Recommended reading list


I've only read twelve of the books on the list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990-2000 by the American Library Association (you know, that group that Dr. Laura rants about?). I'll have to scan their list carefully for some more good reading material and a selection of the most objectionable and seditious children's literature to provide for my girls.

20 for me. All those Judy Blume books add up. Plus a few required readings from HS.

11 but then i live a sheltered life and read to much fiction like clive cussler or louis l'amor.

I've always like to pick my own books. I guess I'm a rebels rebel.

Who really attacks books? What do they use, scissors. Do the books cry? Do they bleed?

I find Amazon.com 's recommendations a lot less politaclly motivated and much more personal.

I've read 13 of those...how unlucky.

19 -- and two of my all-time favorites are Catcher in the Rye and Slaughterhouse Five. As soon as we finish "A Separate Peace," the 10 yo and I will pick a juicy something from this list to read together.

I read 11 of those books. Mostly for high school and college classes.

Hee hee! Where's Waldo is on there! Waldo was the stuff!
