In my tradition of impromptu ReadaThings (and because the announcement over in the Banned Books group isn't getting much response :) I suggest that people try to read a Banned or Challenged book this week and post something about it here. No sign up required.
Alternatively, pop over to http://www.librarything.com/topic/98779
and chat about it in the Banned Books group . . .
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry and Lord of the Flies.
Both of these were books that I had not previously read. I had been avoiding Lord of the Flies for years since I knew what the book was about, and the concept didn't interest me. Fortunately, my husband convinced me that I should read it. While I did not "enjoy" the story, I do believe that it is a well written, thoughtful, and important work.
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, was a lot more enjoyable, even if it was also about another distasteful subject, racism. I will gladly read the other books in the Long Family series.
