Top ten most frequently challenged books of 2009


From the American Library Association, the top ten most frequently challenged books of 2009. A depressing mix of new releases and lovely classics. I'm just so baffled by those parents that would rather have a book removed entirely from a library rather than have a conversation with their children about the content. So barbaric!

I suppose the small silver lining is that the number of books challenged in 2009 was less than in 2008.
