Times Top Books for Boys
Oh everyone's just ah-flutter over the Times Online listing of Top Books for Boys. "Boys" herein meaning anyone happening to sport a Y chromosome since the list is fairly useless at sorting the selections into any kind of category. As a result you end up with Calvin and Hobbes on the one hand and How to Avoid a Wombat's Bum on the other. I'm suspicious of some of the inclusions as well. Vampirates? A "top" book? Really? And who on earth would recommend the last volume of A Series of Unfortunate Events all by its lonesome? Some judicious editing could have done wonders with this one.
