  1. Wait, they've put The Pearl on the banned books list? I read that when I was, like, 13 or 14! Its an amazing book!

  2. I just can't get over the "That book…haunts my dreams" in regards to Scary Stories. Truly a messed up, yet oh-so entertaining book. I agree, and excellent video for Banned Books Week.

  3. Wow, talk about misinformed. But, hey, I guess this is America and we don't need to worry about freedom, since it's unlimited. And it's no good discussing why classic nor current books have been banned. As a parent, I think I'll go storm my school with other parents and get the book with the incidental gay character tossed out! Score parents! Well intentioned but misguided and dangerous when they become a mob with an agenda. Kids, btw, are a lot smarter than we give them credit for.

  4. The ALA Banned Book Week is nothing but propaganda intended to intimidate parents from doing their job. Basically they are telling parents to shut up and let them decide what is appropriate for your child. If you dare question their decisions, you are a BOOK BANNER! Parents have the right to be concerned about what kind of materials are made available to their children. These books aren't being banned. If a parent wants their child to have a particular book, go get it someplace else! America

  5. "you've never read it?" "…no…"

    that response, right there, is why there are so many banned books. well, that, and people who are FAR too touchy.
