Yeah, a lot of those books are true classics, like Mice and Men, and Lord of the Flies. Mice and Men is too depressing for me,, but why would they bann it, it's a classic, aren't those supposed to be read?

Cool! I just noticed that one of the books I submitted is on this list. Makes me feel like I'm truly going against the grain. <smile>. It was On my Honor by Marion Dane Bauer. It's truly a depressing little book, but I can't see why it's banned.Allison----- Original Message ----- From: "Carrie Karnos" <ckarnos@xxxxxxxxx>To: <bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Monday, October 01, 2007 7:46 AMSubject: [bksvol-discuss] Status of 100 most banned or challenged books 1990-2000And while we're at it, let's show how many books in this list are in the Bookshare collection. Once again, this list is from the ALA (http://www.ala.org). Out of the 100 books listed here, Bookshare has 46 in excellent condition, 14 in good condition, none in fair condition, and the remaining 40 are not in the collection. So we have 60% of this list! I'd love for all of them to be in the collection! (Well, some will never be in, like Where's Waldo, which has no text to speak of.)Thanks to Maithe for posting the original list, Carrie e 1.
