Seriously, some of these books shocked me that someone would find the offensive, but to each his own. I just dislike the fact that there are some people in this country and world that would prevent others from making their own decision about what they read.

  1. andrea amy says

    I would choose paper towns but since I’m in Canada I believe I would have to take paypal or amazon 🙂

  2. Judy Cox says

    I would pick either The Kite Runner or Paper Towns. I have not heard of several of the others, will have to check then out.

  3. says

    I would order The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian because I’ve heard such great things! Some of the books on the list, like the Dr. Seuss ones, surprised me!

  4. says

    I’d either pick The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon or Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan. Probably leaning a bit toward the former at the moment. 🙂

  5. Melanie Westermann says

    You have banned books? What does this mean? You are not allowed to read this books?
    I would read them all just because I wanted to know why the books were banned!

  6. Nataile Brown says

    I would order the book The Glass Castle: A Memoir. I love books about people overcoming obstacles and this sounds great. Thank-you!!

  7. Jeanette Jackson says

    I am in Canada so I would be getting the $10 Paypal as my prize if I win but they all sound like really good books to read.

  8. Maida says

    The Kite Runner, The Brave New World or Siddhartha because all of them are amazing books I’d love to read again and again~ but I live outside of the US so ye…

  9. Holly says

    There are so many good ones! I’m leaning towards The Kite Runner. Or maybe Song of Solomon. Or maybe The Bluest Eye?

  10. Emma says

    Even though I’m outside the US, I would choose the House of the Night series. I started reading them when they first came out and loved them and want to get back into the series.

  11. Amber Terry says

    I’m not sure which one I would choose–there are so many good ones!

    Thanks for the chance to win 🙂

  12. Nicole Anderson says

    I’d love to read all of the books on that list. I always think that if someone doesn’t want it read then the book is pretty good and has something of true value in it. A developing awareness of our world – sometimes even who we really might be (Bless Me Ultima — a high school read changed me, well, developed me into a wiser and more self aware person). I’d love to actually read the Twilight series but I think Persepolis would win my pick for something new and informative.

  13. K Davis says

    It sounds crazy but I would choose, If I Ran the Zoo by Dr. Seuss. I’m curious about it, and I would love to have a copy for my niece.
