Sitter och läser om olika bokbål då jag funderar över att göra en uppsats som handlar om bränning av böcker vilket har gett mig mycket intressant fakta som den nedanför.



United States, 2001

Harry Potter books were a "flashpoint" for book burners in the U.S. in 2001. One of those burnings was in the Harvest Assembly of God Church in Pennsylvania. "We got some people mad at us, but it's good to have publicity," said Rev. George Bender.


Besides the Potterseries by J.K. Rowling, books by actress Shirley MacLaine and psychic Edgar Cayce were also torched.

  1. Intressant det där med att bränna böcker. Tänk vad mycket litteratur som har försvunnit från jordens yta på det sättet. Tänk om det i framtiden blir så att typ Hunger Games blir klassat som en farlig bok och skulle brännas? Haha kan se det framför mig hur en hel generation hoppar in i elden för att rädda dem :P
