Well guys, having just graduated college, I’ve realized that I’ve got a lot of time on my hands. I decided to go the the beach the other day. I have also had the simultaneous desire to start reading some books. Well, I happened to have JD Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye and I have to admit that I really loved it. It was one of my favorite books ever. I really want to do this more often, though. I want to take the subway, and read a book on the way there and back, making good use of the hour and a half it takes to get there. So that’s the deal. But the other thing I’ve realized is that my favorite books of all time have usually been banned at one point. Here’s some of my favorite books.
Catcher in the Rye
Tropic of Capricorn
The Sun Also Rises
So going by that, I decided to look at the most banned books. A few points of interest though. From the looks of this list, I noticed a few on there like Mark Twain books, that don’t really interest me at the moment. I’m sure they are great, but not for me, I don’t think. I was thinking of possibly going for the Slaughterhouse Five or maybe something different. My favorite type of book usually involves interesting characters in fairly normal settings. I suppose that’s why I liked Lolita, and Catcher in t he Rye, and Tropic of Capricorn the most.
Maybe you could suggest a few things?
