I just made a list of 25 titles of Banned Books on the Lists feature of PBS.  It's an open list, so you can add all those favorite "wicked" books of yours to  the list to form a really generous group from among which Classics readers can select a "BB" for the 2014 Challenge.   Thanks, everyone.

It took a while but I finally found the list. There are some surprising titles on that list. Where did you find that list?

Here's a link to that list, to help others find it: http://www.paperbackswap.com/Banned-Books/list/16245/

Also, if it is useful, here is some info from the American Library Association on Banned Books, and titles that are frequently banned: http://www.ala.org/bbooks/frequentlychallengedbooks
