omahalibrary "The Giving Tree" is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

bookpress My next entry for #bannedbooks is no other than The Bible. One of the most remarkable books to me. Published in about 2600 languages and available to more than 90% of the worlds population. Did you know more than a million Bibles are distributed each week? Did you also know it is still banned in some countries like North Korea? From being banned in certain languages to being burnt many years ago, this Book remains prominent in many bookshelves as well as many hearts regardless of it all. Thank you @theliteratepassion for this tag! Hopefully I finish all the tags I have to do very soon. Enjoy your weekend everybody!!! 2d

bookpress Bigoted Francoise is doing all she can to stop her daughter the lovely Osmonde from marrying enormously wealthy Saul de Goldschild. Why? Simply because Saul is Jewish. But Francoises bosom friend Georges Sarre is researching into Judaism and his surprising discoveries reveal that if Osmonde can't wed someone with Jewish blood, there may very well be no one in the entire Western world whom she can marry... The lovely @theliteratepassion tagged me to do #bannedbooks and since this novel by One of France's most controversial satirists was tagged "the novel that outraged France", I thought it fitting for the tag. I paired it with Chanel's 'Coco Noir' for obvious ironic reasons. It is Such a powerful fragrance that women of all racial backgrounds seem to agree on it as being a lovely accompaniment to the classic 'Chanel Mademoiselle'. There is little doubt in my mind that both mothers of the couple in love ,despite whatever form of loathing they may have had for each other, would still have agreed with this perfume as being one of their favorite(had it been available in their time,of course)

That being said, I need to add that this book was a difficult read. The writer was blatantly anything but objective. That upset me and automatically switched me from an objective reader to a judgmental and subjective one.At a point he came off as too preachy,making the reading experience far less pleasurable. In my opinion he tried too hard to make the book shock its readers so that made it lose its appeal. That was very disappointing because the plot had so much potential. If I were to grade it, I'd give it 2.5/5.
