Stupid Books

This made me smile:

Books that make you dumb.

Ever read a book (required or otherwise) and upon finishing it thought to yourself, "Wow. That was terrible. I totally feel dumber after reading that."? I know I have. Well, like any good scientist, I decided to see how well my personal experience matches reality.
And this made me laugh:
Update: I changed both Lolita from 'Erotica' and 'Pride and Prejudice' from 'Chick Lit' to Classics. You Literature majors all lack any sense of humor.
As I post this I can hear a Lion Dance taking place outside - my flat is just around the corner from Dublin's China-street. (Not even close to being its own town but still a great place to visit!) Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
