Banned Books Meme

I'm sure this has been done before, but the hullaballoo about the banning of Maureen Johnson's THE BERMUDEZ TRIANGLE made me want to do a banned book themed meme, so here it goes.

i can't even fathom why half of these books could possibly be offensive to anyone. and i'm also bored, so i might do this...
Seriously- what did Waldo ever do to offend anyone?
now what's really shocking me is that i've read more of the books than you
Methinks I need to go to the library this summer...
You can also all go to the library before the trip and pick up a book together, for you all to read.
I feel like I'm learning the new words well enough and I'm spending a good amount of time but a part of me thinks I need to be more agressive in my studying.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am anxiously awaiting your book on baseball, basketball, or whatever.

I can't believe you never read Are There You God? Its Me, Margaret. Not that I did or anything ...
One of the male grad students I knew when I was an undergrad was obsessed with this book. I think I'm the only girl alive who hasn't read it...
I checked your list twice, I can't believe you did not list either author. . Susan Sayfan; Longwood, Fla.
