^I think we will end up getting a nice free-for-all list out of challenged books and I think it will be a lot of fun gleaning lists for ideas. Based on those.

Already, the book two book clubs have read at least two that I know of. Slaughterhouse-Five and Lolita.

There are some crazy brilliant writers and titles on the list: The Sun Also Rises, The Grapes of Wrath, Rabbit, Run, The Handmaid's Tale, Beloved, As I Lay Dying

Marxism? Am I missing something written between the lines of being a picky eater?

Allen Ginsberg's Howl looks interesting considering he went to trial for obscenity.
