[bksvol-discuss] Re: Challenged Books

Actually the Old challenged authors are on the list, but it is in the Top 
100 books, and the usual suspects are there including Mark Twain, and Louis 
Carroll, what could they object to in Alice in Wonderland I wonder?

Smile, some of them are obvious why, but others, I can't figure it out.

 Puppies are the joy at one end.
 Old dogs are the treasure at the other.

Fascinating!  Not one of the "old" banned authors is
on the list, but they are books for adults, and
probably the people who "contest" the books are more
worried about children--although Forever is for
adults, as I recall. Maybe these people are too young
to have even heard about Henry Miller, D. H. Lawrence,
and James Joyce; Memoirs of Fanny Hill; Memirs of
Hecate County.
