GQ’s 21 Books You Don’t Have to Read

Is there an award for worst lists done by a website? GQ lists 21 books (like Catch 22, Dracula, Slaughterhouse V) and declare them overrated and give alternatives.

The only thing I found good about this list is I didn’t know some of the alternative book titles they supplied. Come on GQ. Be best!

In 2016 Mrs Trump was accused of plagiarising parts of a speech from a 2008 address by Michelle Obama.

Mrs Trump’s online safety booklet was initially billed on the initiative’s website as being “by First Lady Melania Trump and the Federal Trade Commission”.

After similarities to the Obama-era edition were picked up online, the text was revised to describe it as a “Federal Trade Commission booklet, promoted by First Lady Melania Trump”.

In typical Trumpian fasion, Melania is blaming the media:
