oh no I've not read any books

I saw this article in the Observer about the poll for the best non-American novel of the last 25 years. It is a bit worrying as I have basically not read any of them mostly. It is like that game Humiliation, where you have to own up to importint books you have not read, only I would win, as I never read anything that says on the front ‘Powerful, moving - a tour de force’ or ‘The greatest novelist of his generation’. I read books with things on the front like ‘Choose your own adventure!’ or ‘Fossilised fish-hooks! What wizzo scrapes will Jennings and his chums get into next?’.

I will now have to do some emergency reading in case I meet any English teachers that tell me off and write on my face in red felt tip ‘0/10 See Me’.
