Banned Books Week – Banned Books I’ve Read

This week (September 24 – October 1) is Banned Books Week, in which we highlight the misguided efforts by some to save the world from F bombs, boy wizards, and (*shudder*) independent thinking. People who usually want to ban books also lie awake at night in a cold sweat worried that someone somewhere is having fun.

So, in the spirit of Banned Books Week, and to rub these people’s nose in it, here’s a list of frequently challenged books I’ve read over the years:

  • The entire Harry Potter series
  • The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
  • To Kill a Mockingbird
  • Slaughterhouse 5
  • Fahrenheit 451
  • Catcher in the Rye
  • Cujo
  • A Light in the Attic
  • Carrie
  • The Dead Zone
  • The Joy of Sex
