Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop (US ends 7/9)


Welcome to the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop


Today we are giving away Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo (signed!)

Darkness never dies. 
Hunted across the True Sea, haunted by the lives she took on the Fold, Alina must try to make a life with Mal in an unfamiliar land. She finds starting new is not easy while keeping her identity as the Sun Summoner a secret. She can’t outrun her past or her destiny for long. 
The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.

  3. I think freedom to read means that reading should be viewed personally not publicly. What I mean by that is people should be able to read what they personally feel is okay for them to read. No one should be force to read something they do not want to read. like *cough* high school assignments * cough* lol okay I actually never had to read a book for an assignment I got lucky but now I love being able to read anything whenever I want :)


    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Freedom in reading is being able to choose what I want to read. Too many times in history, books have been burned because someone says that they shouldn't be read.

  5. To me, Freedom to read means I can choose what I want. No banning books (NO changing my Mark Twain books lol), Also I can read when I want, how i want. (Within reason-obviously I cannot read for fun while being paid to do a job and reading and driving is always a bad idea). This means that I can read books on religion, race, politics, etc without being punished, condemned, etc. Freedom to read is also respecting differences.

  9. Freedom to Read means to me being able to read whatever you want, in particular the Bible and religious books and literature. Even today in some countries it is against the law or banned to read religious literature! Thank God, for the Great USA!

  14. Personally, I think freedom to read is basically that: the freedom to read whatever I want. It can be something scandalous, controversial, or completely appropriate. As long as it's what I want to read, I have the right to read it! :)

  42. Freedom to read means that I may read whatever books I choose to. It means that of I find a book that makes my heart beat faster and my palms get sweaty then I can read it. It means that if I want to get lost in a book and disappear from the the real world, then I can. Freedom to read means that no one has the right to ban me from reading they only have the right to encourage more of it. Freedom to read means that I may read when I choose to and that being forced to read a book I do not like is wrong. Freedom to read also means that if the horrible day comes in which I decide I do not wish to read anymore, then I do not have to, but I'm welcome to come back if I ever wish to.

  46. 'Freedom to read' means exactly what it says! You can read whatever, whenever, wherever - no restrictions. For adults, that is. Minors probably won't have the freedom to read New Adult Fiction if their parents have anything to say about it! :-) Thank you for joining the hop!!

  47. I think that freedom is the ability to think, speak, believe, and act however we want (within reason - obviously crime is not acceptable). This also gives us the ability to read what we want, which is a great thing to be thankful for! Thanks for the giveaway!!
