Banned Books Week 2013

Harry Potter. Captain Underpants. The Hunger Games. Goosebumps. While these books may not share similar themes, plots, or authors, they do share something important in common: they have all earned a place on the list of books most often banned or challenged in the past decade, according to the American Library Association. This week is Banned Books Week and OOM has put together a slideshow of Scholastic titles that have been challenged over the years.

Check out the slideshow below and let us know your thoughts.

What do you think about efforts to ban books? And what would you do if your favorite book were challenged?
