WHAT BOOK WOULDN'T YOU READ?

What book would you not read even if it was the only book you had on a desert island?

Wuthering Heights, if it is anywhere near as frustrating
as Jane Eyre.

I loved Wuthering Heights.

I would never read any horror books, period.

Not interested in Glenn Beck's scribbles. It would be a major inconvenience for me.

I like to read too much myself to not read something...A Math book maybe since I stunk at it in school! LOL

I rarely read a book with more than 300 pages - just too impatient to get to the end. But if I were on a deserted island and had nothing else to do, I might read War and Peace or Harry Potter books. Until I'm on a deserted island, I probably won't read any of them.

I would use Mein Kampf and the Turner Diaries as fire-starters.

The one that comes to mind is that one that OJ put out. The kind of thing put out by criminals and jaggoffs to make money off their own crimes and stupidities, like the recent governors caught with pants around ankles, so to speak, i.e. Spitzer, Blagojevich, Sanford, etc etc. But I might have use for the paper in those books, if stranded on a desert island...

Fierce Guardian -- maybe being stranded (temporarily) would be a perfect time to read 'Mein Kampf' -- to affirm Hitler's stated intent and to shut down the historical revisionists after returning to the mainland.

Anything by Anne Rice. I had one of her books.... and I don't even remember which one, the first page was so dark and evil, I threw it away and will never read another of hers.
And I have nearly ever Stephen King written along with lots of other 'horror' novels
Hemmingway has moved way low on my list of authors also.

Ron
The book by OJ (If) I DID IT, is now owned by Ron Goldman. All rights and future profits are the property of Ron Goldman. However your point is well taken.

Okay, I forgot that. Maybe I could buy a copy and use it as a personal hygiene product instead of reading it. Kind of like Lodi's idea of illegally downloading the works of Kanye West, and then deleting it without playing.

The Anne Rice..... I don't know, it wasn't that it scared me..... the feeling of darkness was one that I had only gotten in really horrible situations in the ER. I don't know how else to put it. I frankly have had all the reality and darkness I care to ever feel, I don't need to read about it!

Anything by Joseph Conrad (dark,dark, dark & totally impossible to read) and most books by Thomas Hardy (though I once managed to get through Tess of the D'Urbervilles),The Last of the Mohicans (dry as dust).
