I've read 7 of the 10
Did not read Animal Farm, Scarlet and Mockingbird


"SNOPES" does not agree with your list.

If you actually google "what are the most banned books from public libraries and schools in the U.S." you will get a variety of different listings.

disclaimer: I do not trust "SNOPES". I am only providing the link because it seems that the lefties here believe everything they read at "SNOPES" and trust it as factual source.

We read eight of ten of those in school. They banned Fahrenheit 451 somewhere? The irony never ceases.

Good post. When I saw, "Most banned books," I interpreted as, "Banned more than zero times."

According to the Snopes article, To Kill a Mockingbird is indeed one of the most banned books.

What kind of moronic A-hole is anti-To Kill a Mockingbird?!

"To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most frequently challenged
books in the US due to its themes of rape and use of profanity
and racial slurs."

1960 was a different time in this country. This book was a runaway bestseller it was made into a movie almost immediately. Today you couldn't even get it published by any of the reputable publishing houses.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
