Very strange indeed. Even if I don't "get" a book, even if I think it revels in or actually endorses behaviors or attitudes I think are reprehensible, I would never even think to say they should be banned and/or burned. At worst I'll just stop reading, as I did with Rex Miller's Slob, for instance.
