'Looking for Alaska' has been banned in my home Tennessee county: Sumner.  Deemed too sexy for high school students.  I had never heard of the book, and now I have to read it, as I guess are most of the students in Sumner County now!  Ban a book and give it the best publicity!  Perhaps the Sumner County School Board might consider burning it instead.  That'd show 'em!

Cold Comfort should be read at least once a year just to uplift and soul and to give the reader a jolly good humane laugh.
