Ken Jennings wrote:Many others tried the banned book idea, usually based on on-line lists. Two problems with that:
1. Those lists usually don't include only banned books, but any book that's been challenged in any school or library anywhere in the country, ever.
2. The question asked for an "unusual distinction." Since these lists include literally thousands of books, include almost any western-canon standard, it's not really unusual. By contrast, I spent a day looking for canonical novels with sets of twins as characters, and found fewer than a dozen.
