The 10 Most "Challenged" Books of 2009
a book list by Peter, the avid reader who runs Flashlight Worthy
April means a lot of things to a lot of people: April Fool's Day, April showers, chocolate bunnies. To me, working with books, it means the American Library Association's annual announcement of the most "challenged" books of the previous year.
What do they mean by "challenged"? They mean someone requested the book be removed from their public library because of its offensive nature (and usually that means "offensive to children"). Fortunately, thanks to the hard work of librarians, teachers, parents, students and other book lovers, most challenges go nowhere; if anything, they create more attention for the books in question.
And speaking of more attention, I proudly present to you the 10 most "challenged" books of 2009.
