52 Book Challenge - Week 18

And now for a reading challenge that challenges not just your reading ability, but also "The Man":

18. A previously banned book

Who banned it? Why? Was it banned by a school principal because it encouraged witchcraft (Harry Potter)? Was it banned by the Nazis because it painted Germans in a poor light (All Quiet on the Western Front)? Was it banned by national censors because the anthropomorphic animals freaked them out (Alice in Wonderland)?

Need help finding books that have been banned or "challenged" for this particular adventure? Wikipedia has a few lists, as does London Libraries and Goodreads. You can also find a rather large list through Austlii.

And you will be shocked - positively shocked - to know that we have several previously banned books in our collection. Why, we've even reviewed a few of them already...

Have you missed out on hearing about the 52 Book Challenge? Catch up here.
