Scary: The Decade’s Top 10 Best-Selling Books List & What It Says About America

By Debbie Schlussel

What’s atop the list of the top 10 best-selling books in America for the last decade? You can probably guess. And it says a lot about how low this country has sunk, culturally and otherwise. We’re a nation of lowlifes and vapidiots. (At least, the women are.) But you knew that.


As you probably also know, earlier this week, author Harper Lee announced that she was releasing her first new book in more than a half-century. In an article about it, the Wall Street Journal published this list, below, of the top 10 best-selling adult fiction novels for the last 11 years. Atop the list was the poorly-written, incredibly stupid, torture sex “novel,” “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Even worse, the two sequels to that book are respectively Numbers Five and Six on the list. Lee’s well-known “To Kill a Mockingbird” is Number Nine on the list.


The list spans from the week ending January 4, 2004 through the week ending January 25, 2015, so it covers just over 11 years. It was compiled from Nielsen’s BookScan’s U.S. Consumer Market Panel. If you look at the list, it might seem inaccurate. For instance, the Fifty Shades books sold a total of 45 million in the United States (and more than 100 million worldwide, including the U.S.). But the list has the total at 15.7 million copies. That’s because this list doesn’t include e-books, and it covers about 85% of the print book market, not the entire market. (The Fifty Shades books were only available as e-books at first and for a long time. They thought women would be embarrassed to be seen reading the trash. No, that’s not today’s America. They have no shame.) Still, it’s a pretty strong indicator of what most Americans are reading in the fiction market and how dumbed-down, depraved and warped they are. Or, rather, how dumbed-down, depraved, and warped American women are.

You see, the American fiction market is 80% female, just 20% male. Women are the ones driving this list. I mean, do you know any American male (straight OR gay) who has admitted to reading these books (other than Rush Limbaugh–he loves cats, too, and you know what I say about men who love cats)?

Most American men don’t read novels or other fiction. They read history, biographies, things of that nature. And when they read fiction, it’s spy novels, thrillers, stuff like that. They don’t read stupid, glorified Harlequin Romance novels about torture room sex that sounds like it came out of the “ISIS Guide to Women and Romance.” It’s trite but true: as the old saying goes, he who forgets his history is doomed to repeat it. But she who doesn’t care about history and pimps her mind on imbecilic fluff is doomed to be a dumbass and a lowlife (and we’ve now got a whole country full o’ those). You don’t have to be a prude to get that. In many ways, you are what you read.

For the record, I don’t read that crap, either, though I did read these dumb, boring “novels” to keep up with pop culture and keep up to date with the typical moronism of American women–read my review of these idiotic books. My large library of mostly used books is 95% history and biographies (and some sports and how-to stuff). The rest is mysteries, thrillers, spy novels, and sci-fi.

Occasionally, I like to read a good guilty pleasure. But that Fifty Shades crap ain’t it. The books were silly, a bore, stupid, and written in fifth-grade-level English (apologies to fifth graders for the comparison). They were full of repetitive “old lady” terms like, “oh, my” and “my sex” for the vaginal canal. Probably because they were “written” by an old lady fat chick. The books were referred to as “mommy porn.” They’re not that. They’re just the disgusting, violent fantasy of unhappy middle-aged women. But American chicks gush and drool over this dung heap because, after all, they’re as reliable as Brian Williams when you need a reality check.

I have no problem with Khaled Hosseini’s “The Kite Runner” being toward the top of the list, if–as I’m told–the movie hews closely to the book. I found the movie (read my review) to be incredibly moving, powerful, and inspiring. It’s the story of a secular Afghan refugee family. The moderate son of the wealthy father, winds up in America, but he confronts his childhood friend in Afghanistan. The friend has become an Islamic terrorist. It’s a nice fairy tale about how the non-existent moderate American Muslims confront Islamic terrorism. If only it were true in real life. But it rarely is. In fact, though, the Pew Research Center found that most American Muslim youths were far more extreme than their immigrant parents. Still, it’s a good movie that promotes the right message . . . and shows us that the only real “moderates” in Islam are secularists who’ve left it and embraced Western values instead.

I also don’t object to Dan Brown’s thrillers dominating the list. I haven’t read the books, but I understand that they aren’t politically correct. One of the novels, “Angels and Demons,” features an explicitly Muslim assassin, who is basically a terrorist. (As I noted on this site, Hollywood sanitized the bad guy and made him a blond Scandinavian.)

