Books I haven’t read

I know I am about to shock a lot of people…especially since almost everyone knows I volunteered as a city’s librarian for two years, setting up a library and writing grants for it………but I have never read the following (nor do I plan on it….ever)

 

  1. Harry Potter……..nope, never read it..nor any of the Potter books (all 800 bazillion it seems I shelved)
  2. Like Water for Chocolate…first the title didn’t make any blasted sense at all. second..the title STILL looked stupid
  3. anything by Ayn Rand or Oscar Wilde………just didn’t seem interesting at all.
  4. Moby Dick…I had it read to me once..that was enough
  5. 50 shades of grey..or the next one. Well, that isn’t exactly true. I read to page six…after that it was just porn and I don’t read porn.
  6. The Hobbit (in my defense, I did try. I stopped after page one)
  7. anything by James Patterson.
  8. Harlequin romances………nope, sorry. I don’t do bodice rippers.
  9. Any vampire books.  Well except Dracula…I read that one
  10. The Art of the Deal………..had to stick that in there. I just can not waste money buying a book written by some jackass that went through 13 bankruptcies and still think’s he’s a “good businessman”.

Now, if it is written in English and NOT on that list? I’ve probably read it, am in the process of reading it or have downloaded it for later.

  4. I DID read Harry Potter – at least the first 6 books – because I read them to my children when they were growing up. And I did read The Hobbit and the entire Lord of the Rings series but I cheated by not reading all the songs. As for the rest, I’m with you. :o) I have read some amazing books over the years though. :o)

  5. I’ve read #5, #6, maybe a couple of #7, one #8, and a lot of # 9s. Interesting to think about. I need to do a list! 🙂

  6. I can save you the trouble of reading Ayn Rand.

    The Fountainhead: Hey, Howard Roark May come across as a fascist and a deplorable human being, but hey at least he has the power of Capitalism!

    Atlas Shrugged: A millionaire destroys society to avoid paying taxes.

  7. I didn’t read any of those except tons of Harlequin Regency romances, some of which were excellent involving serious subject matter like racism and sexual abuse during wartime, and The Hobbit set decades ago. I have been starting Oscar Wilde’s Portarit of Dorian Grey, but the style is so very ARCH that it is slow going. It was the book that got him convicted and sent to jail for the crime of homosexuality and so ultimately killed him, so sociologically and personally I want to know about it. The rest of the list seemed pretty junky to me, but others may disagree. I might even disagree some days!

  9. LOL, “bodice-rippers” — oh gosh, that SO suffices! With the exception of Oscar Wilde, who can be utterly hilarious, I’m with you on what I haven’t read.

      1. “The Importance of Being Earnest” upped my laugh mechanism for all time. He was brilliant, I think.

  10. Harry Potter….I’ve never ever read one. But to my luck, both of my best friends are fan…no they are obsessed with it. They talk and I just sit nodding in the middle….haha
