That one sounds interesting. I'm always interested in things people write when they believe each word may be their last.

For a minimal extra charge I can give you a glowing or not so glowing review.

I can think of a few things I wouldn't read, but they're all in the "disgusting" category—tales of pedophilia, incest, racist books; that kind of garbage. Other than that, I'm pretty much like anyone else who works in the oldest profession in the world. I'll read anything if the pay is right.

Too big, not that interesting material until very end. I'll wait for movie. Facebook and moneyball movies were entertaining. Compressed this could be too.

I agree but if I was paid to read only boring books (by my definition) I would possibly not last too long.

although I read mystery detective books where the perpetrator of the above acts is tracked down and arrested or killed etc. but books that glorify or appear (my opinion only) to appeal to pedophiles, rapists, sadists, or abusers in general, just too gross for me.

Yes, there's that.

I wish I had the patience to read math books, but, well, I don't.

Anything described with the word paranormal might also be a problem.

I'm afraid this post did lead me to search.overdrive.com. No library I have a card for has it, at least as an eBook. But I did see Trenton, New Jersey has it. Their out of area card is $30, and I'm there from time to time. Maybe next year.

Now, if the book was written by a politician from my own country, that would be a much harder sell.

I share your dislike. I picked up the first volume of Piers Anthony's "Bio of a Space Tyrant" series as a freebie. Very early in the book, the protagonist describes being forced to watch the rape of his sister. If I remember correctly, he finds that he enjoys it. I stopped reading then and there and deleted the book.

I'm not going to double-check this. Just too disgusting.

I've heard this series described as a science fiction classic, but I can find more enjoyable things for me to read.

Ulysses by James Joyce, Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon. I mean, I guess if you offered me enough money, I would read all the words in the order in which they are written, but if I had to say what the book meant or even what happened in order to get the money, I probably would not get paid.

It's not that hard to describe a book, check Woody Allen:

"I took a speed reading course and read 'War and Peace' in twenty minutes. It involves Russia."

I have actually quit my book-club because I hated being forced to read something I didn't like that much. I don't mind reading what somebody else suggested, but I won't finish it when I don't like it. I don't think money will change this.

It's only the first of two volumes. Her memoirs continues in Path to Power where she starts from the beginning. My library has both.

How about books one wishes one could pay to unread? For me that would be Mike Resnick's _The Branch_.