I’m not surprised at all that these silly bondage and S&M sex books topped the list. And you probably aren’t either, because that’s the America we’re in now. An America in which the Kardashians are rich and famous and among the most admired, and applauded for bending over and showing America the inner crevices of what’s between their butt cheeks, as Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner just did for Love Magazine. An America in which an Olympic Gold Medalist decathlete who was our symbol of male machismo and athleticism in the 1970s has now announced he’s been taking female hormones for almost a year and will soon chop off his penis and testicles. An America in which our President may have already done those things in the name of Islam. He certainly talks that way as he goes back centuries to invoke Christian crusades in order to excuse Muslims burning a man alive in a cage today. An America in which teen moms are celebrities, and so are young male employees at Target who “look cute” in an Instagram photo.

This is not the America in which I grew up. It’s the America in which Fifty Shades of Grey garbage dominates the cultural and “moral” landscape. Where women think it’s cool and hot and sexy to be tied up and whipped and brag about it.

Next week, the excessively hyped “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie debuts in theaters. In the weeks to come, will it sell more tickets on U.S. soil than “American Sniper”? That will tell us a lot more than the top ten adult fiction novels list.

Sadly, I’m betting American women like torture sex as much as ISIS does.

Sex sells. And even though the mainstream media and pop culture narrative is that men are pigs, the overwhelming success of the Fifty Shades trash shows that . . .

Women are bigger pigs than men. Yay, feminism.

Yay, America.

We’re not number one. But “Fifty Shades of Grey” is.

I am proud to say that the only book on this list that I’ve read is To Kill a Mockingbird (forced to read it in high school — we can’t be reminded too often what a racist country we are). I am also proud that I haven’t heard of a number of these titles.

While I know little about Dan Brown, I know that many liberals like to read The Da Vinci Code, so I suspect that it is somewhat objectionable.

Not that some of the earlier 20th Century novels were much better. Dreiser, for instance, was a hard-core Communist and anti-semite (as were virtually all the naturalist and realist authors); many 20th century authors glorified or identified with the Communists in the Spanish Civil War, and so on.

A few exceptions like Exodus do make this marginally a better period, though.

Another exception was that an important aspect of earlier literary life consisted of some celebrity professors feeling they had an obligation to raise the literary level of the American public. Clifton Fadiman was an example, as was Lionel Trilling. Mortimer Adler became a celebrity by publicizing the Great Books. Cultural criticism, exemplified by Jacques Barzun was miles above what passes for cultural criticism today.

Today, unfortunately, though, I don’t think there are any exceptions. University presses disproportionately publish politically correct garbage, and many ‘popular’ historical books are oversimplified to the point of large-scale inaccuracy.

For mysteries, we have plummeted from Sherlock Holmes to Sue Grafton. Instead of a brilliant deductive detective, we see a woman obsessed with ‘finding herself’.

Little Al on February 6, 2015 at 5:00 pm

These statistics really are shocking, and I expected some pretty bad ones.

skzion on February 6, 2015 at 5:02 pm

And the travesty of college English departments!?!

Shakespeare, Chaucer and Milton have been de-emphasized to the point where it is possible to major in English in many colleges without being forced to study them at all (or only fleetingly as part of a survey course.) Instead, numerous courses about colored authors — oops, I mean authors of color–, women authors, Native American authors, Latina authors, transgender authors, and a few Communist authors.

(and of course, when Shakespeare, Milton and Chaucer are studied, it is usually from a politically correct perspective, i.e. how sexist they were, and how their writings reflected European chauvinism)

While I like to read comic books sometimes, it is doubtful that they should be read for credit by an English major, but, more and more, they are. Even porn is sometimes studied for credit these days.

Little Al on February 6, 2015 at 5:15 pm

LOLOL we are so far down the crapper it really ain’t funny. I’m gonna plug my fav book right now. If you’re interested (and I’m only saying this ONCE) I have fact-checked the author and he’s spot on (however ignored…). You can think I’m a nutter but facts are indeed stubborn things…and the truth is out there if you dig in.


I gotta laugh at the skanks who think that “50 Shades Of Grey” is a sexy book. What an apt illustration of how unhealthy women (and their ideas of good men) are in 2015. What is sexy about being humiliated and used by a sicko male with an unhealthy and abusive past? If you wanna see what REALLY happens check out my fav book about. It ain’t funny and it ain’t pretty.

