Which Banned Book Would You Recommend Everyone To Read?

Yes, even The Lorax has been banned before.

It’s time for our monthly challenge from our awesome reading Facebook group, Page Turners!

Disney

If you're not familiar with our reading group, each month we pick a theme, and you get to choose what you want to read and recommend books for other people to read! You can learn more about it here.

Which brings us to our June theme: banned books!

New Line Cinema

But what exactly do we mean by "banned books?" A banned book is one that has been banned or challenged by a government, school, or other organization. It's basically a form of censorship in one way or another. You can find a list of frequently challenged or banned books here.

Perhaps the Harry Potter series is your fave of all time and you're more than slightly offended anyone would ban them.

Scholastic/Amazon

Get the series from Amazon for $56.99+, Barnes and Noble for $55.81+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

Or maybe you loved the The Lorax as a kid and want to make sure today's kids know it's important to protect our Earth.

Random House

Get it from Amazon for $8.80+, Barnes and Noble for $14.13+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

Perhaps you read The Handmaid's Tale last year and felt the themes are super relevant to today's society and it shouldn't be censored.

McClelland & Stewart

Get it from Amazon for $10.55+, Barnes and Noble for $11.21+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

Or maybe you read To Kill a Mockingbird in high school and know how important it is for everyone to read this book.

Scholastic

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+, Barnes and Noble for $8.78+, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.

Tell us about your most-loved banned book and why it's your favorite for a chance to be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post. Don't forget to join the Page Turners Facebook group to get in on the discussion!
