    The excuse that people use to ban books are so lame! “violence, rape, racism etc?” Then how about we ban the evening news and all newspapers since I read/hear about all of those issues daily!

    Banning these sort of books should not be allowed for they allow kids or teens to imagine, to go to new places, places only stories can bring. Why should we take this away, especially the hard work the authors had but on these stories? Its easy to take away for they were never part of making this book possible, they didnt have to go threw the hard process of making a story, i think we should re think of this,……

    The Catcher and the Rye is a good book and should not be banned since there isn’t anything wrong with it.

    i can’t believe they are banning “To Kill a Mocking Bird” i love this book and i believe this is uncalled for. even though it talks about rape, racism and loss off innocence, this is very true now in days. society doesn’t want books that have true life occurrences but we all know that this happens whether we like it or not. i think schools should have books that children can relate to. and what about the first amendment, did we already forget the right of freedom of speech? you can’t ban books that speak the truth just because you don’t like it, you may say it’s Anti-Christian but it is reality.

    to ban books is unconstitutional. because of this other people cant let out any comments on how he or she is living and on how they are seeing life today.to me being in high school is good and all but to elimanate what really is the cause of what things are really happening in society today is plain wrong. i dont agree with this at all.

    i do understand how THE COLOR PURPLE is banned because it is graphic but still it is a very meaningful book…if others would like to read this book then i think they should….it doesn’t matter what the people say as long as some one is learning from it……

    Is it just me or is it ironic that most books on this “banned” list are now required reading in most schools. Maybe it’s time for a more current list.

    The Malleus Maledicarum should be on here. It was banned from the world and the only copy left (original) is locked in the basement of a museum in England.

      There are surely several original copies (what is an original copy at all – in an era before copyright) left, since it was printed countless times, even after the church banned official use. It was never rare or lost and today it’s neither difficult nor expensive to find a new edition.
