How would you define book discrimination?
Book discrimination is a distinction between books where some people set apart the ones they think are not good enough for them, or for others, to read.
How do you feel about it?
I don’t think discriminating books should be practiced. Actually, discriminating anything is not an act of fair-mindedness. Setting aside the so-called “worse-qualified” books will benefit no one because every book has its peculiarity and special characteristics which make a book not worse than the others.
What do you think is the cause of book discrimination?
I read an article a few years back. It’s about banning classic novels in the US. I think one thing that causes book discrimination is the unpopularity or the date a certain book was published. For instance, a classic novel, although some people find it entertaining and a good one to read, a lot of people nowadays still say that it has a complex story and profound words which they could not understand well. And the tendency is that they abolish the idea that it might be an interesting and worth read.
What would you do against it?
I think the best thing I could do is to read the novels myself, and suggest them to others. I may or may not find them any more better than the books I’ve read or will read, but I won’t judge them as to they are worth read or not. Analyze them, instead of judging or criticizing. For me there’s a big difference.

More people should read To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee because well it gives lessons about discrimination and injustice and how they are being practiced today even by our government.
