Recently, in my community, the Board of Education has banned the book The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini from school curriculums and disapprove of it being in any student's hands. At the risk of displaying to the world the name of my hometown, here's the link to the original article in the newspaper. Link Since then, it has been removed from all the shelves and sparked the equivalent of a flame war in the paper's Opinions and Letter's section. Also, the local bookstore sold fifty copies in two weeks. It may have started months ago, but make no mistake everyone is still in an uproar. So, have any of you read the book? I'm reading it now, desptite the fact that it "isn't fit for my hands." Also, how do you feel about the banning of books in general?
