I am a book person. I do not deny it. If someone were to pass a law to ban all bad books, which would probably include Harry Potter, I woulddie! That would be the worst day of my life, because some people have different ideas of what a "bad" book looks like. They would most definitelybanHarry Potter, The Hunger Games, and other really good reads that lots of people enjoy. I'd say that Freedom of Speech is very important here, because everyone has a right to speak, even if I may not entirely agree with their opinion. I put my foot down at that. I guess it's ok with books that shouldn't ever even be printed in the first place, but then, people like reading them too, so it really isn't fair either way. Books should just stay. Books shouldn't be banned. Even though I'm not a real big fan of inappropriate books and "bad" books, but if good books should stay, it's only fair that the bad ones stay too, right? Some people may not agree with my point of view, but I think it's more fair. Just a recap, books should stay, because if you throw out or burn a book, it's like doing that to a human being. Would you rip apart a living soul? If not, then books are like the same thing. It's like destroying a living, breathing soul. Books are alive in a special way, especially from my perspective. So if you mess with a book, you mess with ME.
Another way it’s mean is the fact that you’re banning the imagination of another person and you are limiting the possibilities. Authors and writers, like me, put their imaginations, dreams, hopes and lives into their stories and if the books that are written are banned, your practically telling the person who wrote those books that they are not aloud to do that sort of thing. I put my life’s experiences into the books I write, and if my books were banned ( if they were published) then I would feel bad because some one has said that my books were bad and that’s like telling that person that they are bad. Just a little bit of my opinion as a writer.
