Should books have a content rating system like movies?


My wife works for a publishing company and one of the frequent complaints they get is that their books (specifically the one the customer purchased) is too graphic in one way or another. Part of that is a lack of research on the consumers part, and part of it is that books aren't labeled with any rating system, outside of general genres like 'adult', 'young adult' and 'children's'. When I was a kid, I felt I got a hold of a lot of books I shouldn't have just because my parents didn't think the books could be offensive. Should they have ratings or would that spiral into rampant censorship?

    Rating is the beginning of censorship: it is the foot in the door.
