List of banned books, according to the American Library Association:

http://www.ala.org...

Some of the reasons why the books were banned and/or burned are just plain funny:

"A filthy, trashy sex novel," in reference to A Separate Peace
"Pro-Communist" in reference to 1984
The Lord of the Rings was burned for being "satanic."

Yup.

(*Note, this is being put up because the ALA because it doesn't like banned books, either.)

It's not that bad...

"Challenged in Eden Valley, MN (1977) and temporarily banned due to words "damn" and "whore lady" used in the novel."
But not the racial slurs? LOL. I did hate that book though. Any author that writes in a southern drawl needs to be shot.

When I got to 1984 by George Orwell I was hoping for "Banned in North Korea (1953)."
