My dislike for doctors extends into literature, evidently.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas.

Best books overload.

I've been blogging this month over at the Reader's Advisor Online, and one of the features we're running is a list of the Best Books Lists that get published all over the place this time of year. (Holla, by the way, to Largehearted Boy, who compiles the Mother of All Best Books Lists list.)

As a result, I am burnt out on Best Books list. I always preferred a Worst List, myself, but there's not as many of those (although I enjoyed this one and this one). I know we've covered this a bit in our Citizen Reader Survey of 2011, but let it all out? What, in your opinion, were the worst books of 2011?

I've got a couple of suggestions: Ann Patchett's State of Wonder, of course. Also, Alan Jacobs's The Pleasure of Reading in an Age of Distraction. I wasn't overfond of Caitlin Kelly's Malled: My Unintentional Career in Retail.

Now it's your turn!
