The only one I'm aware that they were successful is Woody Allen's memoir (I don't know if that was this year).
Which you can buy to read in three different formats on Amazon or listen to the audio book on Audible.  It was also reviewed everywhere.

It seems banned books have never been so freely available to read!  It's not like the old days.

That is not the point. I didn't say his book was never published, only that the tactics worked. Hachette declined to publish his book after employees protested.

Sidney Powell released the kraken in distrcoict court. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-11-26/ex-trump-lawyer-files-election-lawsuits-in-distrcoict-court


Already, there are claims she made so many spelling errors on purpose so the media would cover it.

OH, forgot to link directly to the filing https://www.docdroid.com/e3rhDCz/complaint-cj-pearson-v-kemp-11252020-pdf

Yeah, the idea that it's not good enough that they don't read the book (or listen to the speaker) they must make sure others can't read the book is very disturbing.

Welcome to the free market.  No company is obligated to publish books they don’t want to publish.  No university is obligated to give a platform to speakers the don’t want to hear speaking.

Each is free to listen to objections from employees, student bodies or anyone else whose opinions they value and act accordingly.

Maybe you’d prefer the state to decide what gets published instead?  Not very conservative though.

Yeah, it's great to hand over censorship to corporations. I don't know what could go wrong. (I'm not a conservative.)

I think it's super weird that they want to ban books, this used to be a thing the conservative Christians tried to do.

It is super weird. I kind of have a feeling that the marketing folks at Random House conjured up the whole scheme: "Let's have a 'town hall' regarding the publishing of a controversial author who we know some of our workers will get all avocado toast about and throw a fit and fall in it. We'll leak that event and subsequent turmoil to the press and we'll get the awareness about the book out there just like that...for free...on the backs of the woke..."

Normally I would agree, but this is like the fourth book the crybullies have tried to ban this year. The only one I'm aware that they were successful is Woody Allen's memoir (I don't know if that was this year).

His new book is #1 in the philosophy of ethics & morality category, and #6 in all books on Amazon right now.

Apparently today is "Kraken day" and some Trump supporters think Sidney Powell will release the Kraken. Others have said that every Wednesday before Thanksgiving will be Kraken Day from now on. lol

Today Trump is retweeting Randy Quaid! lol https://twitter.com/RandyRRQuaid/status/1327043884082409474?s=20
Is this satire?  Performance art?  Or just straight up whacko?

Randy Quaid lost his marbles years ago!  Trump retweeted several of his tweets yesterday, which is pretty weird, but maybe Trump just doesn't know how cuckoo Randy Quaid is.

Penguin Random House Staff Confront Publisher About New Jordan Peterson Book
During a tense town hall, staff cried and expressed dismay with the publishing giant's decision to publish 'Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life.'

Several Penguin Random House Canada employees confronted management about the company’s decision to publish a new book by controversial Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson at an emotional town hall Monday, and dozens more have filed anonymous complaints, according to four workers who spoke to VICE World News.

On Monday, Penguin Random House Canada, Canada’s largest book publisher and a subsidiary of Penguin Random House, announced it will be publishing Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life by Peterson, to be released in March 2021. The book will be published by Portfolio in the U.S. and Penguin Press in the U.K., both part of the Penguin Random House empire.

Four Penguin Random House Canada employees, who did not want to be named due to concerns over their employment, said the company held a town hall about the book Monday, during which executives defended the decision to publish Peterson while employees cited their concerns about platforming someone who is popular in far-right circles.

“He is an icon of hate speech and transphobia and the fact that he’s an icon of white supremacy, regardless of the content of his book, I’m not proud to work for a company that publishes him,” a junior employee who is a member of the LGBTQ community and who attended the town hall told VICE World News.

Another employee said “people were crying in the meeting about how Jordan Peterson has affected their lives.” They said one co-worker discussed how Peterson had radicalized their father and another talked about how publishing the book will negatively affect their non-binary friend.

Jordan Peterson should send Vice and the crying Canadians a thank you card. This will ensure his (probably very boring) book becomes a bestseller.
