Here is another list that I have ran across. Its a list of 50 books that have been banned for various reasons. Which ones have you read? Should they be banned? I've read 22 out of the 50 so I have a few to go. I think that we should all be able to make the choice for ourselves whether or not we should read these or any books but that's only my opinion for what its worth.
