Those banned books...

There's a great piece in Boing Boing about a high school student creating their own lending library of banned books that you can read about here.

I may have said this before, but while age-appropriateness is often tied to the fiction children and young adults access, I think it should likewise be discussed in terms of adults. It is, after all, just as ridiculous to say that only those 29 and above should read, say, Persuasion, as it is to say only those 15 and up should read Catcher in the Rye.