Funny thing is that there is more sexy books for women in “Romance Novels” than that hack, sicko tome. There has been for yonks. I used to work at a book store prior to college and we sold HEAPS of those romantic novels. Strangely enough, Black women REALLY liked them. I hated them because at the time I was a militant feminist but they were far more sexy and “romantic” than that torture porn tome. Women are whack today. They don’t know how to treat men and they embrace sicko sh**. More lost than a ball in tall weeds.

I get very excited over writers who can REALLY write. Sadly, there is a paucity of that talent today but it’s like a gift when I happen upon a truly gifted writer. With that said I must caveat that my fav book above is NOT well written but the subject matter is so interesting it carries it above the fray.

My fav novelist is Ed McBain. He truly was a professor to me in how to write well (keep it simple, use humour & less is more). If you wanna write well, start with old Ed McBain (NEE:Evan Hunter). He was an amazing talent! πŸ˜€

Skunky on February 6, 2015 at 6:44 pm

I have read none of the books on the list. But then again, I’m a geek who only reads technical books. I used to read spy novels & thrillers when I was younger, but have grown out of it.

As for cats, well, I’m not a pet lover at all.

Infidel on February 6, 2015 at 6:45 pm

Don’t read as much as I used to and this reminds me I should change that.
I think this book list is about as vapid(except possibly for Kite Runner and To Kill a Mocking Bird) as you’d find in any Anglosphere country or Europe.
Last book that made an impression on me, The Sleepwalkers by Arthur Koestler.

thatsallfolks on February 6, 2015 at 7:42 pm

Fave cat video,

Take dogs and cats as I find them

thatsallfolks on February 6, 2015 at 7:52 pm

Hey, I’ll forgive you. I like dogs and cats (4). Cats….I travel all over and only they can take the mileage. Hey, they are like dogs to me.
History major…so I read and look into everything. That’s what a liberal education gives you. Don’t watch TV except on road….only news.

Gardner,Matt on February 6, 2015 at 7:55 pm

Debbie, Debbie, Debbie, what is it with you and men who like cats? Seriously, you have a block there, but that’s okay. I love you no matter what, but seriously?!?!??!!! Would you like to meet heterosexual gangsters who like cats? Will that help you figure this out? Cats are some of the world’s fiercest, most explosive athlete hunters, and house cats are no exception, believe me.

ROTFLMAO!!! You’re a riot, Debbie. I love you, I really do.

As for the article, totally agree, and only you would have the balls to say it in the fashion you did. The comments are all really good too, love to read Little Al, and Skunky is classic reading in her own right. If you have a good web site like this, you don’t need to read books. Just keep up on news articles, topics of interest and come here for fascinating reading, and intelligent, knowledge enhancing commentary.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 6, 2015 at 8:47 pm

    I agree Alfredo. Although I don’t care either way about cats, who wants to waste time reading a book that is less interesting than the articles here? Fact has become more fantastic than the fiction aisle of the local library.

    nadie on February 7, 2015 at 9:50 am

Strangely enough, Black women really liked them?

Wth is that suppose to mean. Wth is wrong with romance novels. I’m sure it gave them a great escape on how things should be, instead of dealing with whatever type of man they are dealing with.

The gall of some people and their goddamn foolish comments.

Checkmate on February 7, 2015 at 12:38 am

    Oh, I know Checkers…your brain doesn’t fire on all cylinders so that is why you couldn’t comprehend my comment.

    I’ll break it down so even a simple mind like yours can get it, ‘kay?

    The “Romance” novels I mentioned took place pre-Victorian era, or Victorian-era and sometimes even centuries before that. Now Checkers, can you wrap your deflated football brain around the thought of the status of Black people during that time? There were more Space Aliens in those books than Black people. And there were NO Space Aliens in “historical” romance novels. Not even ET.

    So, that being so, can wee-brained wonder like you wonder why a demographic of women NOT represented in said books would purchase them in a higher percentage than the white women they represented and were aimed at?

    Those with bigger brains than you may be interested in the interesting fact that Black women ENJOYED them regardless and perhaps it’s because when all was said in done the books were aimed at the stimulating the brain, fantasies and private parts of chicks…and all those work the same in the said target fans no matter what the colour (when applicable) is.

    Now you can go back to reading your “Dick & Jane” books, dummy.

    Skunky on February 7, 2015 at 10:31 am

And person whoever you are on your snooty high horse, you most likely read Piers Anthony novels.

