How about a bit of controversy?

Tag a few books as "ALA 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books". Here's a link to the ALA web site's list. I've created this tag, so just type in ALA 100 and it should come up. There is also a "banned book" tag already, which can be used as well.

The purpose of this tag is not to cause controversy, but to add information regarding these books to their tags list. It will also help members who wish to participate in the ALA's Banned Books Week to easily find books that have been challenged.

Anybody know of other lists of challenged books besides the ALA?

Edited to make this Mission #7. Apparently, I can't count today....

I labeled: I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, The Color Purple, and The Catcher in the Rye.

Some of these books have many copies listed. It might be best to try to tag those with ISBN's, not the non-ISBN listings. Though it was just as easy for me to label them from the search page.

We've got 209 tags so far for this mission. Anyone care to help out with some more today? :)
