Book Bans: Personal Story

My niece is a great reader. (And a passionate bullet-journaler. She’s a total mini-me, it’s hilarious.) So once I bought a sweet children’s book for her on Amazon. Apparently, there was some similarity in the title, so instead Amazon sent me the most vicious, horrid pornographic novel. Extremely racist, too, from what I saw, although I obviously didn’t peruse the whole volume.

My blood boils when I think of what would have happened if I hadn’t snooped in the gift bag and presented it to the 8-year-old.

I don’t believe this book should be banned. Although Amazon should exercise greater care in processing book titles. I don’t think any book should be banned, period, end of story. But how is it OK to sell this truly disgusting garbage and not Dr Seuss’s wonderful books?

  1. Did Amazon conpensate you somehow for the mistake? Or are the consumers left without ability to receive what they requested / their money back?

    I bought several times on Amazon but they haven’t been mistaken yet.

    It’s an obvious Marxist tactic imo.
