The 101 Books Blogaversary Giveaway!

So the blog turned 4 on Friday (technically Saturday). That’s fun and all, but I don’t think 101 Books would’ve lasted as long without all you guys around.

So today, like I sometimes do, I want to giveaway a few books as way of saying thank you. I wish I could give a book to all you guys but that just ain’t gonna happen.

Since the blog is turning 4, I figured why not give away 4 books? That’s the most I’ve ever given away, but it’s a special occasion, so why not?

To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is respond to this question in the comments:

What’s the worst book you’ve ever read?

Of all the people who respond, I’ll use a random number generator to pick 4 winners. Those lucky 4 winners can pick any book from the Time list I’ve read to this point. That’s 73 novels to choose from!

You’ll have three whole days to enter the contest!

I’ll post the winners on Friday morning, then you’ll just need to email me your shipping address so I can send the books out. All the costs are on me.

Thanks again guys.

Now, go ahead and enter the giveaway by answering this question:

What’s the worst book you’ve ever read?

  1. At this point the worst book I read was The Rain by Virginia Bergin. The idea behind the book was great but the character and the writing wasn’t. While everyone else was dead, the character was preoccupied by her make-up and how she looked. Very disappointing!

  2. I know these are fighting words, but you are definitely picking a fight with this question.

    So I have tried to read Moby Dick twice, listening to it on CD in case that would make it easier, but no. Both times I get stuck in the whale category section. Just plain awful. Life is too short for hundreds and hundreds of pages I don’t want to read, only because I should.

    Commence the throwing of rotten vegetables.

  4. Ik ook van jou (I love you too) by Ronald Giphart. There was practically no plot, it was just all about sex: they were either doing it or talking about it. Maybe 1% was about something else. I didn’t relate nor felt attached to the characters at all. And the main character has the same name as the author, so it’s like he wrote about his fantasy love life or something :/

  18. Now that’s a great question, and happy 4th to your blog!

    The worst book I’ve read up to this point was ‘It’ by Stephen King. I’d been looking to read a King novel for awhile as I heard so much praise for his work. Finally getting down to read something and I wished I hadn’t bothered. I tried a few others of his too, but ‘It’ stands out as the worst. It was definitely more aggravating than terrifying!

Been keeping the list since I was a kid. So I start going backwards through the list. My eyes lit upon its title. Want to know what it is? Drum roll please. The worst book I ever read, and I have read some bad ones over the years, is “Who Moved My Cheese?” by Spencer Johnson and Kenneth Blanchard. And I had to read it twice. Two different bosses gave it to me and ordered, no demanded I read it. Then they quizzed me on it. Fortunately I don’t work there anymore.

  26. “The Taking” by Dean Koontz was appalling. The biggest disappointment was how it undermined my memory of enjoying other books of his from when I was a teenager. It started off with a good enough premise then careered off into essentially telling me I’m evil because I’m a scientist (but oddly clinicians are good people as they help others – but isn’t their work based on science?), as well as going into how society was getting worse, etc. It turned into a fundamentalist, old person whinge against progress and science. One of the lines was something like “They say God made the universe. The astrophysicists don’t understand it, but perhaps wiser men do.”

  42. The Choice by Nicholas Sparks. The love story of the leads is boring and built on the foundation of infidelity – the female lead is committed to another guy and leaves her former partner (with no negative qualities as such) of many years cos of her attraction towards the hero, who woos her knowing she is committed. From there, it’s one boring journey ahead with tragedy thrown in just for the sake of it, leads blaming themselves for no reason, the dilemmas over old promises made in a fit of stupid, romantic passion are weird too, even the whole situation and setup comes across as unreal. The story evokes no emotion for the characters who just don’t come across as mature and the story drags unnecessarily at a lot of places too. I am not fond of sappy love stories anyway but this one was just a mood spoiler.

  82. I should probably make a difference between “bad” and “challenging”. The most challenging was “Ulysses” which I therefore absolutely hated and fought hard to finish it (but I did, in the end). On a narrow second place comes “Man Without Qualities” and that had the disadvantage of being even longer than “Ulysses”. But the “worst” book in terms of quality and style could be “Twilight”, although there might be others I fortunately forgot very soon.

    Since I can only mention one I’ll say: Subterranean. OMG. The dialogue was so poor and a pain to try and get through it.

  91. Good question! Also so interesting to read others’ comments to this one!! This took a some thought, I am glad to say I think I have forgotten most of the clunkers I have started or read over the years but there was one that comes to mind…
    The Road by Cormac McCarthy. In my opinion it was well written but it was the most depressing book I think I have ever read and yes, I realize that was intentional. It took work to finish, bleak and dark.

    Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. I would prefer to eat nails over having the misfortune of reading that book again.

    • I didn’t like it, either, and I think I know why. At any point in the plot, Tess could have said, “this is who I am, and this is what has happened to me”, and somebody would have fixed all of her problems, end of story. That she refused to do that made it hard to summon any sympathy for her.

    Recent worst book, Devil in the White City. Tedious and overwritten.

  96. Bad Twin.

    It’s sort of a spinoff book from Lost, and I tried to re-read it a few years ago after the series had ended to see if I’d missed the point the first time around, but it’s hard to miss a point when there’s no point to be missed.

    The Lost creators seemed to agree in a podcast:

    Carlton Cuse (quoting a questioner) “Was the [killed] turbine man from the pilot [episode] Gary Troup, author of Bad Twin?”

    Damon Lindelof: Yes.

    Carlton Cuse: It was indeed.

    Damon Lindelof: And considering that I have now read Bad Twin, [Laughs] Gary Troup got exactly what he deserved. [Carlton laughs] Next!

  97. I love the concept behind this giveaway! I think my most-hated book is “An Egg on Three Sticks.” But if I were to select a classic that I hated with a passion, it would be “A Brave New World” because it’s unforgivably racist!

  98. I can honestly say I hated Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire. I tried reading it twice. I could not succeed either time.

    Well, I can undoubtedly say that the worst book I’ve ever read is ‘Unravel Me’ by Tahereh Mafi. The first book was good enough but then the things went to hell. I couldn’t even finish the second book and well, uhhm, I never even tried to read the third one.

  100. I tried once reading ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ by E. L. James and I only went through to the first 200 pages and I was so disgusted that I threw the book away and God forbid anyone who is going to read this book and like it. 😛
