Random Chat: Banned Books

What makes a good blurb?

Step up, take a seat, make yourself at home and let’s chat!

Greetings, ladies and gentlemen!
I came across this article a few days ago:

7 banned books that everyone should read

And it got me thinking… In today’s society, is it feasible that a book be banned?
Are people throughout the globe yet not allowed to form their own decisions to read a book or not, and respective opinions?

Have I even read any banned books? I have to admit I am not sure. I have not read any of the ones listed in the article.

Have you knowingly read a banned book and know the story behind its ban?
I would really like to know, please post below!
