Have religious books ever been banned? Religion can be controversial, but I guess people don't see it as a bad thing. Well, I guess they'd have to ban the bible too if that were the case. Have they banned the bible ever?

Yeah, this community's been pretty quiet lately, but here I am looking for something to read and maybe you can help.
I'm in the midst of a brutal week of final exams, after which I will be going on a nice long train trip to decompress. I'm looking for a couple of good, short books to read. I'd like to get a few more banned books under my belt, so maybe you can suggest something.
I've read most of the standards: Animal Farm, Slaughterhouse Five, 1984, Fahrenheit 451, etc. But something else along those lines that isn't going to necessarily, you know, implode my brain, would be nice. Looking for something around 200 pages.
Sorry this is a little disjointed. Finals week has reduced me to a quivering mass of congealed black coffee and soggy muffins.
SERENITY NOW!!! (I need a TV.)

Four variations of the same icon based on Gilmore Girls. Again it has to do with books/reading so thought I'd share here as well.

I was wanting some library icons.
So I made some.
I'm trying to experiment with different framings and gradients. I rather enjoy these.
Thought because this is a book community, some of you might also enjoy. just comment/credit. :)

|farceuse||02:00 pm - Lolita: September's Banned Book|
What do you think of our reading novel for this month, Lolita? The question I myself was going to put to you was, to what extent can we trust Humbert's account of events, from Lolita's experience and early eagerness to the threats that Humbert begins to see everywhere? (I still have about fifty pages to go.)
( Discussion questionsCollapse )
Any comments, brief or detailed, are welcome. I'm interested to see what you all think.