Checkmate on February 7, 2015 at 12:40 am

Dang….I was thinking one of the Game of Thrones book would make such a list. Wow….sad.

Rex on February 7, 2015 at 1:16 am

“Women are bigger pigs than men. Yay, feminism.”

Nailed it.

That’s been the glorious result of the feminist agenda. Men are pigs without women forcing them to grow up. Now, the women are worse than the men. The fox is running the chicken coop.

That’s why we have an ever-shrinking amount of marriages, of those that DO marry we see 50% divorce rate, and the “blended” family (that never blends no matter how much selfish moms and dads like to kid themselves) has become the norm.

PitandPen on February 7, 2015 at 8:26 am

I had a reply to “Checkers” and DS will be able to post it once she is back, so stay tuned…

Skunky on February 7, 2015 at 10:34 am

    Like I said. We even get suspense, now, thanks to Skunky.

    nadie on February 7, 2015 at 10:44 am

If they had simply made it the top selling fiction in the US for that time period,there would be some considerable shake-ups, given that the Harry Potter releases made record smashes- #5 sold 5 million copies in day 1; #6 managed 6.9 million.

Opening it up to all fiction novels would dethrone the Shades of Gray from top spots, but would also surely have Twilight represented. The presence of the Christian novel The Shack is at least a glimmer of hope, along with The Kite Runner and To Kill A Mockingbird.

Robert on February 7, 2015 at 1:26 pm

The trashy women who love these novels get REALLY upset when they are told what they truly are: sluts.

I don’t ever remember the word “slut” being considered a curse word, but now it is bleeped out on television. It must hit too close to home for these women.

John M. on February 7, 2015 at 1:56 pm

Actually, slut is now seen as an accomplishment, just as porn is viewed as a “viable career option” for “the empowered woman.”

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 7, 2015 at 2:52 pm

It also seems there’d be a correlation between women who read the garbage that was in that Top 10 list, and their voting for Obama. You think . . . ?

ConcernedPatriot on February 7, 2015 at 2:53 pm

I don’t know why you’re so down on cats,Ms. Schlussel. I like them as much as I do dogs and I’ve owned them both. For me,cats are easier for me to take care of. As for the books,I’ve haven’t read ANY of them,except for “To Kill a Mockingbird.” And that was in high school.

Ghostwriter on February 7, 2015 at 2:56 pm

Debbie, don’t did on Rush.He turnede on to you years ago.

kado on February 7, 2015 at 3:25 pm

Wow how far we have fallen. No Grisham or Stephen King books. No classics by Asimov or Bradbury. It is a shame how far we have fallen. Bad enough many do nor read, but the ones that do are bypassing great literature or garbage.

Then again just think if the music business where great artists never got or get recognition. Whike bubble gum garbage gets all the air play. So much good music is lost in the wilderness whike we are bombarded by dreck which gets Grammys.

Glen Benjamin on February 7, 2015 at 3:44 pm

Yes, Mr. Benjamin, indeed regarding the music business. As I said on another thread, Katy Perry wouldn’t have a career if she looked like Lena Dunham. The mainstream of our culture is a toilet. Anyone who wants to hear real music has to look for groups like Moth To Flame Jazz on line or stuff like that.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 7, 2015 at 4:04 pm

Debbie, The Kite Runner is a fine well written book and has zero to do with Jihad, anti Israeli or American sentiment. If it were anti American or Israeli, I would be the first to condemn it. Needless to say, To Kill A Mockingbird is a worthy book and one of the few novels thats movie version is as good as the book. The rest proves your point. A disgrace.

Susan on February 7, 2015 at 4:31 pm

BTW, all the talk about To Kill a Mockingbird reminds me:

Do people remember the movie that several of the Turner Movie Channels played before and after the Superbowl?

The Help

I guess the adulation of To Kill a Mockingbird isn’t enough to remind us, especially those of us who are white males, how racist we are, and how racist we have been. We need additional reminders so we won’t get too absorbed in sports and forget how we must expunge ourselves of our racist feelings and actions.

Little Al on February 7, 2015 at 5:49 pm

(a) All white people (men especially) are inherently racist;
(b) All men (especially white men) are latent homosexuals;
(c) All heterosexual sex is rape.

