To quote the ALA website: "The American Library Association promotes the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one's opinions even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular, and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those viewpoints to all who wish to read them."

According to my reading records, I have read 30 books from the Banned Book Lists. I would have to say there was only one title I could not finish - "Naked Lunch". Also, of these books, there were only seven that I rated below a "4" on a scale of 1-5, with a rating of "5" meaning "It was amazing!".
