It's Banned Books Week

It's Banned Books Week. Pick a book on Google's page that you haven't read, and read it this week.

Many of those books I read in high school, for class, bless you well-funded suburban Massachusetts school system!

The other day at coffee, my coworkers and I discussed the mentality that leads people to think that banning books might be a reasonable response to... well, anything. We took turns reading parts of the wikipedia list of banned books. When we got to the reason why Black Beauty was once banned, we declared a victor in the Stupidest Reason to Ban contest. (Though since it's wikipedia, I'm not entirely sure I believe it.)
