1. War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy 1869
I haven't read it, but I have picked it up. It's so heavy I put my back out.
2. Fast Food Nation, Eric Schlosser 2002
This book turned me off pink slime for life.
3. A brief history of time, Stephen Hawking 1988
I read it. All of it. And that's two years of my life I'll never get back.
4. Les Patterson's Australia, Sir Les Patterson 1972
A drunken misogynistic ramble that offended me as a woman, and I'm a man.
5. Killing me softly, Nicci French 1999
Because the movie was so much better. Ok, the movie was dreadful, but Heather Graham took her gear off.
6. Quotations from Chairman Mao, Mao Zedong 1966
I can't read Chinese, I really don't know what I was thinking.
7. Activities of federal law enforcement agencies toward the Branch Davidians : joint hearings before the Subcommittee on Crime of the Committee on the Judiciary, House of Representatives, and the Subcommittee on National Security, International Affairs, and Criminal Justice of the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, One Hundred Fourth Congress, first session
by United States Congress House Committee on the Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime; United States Congress House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight Subcommittee on National Security, International Affairs, and Criminal Justice 1996
Before I finished reading the title I fell asleep and hit my head on the bedside table. I recommend you wait until it comes out in paperback.
8. The Walrus was Paul: The Great Beatle Death Clues of 1969 by R. Gary Peterson 1998
Delusional claptrap written by a supercilious buffoon whose fifteen minutes of fame thankfully ran out after 90 seconds. Everybody knows Ringo was the walrus, duh.
9. I Want to Tell You: My Response to Your Letters, Your Messages, Your Questions
by O.J. Simpson 1995
Simpson's diatribe made me even more upset that he was found not guilty. The book alone is worth jail time.
10. Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand 1957
I would rather bash myself over the head with this than read it again.
