Worst Books of 2008

Here’s a twist on the old bestseller / award winner list:
EW.com’s 5 Worst Books of 2008
1. CHASING HARRY WINSTON, Lauren Weisberger
2. THE LACE READER, 
Brunonia Barry
3. THE GARGOYLE, 
Andrew Davidson
4. BRIGHT SHINY MORNING, James Frey
5. A WOLF AT THE TABLE, Augusten Burroughs 

This could be a fun web survey on the library’s website in the January doldrums! What was the worst book you read in 2008? (I suppose, if pressed, you could also ask for the best one too, but that’s not nearly as gossipy and mean.) It’d make a good blog, poll, wiki, or e-mail format.
It’s a small community recommendation / warning list. You might have to edit out the required reading at the local high school or put it into a hall-of-fame!
Quotes could be fun – eg. “I was so glad I borrowed this awful book at the library, I’d have been furious if I’d paid good money for it!”
