Are reading banned books good for you? Let’s hear our marketing assistant Abby’s take!

When thinking of Banned Books, the benefits of reading them is always brought up as a question. I compiled a list of the benefits that come along with reading banned books.


  1. Insight into the literary canon
  2. Feeling super cool by doing something “bad”/against the rules
  3. Help develop feelings and opinions surrounding topics that may not be discussed in school
  4. Explore different view of the world
  5. Read some of the classics
  6. Be informed in discussions of censorship
  7. Open up your mind
  8. Challenge what you “know”
  9. Realize the true power of words
  10. Share and share and share the knowledge you gained from reading them

Read banned books, they’re good for you.
