#2 When Reading is a privilege
New books are very expensive. So I really want Barbara Kingsolver's new book, DEMON COPPERHEAD which will come out on October 18th, 2022, but I can't get it because its expensive. For some odd reason I haven't really taken a liking to borrowing library books mainly because when I have books I want to make marks within the pages. E-books remind me of my dad and I don't want to my favorite activity to smell of my father. Audio-books, ugh, I need to see to read. I can't even stand watching TV to be honest, which will be a topic for another week. I am seriously thinking that books and reading are for privileged rather than something anyone can partake of. My son's school recently has book fair and one book he wanted cost 12.99 dollars. I am disappointed that I was unable to provide for him the book he wanted. My birthday was last week, and I think my son had more fun than I did. I had a few surprises from H-Mart as well as edible gift from my sister. But yeah, I guess that's all for last week. Also, we went to pumpkin farm today and we had a lot of fun. My son got a toy tank he wanted.

October 14: Can you write whatever you want? (Anna)
Can bloggers just write whatever they want?
I don't think bloggers can write whatever they want mainly because they might want to be respectful to works or publishers that decided to publish and gift us these works. If there is some discomfort they should mention it, but respectfully.
Or are there boundaries they should respect even on their own platform?
I definitely think there are boundaries they should respect because there are enough horror stories of how people were mean and disrespectful. Also as well, someone might find their blog and what will happen if they read disrespectful words? Job loss.
If a blogger is called out for something they post, are they obligated to respond?
This one is difficult to respond because there are various school of thoughts on that. Maybe not because it might escalate the situation or make it even worse would be my guess. At the same time, if its something innocent then I think yes. People respond differently to books, and what floats one's boat may sink it with one another.
