@Steve - I was pretty sure I would found you with the "B..." answer. ...and I was right:D

 

@Shàîmae - I did like The Little Prince book. Many people like it, but not me. I found it to be too depressed to me, to much thinking "between the lines".

  Hmmm.... not so easy to say.   I have learned something useful from books that I ended up thinking were    published crap on the part of an author.    One example is   "A Separate Peace" 

 by John Knowles

 

  Keeping in mind that you   cited   "books" and not merely novels, I have a short list of books

that I regard as useless  publications.

 

"The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne,   "Seat of the Soul" by Gary Zukav  (both are "New Age" books)

"Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by  Betty Edwards 

 (the product of "fad"  marketing gimmicks)

 

  There are also many books that I disagree with philosophically, but I enjoyed them and was glad to have read them and studied them; but books that I wish I have never read, because they are

either entirely irrational  or non-factual are the  New Age books.

Steveh, that is very unkind to bring another person's religion into the subject. I read "Of Mice and Men" when I was younger and I remember struggling to find the purpose of it. I thought it was just depressing but some of my friends loved it. :) As long as you can get the author's point through his or her material, it is worth reading.
