I worked in a used book store while in college and we used to joke about books that would land you on a watch list if you bought them through traceable channels.

Some examples of these books were "The Anarchists Cookbook," and the Uncle Fester series of books.

These books were sold into the books store rarely, but when they were, we never ever shelved them. There was no point. If you put them up on the counter they would sell the same day they came in. Every single time. So, although I never really did know if there was a list of books that would get you on a watch list, customers BEHAVED as if this was the case. They snapped those books up from us because we kept no record whatsoever of individual titles we bought in, or sold.

So............I am curious, is there really a list of books that will get you on a watch list if you buy them via normal channels? And if so, why is it impossible to find any evidence of said list? I googled around before this, people allude to the list, but no one seems to have a copy.

ATS? Anyone have any other titles they suspect would be on the list besides the ones I have mentioned?

Yeah, I googled that. I can see why that would end up on a list.

You know the worst thing about books that are "dangerous?" Just the fact that the PTB finds them scary makes you want to read them. Lol.

Maybe thats why they dont allow the publishing of the "List that will get you on the watchlist." They dont want to create demand for books they find threatening.

Hey, you, add titles if you have them.


Some other sites suggested that books about your rights were among the alleged books on the danger list. Anyone confirm or deny that one?

Buying multiple copies of 1984 is probably frowned upon.

Twilight should be on the list as potentially mind-altering and an IQ killer.

Bought Venceremos : The Speeches and Writings of Che Guevera by: John Gerassi (Editor), 1984 by George Orwell and Mein Kampf by __________ all at a B&N last summer and the lady behind the counter made a comment along the lines of " If you're trying to draw attention to yourself You couldv'e just bought the Che Book". Have no clue if she was serious but it got me wondering.

Wait. Your loic is "People bought them immediately when we shelved them, so they must have been critical watchlist reading, when the much more logical explanation is "these books caused controversy and dispute. Individuals wanted to know their content."

Gosh, I'm convinced. I'll never read CAtcher in the Rye again.
