How many have you read?


  1. I've read "I know why the caged bird sings," "The Chocolate War," and "The Advertures of Huckleberry Finn." I'm always surprised by the titles that make it onto banned book lists. Thanks for the info.

  2. I googled some of these--the ones I was unfamiliar with--to learn more about them, including The Chocolate War--the title's intriguing, at the very least. Would you recommend it?

    Christie, I appreciate your comment, as always!

  3. Thanks for the reference, Suko. I haven't read any of these books!
