However, even if a book isn't good for someone, I would never wish to see it censored or banned. Censorship degrades the freedom of everyone.
Your right. I actually knew the original poster was essentially asking if reading books that are the equivalent of a mindless TV show was still good for you. However, in my own mind I took that a bit further and wondered if reading anything you chose was bad for you (thus I responded to something that wasn't even asked).

As to the op's question, I think it is possible to read too much. The same as if you did any activity too much, as there comes a point where you start neglecting family, friends, and other priorities, but other than that, I think anything you is read is good as long as you enjoy it.
