As a writer of words I take Banned Books Week very seriously. I don’t believe any book should ever be banned. The readers will speak with their wallets and reading habits if a book is not to their taste. I love romance novels. Some people have called them mommy porn. I believe they have entertainment value. I believe in happily-ever-after. Romance is the celebration of finding that “one” true love. If you’ve found yours, you will recognize the struggle to find and keep them. If you’ve been unlucky in love, a romance novel can show you it can happen for anyone at anytime.

Many books have been on the Banned Book List. I’ve read most of them. Sometimes, just because they were on the list. 🙂

Read a book! Even better, read a Banned Book!!
