War trilogy. I love finding an author I really like - and it is interesting to read a bunch by an author and see how different and alike each book is.
This week's question is not book related:
This question is very telling about the place in my life right now...on my playlist (and in my CD player in my car) are the following:
- Kid's All-Sing Along
- Duck, Duck, Goose - Book on Tape
- Green Eggs and Ham - Book on Tape
- George Strait (for those rare moments when the kids are NOT in the car)
