How can I find a book without profanity?
Novel Book Ratings is a great review website. It has a search engine to find the different books that have been reviewed. You can search by category, by author or title. They rate profanity, violence and sexual content.

- What age is the book aimed at? Sometimes a book’s target age group is obvious but broad.
- Educational value.
- Messages and role models.
- Violence, sex, and language.
- Drinking, drugs and smoking.

What is a clean book?
For some reason, calling romance and Young Adult books “clean” has come into fashion. In the romance world, it means books without on-the-page sex. In YA, it usually refers to books without cursing, sex, drugs, and alcohol. (Once again, no one cares about violence.)
Is clean Reader app still available?
The app itself, however, is still available for download, and readers can upload their own books into it for “cleaning.”
Is all the light we Cannot see clean?
This is a novel written for the adult market, but it is surprisingly “clean”: Minimal language, sex, and violence (although they are present, they are fairly tame compared to much teen fiction!). The protagonists are teenagers themselves through much of the book, making it accessible to teens.
How do you clean books?
Wipe the books with rubbing alcohol – 70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol is what I recommend. My rule of thumb: If it’s GLOSSY then you can wipe it with alcohol to clean the surface. This includes most board books and their pages. Most children’s books and some other books have glossy covers that can be wiped down.
What is a medieval book of hours?
Manuscripts known as “books of hours” were among the most widely produced and used during the Middle Ages. These decorated prayer books not only structured time for their readers (over a day, a year, and a lifetime) but their creation reveals an increasing demand for private and personalized Christian devotion.
Are books rated for content?
There’s no book content rating system like there is for movies and television shows (which doesn’t bother me, since those are so subjective anyway), but I have two ways that I like to quickly check the content of a book before I hand it over to my girls or pick it up myself. The first is Common Sense Media.

Why are cozy mysteries popular?
Today’s cozy mysteries are popular because readers feel connected to the characters who seem like someone they would want to have as a friend. The situations are never overly done and all is usually neatly tied up by book’s end. The popularity of mystery shows no sign of retiring.
Does Grisham use profanity?
I tried to think of current harder-boiled writers I have read that don’t have profanity or use so little that I miss it. My short list includes John Grisham, Dean Koontz (gory yes but blue no), and Sue Grafton. This is what passes for cussing in a Grafton’s K Is For Killer: I drank my beer, heart thumping.
