What started out as a pastime soon turned into a hobby that turned into a passion until it eventually became a necessity. Reading is a need so beautiful that I feel I must write about it every day.

Worst books I've read!

Don't call me hater! Because I'm not. I love books, hence this book blog! But to be honest there have been a few books Ive read that were awful! So to save who ever is reading this, from the mental trauma I went through after reading these true masterpieces of nonsense, here is my list of the 5 worst books. 

5. An Inconvenient Truth: The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It

4. How to Marry the Man of your Choice by Margaret Kent
 My mum has been giving me better advices than Ms (I highly doubt its Mrs.) Kent did in her 187 page long book.

3. Skinny Bitch: A No-Nonsense, Tough-Love Guide for Savvy Girls Who Want to Stop Eating Crap and Start Looking Fabulous!

Interesting statistics

I am not particularly fond of numbers but I do like reading statistics. They usually reveal surprising facts... if you can call them facts, that is. For example Pakistan's government claims it's rural population's literacy rate to be 48%!

Well...we know better.

Did you know that between 2002-2010 there was a: 99% increase in books in the genre of Poetry and Drama? 89% increase in Fiction, while only 2% and 4% increase in Language and Travel books, respectively. I am happy with the statistics. While Drama and Fiction are my favorite genres, I couldn't care less about books on Travel and Language (some things are best left for real life experiences).

Which are your favorite genres? I'd love to know. :)
