According to a Harris Poll taken of 2,400 adults of their favorite books, of the top 10 books I’m supposed to read before I die, two of them are penned by that no-talent -ass-clown Dan Brown, another was the Harry Potter series, which is great but not exactly a necessity to read before I depart this mortal plane, and a third insult-to-injury was The Stand by Stephen King. Holy hell.
Ok, so our country’s literary taste is somewhat lacking, but even more alarming in my mind is the serious absence of substance in a bout 50% of that list. Dan brown isn’t exactly pondering the great imponderables. Most of these are beach books in the extreme — pretty telling for our national intelligence of late.
