I found this site that has a section for specifically downloading free books that have been banned:

Here is an interesting map indicating where books have been challenged or banned in the US. I'm just sick that my beautiful, liberal city is on it. Of course, that meant it was someone who was offended because the book had negative racial stereotypes, not for religious grounds or anything. Thank goodness the challenge was turned down.

The site is maintained by the ALA.
