Top 10 Books You’re Embarrassed to Admit You’ve Read

I found the recent posting on Book Riot very interesting.  The post entitled "Top 10 Books You’re Embarrassed to Admit You’ve Read' shared a poll conducted by Book Riot according to the post...

In our [Book Riot] latest reader poll, we asked you to fess up to the books you’ve read but would rather no one know about. 581 Riot readers answered the call, listing 380 unique titles. There’s a lot of variety to be found in the full set of responses, but your readerly shame is undeniably concentrated around a handful of titles.-Book Riot

Personally, I found one of my favorite books on the list, Atlas Shrugged  by Ayn Rand and horror of horrors my beloved Atlas Shrugged  is also on the MOST HATED list as well-see the Venn Diagram below for additional titles that overlapped on the MOST HATED list.  What do you make of the poll? Any of your favorites on the list?  I have to say, I am not embarrassed in the least to admit I am a fan of Atlas Shrugged.  Do you feel this way about any of the titles?  Let us know here at The Things You Can Read!

Happy reading to all! ☮ 

Happy Reading
The Things You Can Read!
Believe In Truth, Beauty, Freedom, Love, and the Power of Books!
