Can anyone provide me with a list of banned books?

I find that usually the books teens and other age groups are discouraged from reading are the best. My school doesn't have any banned books, but my friend goes to a catholic private school and the list is list ten pages long. It doesn't even have to be a school list. Any banned books please thanks.

Update:

Just novels.

    I think it is AWESOME you are interested in banned books. They are really the connection we have to other humans. :) If you are interested, the American Library Association (ALA) has a website, where you can not only find a recent banned book list, but also banned book lists of past years, and books on the "Watch List." This week is Banned Book Week, and I hope you have a great time exploring books that matter :)

    Any books that the government isn't authorized. it must be in 1000. we could in basic terms say any books that printed decrease than South Vietnam government (previous government) possibly have been given banned.