More American Left mantras to live by. They’ve all been around for decades.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 7, 2015 at 7:17 pm

The “mainstream” books these days are mostly pure dreck. I DID burn through “Angels & Demons” & “The DaVinci Code” in about 24 hrs each. For not other reason than they’re good, well written stories. As for the rest of my fiction preferences, I’ve ALWAYS been a Tom Clancy & Vince Flynn fan. And its a shame they’re both gone. I’ll ALWAYS grab ANY Ted Bell book (think of them as a British version of Vince Flynn/”Mitch Rapp” kinda books), as well as ANY Brad Thor & WEB Griffin books. After those, I’ll stick to books like “Washington’s Spies,” about the Culper spy ring during the Revolution. EXCELLENT book. A MUST READ.

Cicero's Ghost (NB) on February 7, 2015 at 7:59 pm

Dear Debbie: I love my cats. I also have loved my dogs. But cats let you go away for the weekend cheaply.

The best pet I ever had was my Dog, John Cade. He was a happy, active dog, but he gave great calm to his owners (look up the name, it’s famous and it makes the joke.)

My best cat was “Cassius J. Cat.”He was a kitten with a “lean and hungry look,” but he grew into a beauty with the sweetest personality and was as affectionate as a dog.

As for the books, this does not surprise me. For readers of this blog, if you want a novel that outlines what Debbie is always talking about as a future projection, get Colonel Tom Kratman’s “Caliphate.” It is free on Kindle, but worth 10 bucks, if not more. Tom’s book, if the world ran According to Debbie, would be 1,2, and 3 on the list.

Thanks for the excusal comment, Debbie, because I love your work AND my cats. I am raising two adopted kids with my wife of almost 20 years, and am hetero and Conservative and gun owning and meat eating. I also love my cats. As well as my dog “Bama.”

Occam's Tool on February 7, 2015 at 8:08 pm

By the way, Jenner’s transition is easily explained—if you lived with the Kardashians for decades, you would want to cut your balls off, too! πŸ™‚

BJ was indeed breathing in the fumes of a lot of estrogen those years. It got to his brain and caused a rewiring, which is now going to cause a voluntary restructuring, known in Limbaughan terms as an addidictomy. This will result in BJ becoming true to his initials.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 7, 2015 at 8:29 pm

BJ spent many years breathing in an atmosphere where the ratio of estrogen to oxygen, nitrogen, etc., was excessive. He will now become true to his initials as he heads for the process known as a chopadictomy.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 7, 2015 at 8:36 pm

Dear Debbie: I want to sqy again, 50 Shades of Grey is not a glorified Harlequin Romance. I never read a Harlequin Romance, but I read Candlelight Romances and Red Rose Romances, and the people in there behave BETTER than that.

Miranda Rose Smith on February 8, 2015 at 4:16 am

It demonstrates that there are some really creepy women out there.

Worry on February 8, 2015 at 6:08 am

“He will now be true to his initials” now that was funny. Good one.

Question is, what happens if he is a straight tranny? A tranny attracted to women. Yes society has become pure sewage. Trannies love it, because a man who was once a mans man will be their hero and give courage to all the other brain damaged possessed people out there.

Interrogative on February 8, 2015 at 1:19 pm

“Possessed” is indeed the operative term. The whole world is more upside down than ever. Satan is furiously stirring the pot because his time is extremely short. And the whole creation is suffering as a result. We humans are some kind of bunch, we are.

At least a hippo knows its a hippo and knows it has to stay a hippo.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 8, 2015 at 1:28 pm

Then it’s set. I will start writing the Great American Slut Book, sell millions of copies, and retire to the Bahamas.

Enjoy your Islamic smut programming, sheep. Americans are being programmed to accept Islamic style submission.

Donovan on February 8, 2015 at 6:23 pm

Yes, Donovan, we are for sure, . . .

a nation well prepared for slavery.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 8, 2015 at 7:32 pm

Pretty ridiculous assumptions you’re making about women readers. Of the approximately 320 million people currently in the US, approximately 250 million are adults 18 and older. Roughly half would be female, which gives us about 125 million women. If 7.3 million copies of Fifty Shades of Trash are sold, that means that fewer than 6% of the female adult population is reading this garbage. So no, most women are not a “bunch of low-life dummies”. I would suggest not making broad assumptions about women based on the low values/morals of the reading habits of a small percent. I personally would never read such garbage and no one I know with whose reading habits I am familiar would read it, either.

