    It is horrifying that somebody with such awful taste apparently feels confident enough to post a list about books.

    Awful. All this so called literature (besides Harry Potter and Narnia) would make the complimentary barf bag on the plane a necessity. And calling Twilight a “worthy read” made the list creator lose all credibility to me.
