  •  I think there's a difference between "banned" (2+ / 0-)

    and age appropriate. I secretly read The Happy Hooker when I was about 15. Not age appropriate, lol!

    •  I agree, but a lg number of the "banned" books (0+ / 0-)

      on the ALA list were placed in that category because someone complained they were not age appropriate.  

      I find this very misleading, and think the ALA shouldn't be counting those.  (Of course, I don't think they should be putting any books on the Banned Books list just because someone protested them, but only if they were truly banned in some way).
