If y'all had to set a book on fire...

I'm not going to bother thinking of a hypothetical for this one. You just have to pick one book to sacrifice to flame. To appease to gods or to get into a hip bonfire party or because you're going to freeze to death in an abandoned library that just happens to have ALL THE BOOKS.

Which book would you choose, and why? No holds barred, it can be any kind of book. But why are you burning the one you pick?


Inspired by this comic, which also involves book destruction: [link]

Twilight. Unless it was to appease the gods. They might smite me if such a thing was used in holy sacrifice.

Twilight. The world would be better with one less Twilight book. Or 50 Shades of Grey. And I shall laugh while doing it.

50 Shades of Grey. With a hint of scented candle. :iconpervylenplz:

Well of course I have the usual urge to burn Twilight, but there is also a book that depressed me so much that I could start crying at any moment. It's a Dutch book called 'Het fluisterboek', translated it means 'the book of whispers'. It's about a girl who twice tries to commit suicide. I hated it.

Talisman of Troy by Valerio Massimo Manfredi I have never been so bored reading a book :stare: I think I even imagined something else happening since it was so boring.

since everyone already said the obvious Twilight and Fifty Shades, this is difficult. Maybe Dante's Inferno because that book scared the hell out of me and it would also be pretty ironic to light it on fire.

Heh, I liked Dante's Inferno (and the rest of The Divine Comedy) but I agree that the book scared the living hell out of me, and I'm agnostic.

Yeah, they're pretty scary, all right.
