100 Challenged Books

I just finished putting all 100 entries from the frequently challenged books list into the new Banned Books Project. It took a little longer than I expected, because I wanted to verify all the links. I had to come up with a few new ones. But now there’s a nice, searchable spot to find out all you ever wanted to know about the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990-2000.

So, that’s it. I’m done (ha ha). It’s your turn. Find me some links. Dig up some news stories. Write me an essay. I’ll be waiting at the bar. Reading a banned book, of course.

    Holy smokes. Dedication to the cause, or OCD?

    (Seriously, nice work, commish!)

    Excellent – Sollie, my man, you’ve outdone yourself this time. Maybe you should include something about the Book Crossing thing that I sent you? Release some of this dangerous literature into the wild.

    Thankfully, I own nearly all of the books on the list (even the stuff on gay parenting AND Stephen King) so I’m feeling all literate and controversial now. Hell, I owe everything I am today to Judy Blume!

    On second thought, maybe her stuff *should* be kept out of the hands of impressionable children…

    When I say that “I owe everything I am today to Judy Blume” I am, of course, referring to my illustrious career as a flenser.

    (Jaysus, could I have made a more obscure reference? Fifty points to whoever gets *that* one.)

    I found this by chance through SEB – The Banned Books Project.
