Books may challenged at a local, community level. As a result, books can be removed from schools or libraries, although these bans do not extend outside of that area. Similarly, religions may issue lists of banned books – a historical example being the Roman Catholic Church's Index Librorum Prohibitorum – which do not always carry legal force.

[close] Whether you are already part of a book group, are interested in setting one up or are an individual who would like to take part, then this is for you. Sign up for Read for RNIB and read one of our suggested books. Everyone that registers will be sent exclusive discussion points from our chosen authors, written specifically for the Read for RNIB Reading Group. There will be questions about the overriding themes of the books, plot development and the characters involved. However, the ‘novel’ idea behind this year’s Reading Group is that all of the books chosen feature a blind or partially sighted character. This means that you will also receive thought provoking questions that focus on this character and their journey throughout the story.
