if you had to come up with a reading list for someone, my guess is you could do a lot worse than this one: The 100 most frequently challenged books (1990-2000)
it's kind of shocking that Roald Dahl has more entries than Brett Easton Ellis or Stephen King.
the two oddest enties? Where's Waldo? (???) and How to Eat Fried Worms. can you imagine the damage to our society if more children ate worms and searched dilligently for men in funny hats? (actually, on second thought...)
sadly, i've only read 10 of the 100. i do better on the controversial movies lists.
...ok, a quick edit...i've decided right now that i'm going to watch every film on one of those "greatest films of all-time" lists....so which one? the options:
NY Times (1000, so would obviously take longer)
or none of the above...
who's with me?
