I've not read "Stained", and probably won't, but I do have a personal policy 
that I use when deciding what to do about a book.  If I have any question 
about something I've heard about and might consider buying, I ILL it first 
and read it.  I've saved myself a lot of grief, and the district's taxpayers 
a lot of money over the years.  The other thing I have done in every place 
I've been the librarian.  I have assured all my administrators that I will 
not put a book on the shelf I'm not willing to defend.  If I'm not willing 
to defend it, what kind of librarian would I be if it DID come up for a 
challenge?  I'm not pretending that there aren't books on the shelf that 
could cause trouble.  I have not read everything, and there were a lot of 
books here when I started, but I try to make careful decisions about where I 
put my purchases.  I have a PreK-12 library, so I basically have three age 
ranges I put books in.
