Top banned books

I have always had a really big problem with banning books. I don't understand why people want to ban books. I love reading, I have a room full of books. I really want my own library within my house one day. So I just don't get it.
Well, #9 is to read all top 10 banned books of the 20th century. So, here they are:

Top 10 Banned Books of the 20th Century
10. The Grapes of Wrath [1939] John Steinbeck
9. Lady Chatterley's Lover [1928] D. H. Lawrence
8. Slaughterhouse-Five [1969] Kurt Vonnegut
7. To Kill a Mockingbird [1960] Harper Lee
6. Fahrenheit 451 [1953] Ray Bradbury
5. The Catcher in the Rye [1951] J.D. Salinger
4. Tropic of Cancer [1934] Henry Miller
