Banned by whom? I've read a lot of those books and many of them were for school.

it's a list maintained by the ALA, and these are the 100 most frequently challenged books

Lord of the Flies, Flowers for Algernon, To Kill a Mockingbird, Ordinary People, and Where's Waldo? Are these people high?

Oh yeah...Huck Finn? and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings? Are they high...btw "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" was the inaugural poem at Bill Clinton's first inauguration.

What's amusing is that most of the books on this list that I've read, I read on assignment in high school.
