Nah, I just have an odd selective memory. (I only remember things that I don't need to.)
Sorry to disappoint you XD

I love The Outsider. I had to read for 8th grade and me and my friends read the book ahead of everyone because we couldn't wait for the rest of the class to catch up. We also got to watch the movie after the class finished. As for a bad book that I have read, I can say that I've never read a bad one that I can remember. I'm sure I have, but it probably got dump to a mind shredder. I'll remember it somehow.

:) I read ahead of my class too. They were taking far too long - so I took the book home on the weekend. And I'm not ashamed to say that I cried when ______ died. (You'll know who I mean if you've read it.)
We got lucky - a local theatre company put on the stage adaptation of it, and my entire class got to go. I cried againg when the same character died (the actor was brilliant - his looks were perfect for the role, and his acting was something else).
So, HAH! Another Canadian :) Probably. That makes three of us (me, levina, and I'm guessing you too).

I cried at the end too. Just thinking about the book makes me want to read it, even if I'm going to cry again.... That's pretty cool that your school did a adaptation on it.

And no, I'm not Canadian. I'm from the US. I was born in the New England area, but I live in the south now, I know it's a drastic change from urban to country, but it's actually pretty nice, quiet(even though I miss the noise of cars and the mountains, luckily where I live there are some hills so I won't feel so "home-sick").

Books you should never read? 50 Shades of Gray. I opened it to a random page and was scarred immediately.
All that jazz!

yeah, I heard about that book, definently not a material that should be un-supervised,... :laughing:

Books you shouldn't read: Quo Vadis. I read it last month, and it is considered really good, and an amazing classic, but if you ask me, it is very corny, and the writing isn't very good.... also, it's super-missionary, so people who are not christan (and perhaps christans too) can be bothered by how much religous kitsch is in there....
Hi people.
I have something very important to tell you.
But now I forgot what it was.
Maybe I'll remember later. who knows.
If I will, I'll be sure to write it. So..... Yeah.
Dismissed. Carry on.

True. Those books are.. Well, it depends on the reader's taste.

Did you not know it was porn before you opened it or..?

Anyway, 50 Shades of Grey is basically Twilight AU fanfiction with the names changed. I'm not even kidding, from what I understand it's a longer version of an actual fanfic.
Maybe if I actually write my AF fanfiction and change the name, I can sell it as a new teen book series and make millions? (No, I wouldn't do that. The original species and OCs I made for it might work as an original series, but I wouldn't use the actual fanfiction. I'd at least write new stories.)

Yes. I had no idea it was porn. My friend thought the cover was cool, so I was going to get it for her birthday. When I opened it in the bookstore I was just like.. O.O whuuut floral-patterned bedsheet is this?
Actually, if we could just make money from publishing fanfiction, I would be the richest person on Earth. No kidding. I have a whole cupboard full of fanfics.