Kathleen on February 9, 2015 at 4:32 pm

    Actually, Kathleen, Debbie pointed out that the vast majority of sales were electronic: “the Fifty Shades books sold a total of 45 million in the United States.” I don’t see where Debbie got the 15.7 million, as the list says 7.3. Anyway, the ratio, using your own numbers, would be 45/125=36%. That’s pretty darned high.

    skzion on February 10, 2015 at 5:05 pm

I don’t know where you get your ideas about cat lovers. All of the men I know that love and have cats are tough mofos. I’m talking cage fighters, boxers, power lifters, veterans,hockey players, correction officers, and retired correction officers. None of us are homos. I am a veteran and a retired correction officer and I have three cats.

RT on February 9, 2015 at 11:02 pm

You tell her, RT. Lord knows I’ve tried, that’s why I said she has a block about it. But Debbie’s not only got a great web site, but she’s cute, funny and lovable, too. I’m trying to give her a pass on this one, but every time she does it, I grit my teeth. ROTFLMAO!!!

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 9, 2015 at 11:14 pm

Cats are feminine. They’re Independent which makes them great and having a dog is akin to having a child but make no mistake everyone knows cats a feminine, just as pink is a feminine color.

All that b.s, Real men wear pink blah blah blah. It may look good on you, but by no means is it masculine. A deep cut V-Neck, feminine just as a cat.

Stop lying to yourself on February 9, 2015 at 11:27 pm

Come back, Debbie! Where have you gone?

Jack on February 10, 2015 at 11:23 am

I’ve only read “The DaVinci Code” on the list. Most books I read are bios, military history and fiction, and action stories. Has anyone entertained the though that if a man had written the “50 Shades” trilogy, would it be considered porn instead of erotic fiction, and would women still by them?

John D. Holliday on February 10, 2015 at 12:27 pm

Don’t get upset about Israel hater Kayla Miller being snuffed out by IS Islamic terrorists.

An “Open Doctor” idiot who goes to work in Greater Barbaristan deserves her fate.

Actually, IS is taking our trash for us – the Darwin Award candidates who refuse to recognize the reality of Islam.

People keep being shocked. The more pertinent question to be asked is why?

NormanF on February 10, 2015 at 12:48 pm

I am reading Proust now.

I am more dismayed about our intellectual class, which is particularly unintellectual.

After hearing Jindal’s speech today from the other day, he doesn’t stand a chance in hell and neither do repubs, same tired speeches that the world isn’t interested in hearing.
Religion? Give it a rest. It is everyones’right to choose a religion, but do you honestly think repubs are going to garner votes like this? Ixnay. Same tired mantra. Better learn how to adapt, or you will be a forever forgotten party.

Not a Chance in Hell on February 10, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    Please explain your definition of ‘adapt’ Not A Chance

    Jack on February 11, 2015 at 11:01 am

So you read the books? But every woman who has read them is a moron… What if every person who has read them was just trying to “keep up with pop culture”? SMH

Matt on February 11, 2015 at 10:33 pm

What do you mean “we’re a nation of…”? Someone should remind Debbie that she is a Jew and hence not an American. These filthy parasites, proved by 50 years of cultural Marxism, are more dangerous to America than any other force on the planet.

John Dolby on February 12, 2015 at 7:51 am

    John, thank you for the Stormfront perspective.

    skzion on February 12, 2015 at 8:32 am

Can’t agree with the cat and poodle jabs. Winston Churchill had pet cats throughout his life and also a favored poodle named Rufus.

Dave Turson on February 12, 2015 at 12:09 pm

Great review if this list Debbie! I could not even read 50 shades. It was like trying to drink jello water. I only had it because someone gave it too me. And Kite Runner? I watched it with my husband who is a Chaldean Christian from Iraq And recommended it to my employers who are Christians from Iran. All of them reported back to me that this type of a sick rape of boys by the Muslim priests(Mullahs) is absolutely true and happens To this day. So not sure if the movie adheres to the book but I am told that the movie absolutely adheres to the reality of what goes on in these sick f***** up Muslim countries. The fact that this book is one of the best sellers shows how f***** up this country is because people read it and still they defend Islam as a religion of peace instead of the religion of pedophiles that it actually is.

Bellasmile on February 12, 2015 at 5:13 pm

Men do read fiction.

But they like serious literature, world literature. That’s what I read as a young man: the greatest works in the world.

I happen to love cats and I think they’re clean and loving pets. I love dogs, too. I have the German Shepherd.

I don’t think I’m any less masculine b/c of my preferences. However, I stay well enough away from stupid, boring and vapid works.

“Fifty Shades Of Grey” will never be on my reading list.
