Fast forward 15 years later I just bought a copy the other day to register at BookCrossing for their Banned books Month release challenge The ALA celebrates Banned books Week in September, so one BXer challenged us to wild release books that had at one point or another been banned in this country during the entire month Fahrenheit 451 fits the bill an irony that is not lost on anyone, I trust Everyone knows Fahrenheit 451 is about the evils of censorship and banning books, right The title refers to the temperature at which pa
