    Wasn't Catcher In the Rye a banned book at one point?

    The Lottery was brilliant for its time.

    Brave New World annoys me. It's mentioned so much as classic literature of a political nature. I was so disappointed by it. I think its one of the most overrated books of all-time.

    Books that were banned in schools (at least at one time).

    I might go out on a limb that if a work of literature has not been banned (or otherwise seen as threatening) to some group's way of thinking, then it hardly merits reading at all.

    Do you really want to read anything that is not challenging on some level or another?

    I think challenging depends on the individual.
    for myself, this was quite difficult on the first few shots:

    I pretty much used our school's ban list as a required reading list. Dangerous thinker am I.

    Oh and hey, not that he's banned, but I wouldn't want my mother to read just about anything by John Updike, even though I really enjoy his work .

    They used to tell students in my middle school not to bring *** magazines and porn to school. It never seemed to stop anyone. I don't think they had prohibitions on any other reading subjects.

    I never understand this banning stuff!

    I like my literature with epic disasters! I love floods and fire raining from the skies. I like wars, mayhem, revenge, pastoral scenes, advice, greed, avarice, and adulterty in my books! Incest, ****, mutilation, thievery, betrayal, murder, and all sorts of bad stuff are what I read! Yep all that exciting stuff!

    I especially love books where the protagonist dies horribly at the hands of evil guys!



    Do you suppose anyone will be banning this anytime soon! #1 best seller of all time!

    Don't ban books! Give people choices as to what they will read!! My .02 cents!
