Today's topic: books.
Now, everyone who reads has read bad books. I myself have read thousands and thousands of books, and a lot of them were bad. Some were bad because they were disappointing (Walter Moseley's "Blue Light"); some were bad because they were incompetent (Jay McInerney's "Story of My Life"); some were bad because they were offensive (Andrea Dworkin's "Pornography: Possessing Women"); some were bad because they were incomprehensible (Laurence Rickels' "The Case of Califonia"); and some were bad because they just flat-out sucked (a men's adventure novel about a kung fu master -- I can't remember the name of the book or the series -- that was probably the worst thing I've ever read in terms of pure bad writing; it was the Plan 9 from Outer Space of books).
So, tell me: what are five of the worst books you've ever read in your life?
