Top 10 Most Challenged Books in 2010

Censorship, or attempted censorship, lives on.

I understand wanting children to read age-appropriate books, but that is something that parents must take part in deciding.  As for other censhoship attempts, I'm entirely against them.  If you don't like a book's point of view, don't read it, or read it and refute it somewhere - there are plenty of places for expressing your opinion these days.  But don't tell me I can't read something because you don't like it.

Seems to me that those who want to censor have a weak faith in their own arguments against a point of view.  If an idea or argument can't stand up to critical scrutiny, it isn't worth much.
