Anyway, don’t let the caution tape scare you away–banned books are nothing to be afraid of!
Personally, I consider the most ironic book banning of all time to be the ban on Fahrenheit 451. Yes, somebody banned a book about banning books that said that banning books was bad. I believe it had to do with the fact that the Bible was one of the books banned in the story. So the apparent solution to the existence of a book about banning books mentioning the hypothetical ban of a book you believe in? Banning it, of course, if you’re some people.
I’ll leave you with a quote from the author, Ray Bradbury:
Happy (dangerous) reading!
