In Defense of Banned Books: There's No Such Thing as a Bad Book

This summer, I had the chance to participate in the ALA Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out. I chose to read a selection from Fifty Shades of Grey, because I believe that no one should have to defend their reading tastes, and while there may poorly written books, there is no such thing as a bad book as long as someone out there enjoys reading it.

This is so very true. So long as a book resonates with a reader, it can't be labeled as bad or unworthy. The world would be deprived of many jewels if novels had to reach a consensus.
