I came across this item in the comments section of a Guardian article about the worst book you’ve ever read. It’s rather relevant to my blog post Oxfam books.
“I frequently buy books in charity shops and plead with fellow readers not to recycle their bad books in that way. If you have a woodburning stove, heat your house with bad writing. If you have a compost heap, fertilise your garden with literary manure. If you have a wheely bin for paper, cardboard and so on, anchor it to your kerbside with weighty nonsense. But please don’t pollute the charity shops with horrible books – somebody after all will buy them.”

Have your say! (No need for any ID!)
