Yes these books are currently banned from schools and libraries. Why you ask?

I'm appalled that they banned Anne Frank's Diary.

I really liked Fahrenheit 451 (I read it earlier this year, I think)

I think when a book is banned it makes you want to read it more.


I'd say it definitely gets the curiosity going
