I’m rather fond of banned books. I’ve always been a little contrary and if someone told me I shouldn’t do something, it only increased my interest in potentially doing whatever it was that was forbidden.
The best web information I found this year was the BuzzFeed quiz “How Scandalous is Your Reading?”
I scored a 42 out of 93. How about you?
Personally, I was pretty shocked at some of the books on that quiz. Shel Silverstein’s A Light in the Attic. Really? James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. I don’t understand.
The Outsiders by S.E.Hinton. Sure. And it’s my favorite book to hand to the reluctant 7th or 8th grade reader. It’s worked every time.
What’s your favorite banned book? How did you score on the quiz?
