Again?

This made the banned book list in schools back in the 80's. When did they let it back in?


...but I had to read it in 2004 or 2005 for a honors literature class in highschool.

This is just sad... to k!ll a mockingbird is one of the greatest books in my opinion. If they take take fictional books out of the ciriculum i feel that they need to at least make an elective literature class. With out presenting books like these to kids they are cutting out creativity which was one of the things that school pressed so hard on b4

Never read this book
This book changed my professor's life. He was pretty much headed nowhere in life until he read this book and now he's a college professor and touring jazz musician. He idolizes this book.

I don;t remember much of catcher of the rye but to k!ll a mocking bird pissed me off and so did huckleberry finn. I got tired of reading white literature in high school, it only makes African American students feel as if they have two paths in life work for the white man and do right for him or go to jail and die. there were only two books that I read and enjoyed and they were the biographies of Fredrick Douglas and Malcolm X

did you know that the person who k!lled john lennon was crazy about the catcher in the rye.. it was even blamed as to why he k!lled john lennon, he even read a part of a page at his court hearing, dude really thought he was the main character of the book

Sad thing is, some people really blame the book for some of its content.

Never read either of the books.... heard of them, ill look at the cliff notes and decide if i wanna read.

But why schools still teach about Christopher Columbus and Thanksgiving... that sh*t shoulda been banned.
