Perusing the books toward the bottom of the bin, I came across titles that had been given to us when the kids were born. Frankly, they're books I don't like. I thought I'd give them another try, but a few pages in, I remembered why I didn't like them.
Since I don't want to take too much time away from D.E.A.R. to write about all the reasons I don't like these books, I thought I'd just list them (both adult and kid books). And invite you to list your least favorite books - especially ones that seem to be popular to everyone else.
Happy Birthday, Ms. Cleary - with thanks for making every day at my house a D.E.A.R. day!
I do not like them on a bike.
I do not like them hung on hooks.
I do not, do not like these books.
