• 100 Banned Books (1-10)

    Here it is! This is the first of a ten-part series, detailing just exactly what kind of filth we’re putting into libraries these days. Enjoy.

    Please, check out the purpose of this project at http://solonor.com/bannedbooks.php before you send me e-mail on how much of a bigoted book burner I am.

    Oh, and when Aden finishes reading and reviewing all 100 books, I’ll be adding more mini-reviews…of course, that shouldn’t stop anyone else from writing one…

    TITLE: Scary Stories (series)

    Plot Summary: Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and its follow-ups are all about ghosts and urban legends and things that go bump in the night. They are designed to be read aloud, in the dark, to your friends at a campfire…just before you try to go to sleep!
    Complaints: Violence, unsuited to age group, occult themes.
    A complaint from the school district in Campbell County, Wyo., said the books made kids believe “ghosts are actually possible.” Another said, children shouldn’t be “scared by materials they read in school.”

    Kids will see pain and suffering even worse on t.v.They will also see violence and sex worse on t.v.Kids should chose what books they read.My school has a list of books that were banned and she brought them home to me.I read Fahrenheit 451.It was great and it was banned for some moral issue!

    People should be able to read what ever they want to. However smaller children need to be able to understand the difference between reality and fiction. They need to know the moriality of the different books. This is why I think books such as Harry Potter are fine when you look at them as what they are, fiction. More of the more mature themed books are fine for high school or even younger if the child can comprehend it.

    I know in middleschool we read Fahrenheit 451 and I thought it was a great book. It made an excellent point as to what happens when you censor.
