Check out The lists of 'banned' books over the last 10 years here:
What do you think?
I'm quite surprised that some of these books are there.
I mean To Kill a Mockingbird is a book everyone should read. I read it in school when I was about 12, and it has stuck with me ever since and is now one of my all time favourite books.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker is on there too which is another great book.
And come on, twilight and Harry Potter! Why are these on the list?!
I have to say, some of them I haven't read so I can't comment. But this list has given me some incentive to read more of these 'banned' books and see for myself what's going on.
