What is it about a good, thought-provoking book that works people up into a lather? Sometimes, the reason for restricting a book from certain audiences makes sense. I don't want my 9-year-old reading a book Herotica, nor do I want my 15-year-old to read The Kite Runner because of some of the content... for now.

But some books are banned for utterly ridiculous reasons. The Giver has been challenged because it's "too violent" and has "sexual content" WHAT? have they read the book? 'Cause I've read it twice and never found the part where Jonas and Fiona got busy down by the river... Maybe I got the edited version.

For whatever reason, good books get panned and GREAT books get challenged. LibraryThing has a group, Banned Books, dedicated to this issue.

Wikepedia also has a great list here, "
List of banned books" with the reasons for banning.
