For Christmas….His Dark Materials boxed set
Today’s recommendation for Christmas gifts is…..well, I was going to start with any book about the history of censorship because I’m getting increasingly angry with the all nonsense around The Golden Compass novel and how it’s encouraging atheism. Rubbish. Don’t censor books or movies. AbeBooks doesn’t censor books – any book that can be legally sold is available through AbeBooks. We let the reader make the choice and usually you need to read stuff to make an informed decision any way….so don’t censor books and don’t censor movies based on books.
So my real recommendation is a boxed set of His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. Yes, read these books and then decide if they are evil. Plus you could read these books over the Christmas (Christian) holidays – oh the irony!
