"Each year the (ALA) American Library Association's Office Of Intellectual Freedom records hundreds of attempts by individuals and groups to have books removed from library shelves and classrooms. According to this at least 42 of the Radcliffe Publishing Course Top 100 Novels Of The 20th Century have been the target of ban attempts."
I had no idea that such a list existed but then I'm not totally surprised by it either. After all books like the Harry Potter series and The Da Vinci Code to name but two have been criticised and people encouraged not to read them. To me this could be like a red rag to a bull, make enough fuss about something and lots of people will find themselves wanting to find out just what all the fuss is all about.
