Moving onto The Hunger Games. Dear Suzanne Collins, I didn't actually read this book but hunger isn't a game. Hunger is real. Loads of people face it every day. Like hippos. Poor, hungry, hungry hippos. I don't think kids should be exposed to any book that mocks those gentle creatures.
Harry Potter also makes my list of books I'd like to see banned. Not because they're about witches and wizards and not because their headmaster is a homosexual, but because of the blatant mistreatment of owls. Owls are not and should never be treated as someone's personal courier. For shame, JK.
I'd like to also add John Green's Looking for Alaska. It's above Canada. Anyone who can't find it shouldn't be writing books for children. Please go back to grade school, Mr. Green.
Finally I'd like to see Spanking Shakespeare by Jake Wizner banned on the grounds that all forms of corporal punishment are wrong and should not be tolerated. Especially against The Bard.
As you can see, we have a battle ahead of us, but one I believe we can win, and I won't stop until, these books--no, strike that--until ALL books are banned. Including my own.
