I know several #littens have shared the news of this Missouri bill proposing holding funds from libraries and imprisoning librarians. This rep released a statement that confirmed his bigotry and attacked #DragQueen Story Hours. There is a petition at this link by the good people at #EveryLibrary. Please sign if you can. This has to be stopped. #Censorship #BannedBooks

goodbyefrancie @BookishMarginalia Have you seen this petition? 2d
goodbyefrancie @GingerAntics It isn't. The Constitution seems to get treated as optional these days. It's insane. 2d
GingerAntics Fair point. It seems optional everywhere...everyday. 🙄 2d

I don‘t read as many MG novels as I should but these ones were amazing! And not a one was fantasy! My top 6 Middle Grade books of 2019.

This book is EXTREMELY similar in plot to Property of the Rebel Librarian. But I think this book was written first and it is also better. It‘s a love letter to librarians and the freedom to read. I am not a huge fan of “banned book week” but this would be a great read for it! Loved all the book reference and it made me want to read a few of the books.

#unpopularopinion but I didn‘t love this one 😬. There were things about it I liked. Such as Francie‘s love of reading and the description of realizing that she could read. But I think my main issue was with the family dynamic. I‘ve read a lot of books lately with terrible parents and alcoholism. So maybe it‘s a case of timing and I‘d enjoy it more another time.

greenreads If it's the timing, will you read this sometime again then? 1mo
Soubhiville @greenreads not likely. Too many books in the world that I haven‘t read. And my rereads are books I adored the first time. 1mo

Clara is ready for her last year of high school. But on the 1st day she finds out the school is banning a bunch of books. When she is given the books to put in her little libraries, Clara decides she is going to make her own underground library at school. So many people are checking out the books. She is so excited that it is working out until a tragedy strikes. Was it her fault for loaning out the banned books?
