Select a great book that has been banned, and read it in protest!

Obviously the ACLU has selected carefully to find the best, most widely loved books that have been banned. I suspect that having been banned does not necessarily mean that a book is in this class.

I suspect that many of the people who have banned these books are simply unable to appreciate good writing, and indeed that many of them have not read the books that they hate. I also suspect that others ban books, not to protect the public, but to protect themselves from the possibility that the public will learn to think thoughts that the censors feel threaten themselves.
