Some books are "banned" just in the public library has only so many dollars, and have to decide what they buy ".

Or conversely, you can go to the library and get a Satanic Bible, but it is not a real Bible. (What is not in this picture?)

I wonder who makes these lists. All books are in order. People need to get a life, and the U.S. SAY, CAN YOU READ THAT YOU AND NOT.

Some of my favorite books (including my all time favorite shows at last!) Included in this list. Do not believe these books to ban, or in a book at all for this problem. Book promote free thought, the promotion of ideas, and we grow as human beings. Persons who intend to prohibit single-minded and they are biased.

If someone really wanted a book they read in school assigned to forbid. In addition, if people do not like the topics in a book, they should be banned. An intelligent being, a reasonable person would not want to read independently from the book and then teach them why it is not accepted. That is how a reasonable person would act, but I think people are not banning these books an intelligent or rational thinker. People do not know why these books were written. Probably banned "Tom Sawyer" by the word "******". The word in the novel used by an ignorant racist. Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) was written to combat racism and represent the ignorant character as such. "Brave New World" sign against sex and drugs of today's society obsessed. "The Color Purple" is completely about overcoming oppression and a better person because of it. "To Kill a Mockingbird"! Are you kidding? One of the most important works of American literature forever! This book is most neededArias, of the American Anti-Racism always novels and a wonderful example of Southern literature. The only book on this list, which would be felt may be the ban on "The Anarchist Cookbook," which will kill by the suppliers of violence and ways to blow people and things. All other books, which should not not prevent the reading to someone. I can not believe how stupid people are there in a kind of power position in the United States. Believe me, I love this country is the largest in the world, but at some point we are heading in the ass so far that do stupid things, like banning pounds. You know who else to ban books? Nazis, communists and dictators. We have a good look at how things work in this country come the next election.
