Stare at that list
believe in it
let it break your spirit
3 out of the top 5 are republican nazi books
I've never met a republican that seemed like they ever read a book in their whole life. I don't know who are buying those books. It is disturbing to think that people are publishing books with I assume complete nonsense on every page. But what the fuck, people like nonsense
number 2 is a diet book. Americans are fat and they want to get skinnier even though they took the time to get fat
Number 6 is fiction, it is a story about a woman sending letters to her publisher. I have no fucking clue, of course it takes place around world war 2
NUMBER 9 THE SHACK ""The Shack" is a one of a kind invitation to journey to the very heart of God. Through my tears and cheers, I have been indeed transformed by the tender mercy with which William Paul Young opened the veil that too often separated me from God and from myself. With every page, the complicated do's and don't that distort a relationship into a religion were washed away as I understood Father, Son and Holy Spirit for the first time in my life. --Patrick M. Roddy, ABC News Emmy Award winning producer"
That is total nonsense. So books about republican nonsense, God nonsense, and vampires are what Americans want?
I just stuck my finger in my ass, pulled it out, and smelled it.
18: Olive Kitteridge: "Themes of suicide, depression, bad communication, aging and love, run through these stories, none more vivid or touching than Incoming Tide, where Olive chats with former student Kevin Coulson as they watch waitress Patty Howe by the seashore, all three struggling with their own misgivings about life."
This sounds okay
41 in books: Man Gone Down
has anyone read this, it looks good, somebody tell me the truth on it
618 in books: Those Who Save Us: holocaust novel

Fahrenheit 451: why it is there, don't know, pile of shit book.
Neil Gaiman has a book in it, it looks like a kids book. Neil Gaiman has sex with Amanda Palmer which makes him awesome to me.
Glenn Beck appears again at the end: someone wrote in his reviews, "Our democaracy is morally, politically and economically bankrupt." (Did not personally spell democracy wrong, copy and pasted)
What does that even mean?
If any of you say statements like that, or hear people say statements like that, just ask yourself or them, "What does that even mean?"
And you will win the argument.
Don't fight with facts.
Just ask them, "What does that even mean?"
The thing that troubles me about the list is that there is no 'literature', like books for adults, that take place in the present day, like I don't think I even saw a book that took place after 1950. Which makes me wonder about my prospects as a writer and my friends. If no one wants to read about the modern era and especially not about people from the modern era sitting around being depressed.
