Inspired by this post, I’m going to post my NTBR list.
1. War & Peace – Leo Tolstoy
This book will probably not give me the peace I usually feel when reading, but instead would probably make me want to wage war with it.
2. Any Shakespeare books
I’ve read 2 for literature classes – Macbeth and Hamlet (of all of Shakespeare’s classics, my class was assigned the two most morbid ones). The plot is interesting, but Shakespearean language does not appeal to me. I wouldn’t mind reading abridged versions or watching movies though.
3. Douglas Adams’s books
I’ve read Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and I’m scarred for life.
I’m sure there are plenty of books I wouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole, but I won’t say just in case I change my mind in the future. 😛 Presently, though, I do not read any political or self-help books. Or health books.
What books do you not plan to read and why?
