Banned books are books that, for one reason or another, have been banned from schools, libraries, book stores, etc. Books are generally banned for language, explicit content, witchcraft/supernatural, racial content and other controversial topic. In the past few years, banned books have almost become a genre of their own. I used to stake out the banned books shelves at my local book store when I was teen. Is there anything better than reading something you're not supposed to?
