What book have you no intention of ever reading?.

I'll go for...


100 Flowers to knit and Crochet by Lesley Stanfield.
I cannot foresee any circumstances under which I would read this book.
Eh at the moment...

I will never read Lord of the Rings or War and Peace. Or anything by Cecelia Ahearn.

Oh I second Cecilia Aherne.

Ayn Rand can also feck off. Tolstoy and Dickens as well.

Ulysses ... I have tried and I just cant. Its a sh*t book that people have gone proper shouty crackers over for some reason and that more than anything makes me really dislike it.

Neither Ulysses or the Bible for me too. Any book on mindfulness either, the very word enrages me !

Mindfulness as a mental health technique is very good and so simple I could explain it in 10 minutes easily! How anyone could genuinely write a book about it I don't know.

Oh yeah, you can add anything to do with Reiki, chakras, aura's, crystals or homeopathy to that list. They all need to get in the bag and never mind the stick I'm holding.

But without books on homeopathy, how would we know that water has memory? It can remember healing remedies that have been diluted to trace amounts and that time you used it to wash the vomit out of the bath!

I have Brian O'Driscolls bio here since my brother thought it would be a good christmas present. Well, he probably knew it wasn't and just picked up the first thing he saw. He is, Brian O'Driscoll that is, a class A cnut. I will happily give it away to anyone here who wants it. You pay postage or drop by and pick it up.

The procrastination equation. Someone thought it would be a really good present for me, but like, if I had time to read I'd have time to do all the other stuff I've put off doing!

I'd be surprised if any of those knuckle draggers were able to write their name let alone a book.
