Day 2 – 30 Day Book Challenge – Least Favorite Book

30 Day Book Challenge – Day 2

What is your least favorite book?

I know everybody will think I’m nuts, crazy, and have quite possibly no taste in literary genius, but my least favorite book isss- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson!!!!

I tried and tried to read this book and just could not get into it..usually by the first few pages I know if I’m going to like a book or not, this one I kept reading and reading and well I hated it.  I have read some tricky books in my time ,  100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez  which I loved, I’ve even read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

But this Dragon Tattoo book, well,  I just couldn’t get past page 132, and I’m not fond of the cover either. 😦

A good friend of mine gave me all THREE of them, and they just sit collecting dust, she has read all three and loved them and had suggested that I get at least 1/2 way through the first one and then I’d be hooked, well I made to about chapter 5 that’s it!!

Sorry guys but this is my Least Favorite Book. 🙂

Have you ever wonder what the WD in WD-40 stands for?

The name was lifted right out chemist Norm Larsen‘s laboratory notebook.

Way back in 1953, he was trying to concoct an anti-corrosion formula, which worked on the basic principle of displacing water.

On his 40th try, Larsen finally got it right.  Hence the name WD-40.

It literally means Water Displacer, 40th try.
