  •  OK, Giovanni's Room by Baldwin (8+ / 0-)

    I get why that would be banned but not Go Tell It On the Mountain.

    Don't see Nabokov's Lolita here; that would be a rather obvious omission.

    As for what I'm reading I stopped (temporarily) reading the 2st part of Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle, Quicksilver, and started reading The Brothers Karamazov.

    The second part of the Stephenson was moving a little too slowly, although I noticed that they pick back up with the Waterhouse/Newton/Leibniz storyline ein the 3rd book.

    In the meantime, I am really enjoying The Brothers Karamazov...I totally get why Dostovesky is an important author but Crime and Punishment and even Notes From the Underground were paced too slow...for some reason, I don't think that Karamozov is.
