I want to meet this person and give them a hug. What kind of school bans Books? Schools are supposed to motivate people to read, to achieve that you don't ban books. You should have the freedom to read whatever you want.
If you choose to see books just as words on paper, you have a closed mind & meager imagination. We open minded creative people see books as adventures, as other worlds that one can enter to escape from reality. Books go a lot deeper than just words on pap
