Banned Books Week

Edit: The Hairpin has a great article on Things to Ban Instead of Commonly Banned Books

I feel like a bad librarian for not getting to this until now, but it's still Banned Books Week until October 6! The ALA (American Library Association) has a variety of resources on banned and challenged books. My personal favorite is probably the list of frequently challenged books by year. In 2011, the list included The Hunger Games trilogy, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, and the ttyl; ttfn; l8r, g8r series.

My personal favorite frequently banned/challenged books are probably And Tango Makes Three (sooo cute) and Slaughterhouse Five (which is about the horror of war, so don't read it if you're having a bad day). What are yours?
