    Boring books... do textbooks count? I'd have to say "Rabbit, Run" by John Updike. It was horrible yet intriguing all at the same time. Had to read it for my intro English class about 4 years ago. Upon reading it, you'd think that the author had absolutely no grasp of punctuation, or even grammar in some cases. *lol* It was like a bunch of rambling thoughts. And talk about small details... The car radio literally rambled -- "*song name* *song name* *commercial* *news* *weather* *sports* *song* *another song* *more news* *more weather*"....and on and on.

    I'd also have to say that the "Lord of the Rings" books are boring. I'm on book two, stuck somewhere in the middle of the Ents meeting. I've been there for two years. Maybe three. Love the movies, though. *lol*
    *almost 4 years later*

    OMG! That is the same point where I stopped with reading. But I also loved the movies.

    Well, I already posted in this thread (here) but I like to add that The Face by Dean Koontz was so not appealing to me that I stopped reading after 15 or 20 pages. And that was my third attempt trying to read it.

    Maybe other books of Koontz are more interesting to me, but I never going to give this book a fourth chance.

    @Lovely, I had to read that too. We also had to do a scene from it. I read about 10 pages and got bored.

    Also The Hobbit-J.R Tolkein was really boring...

    We had to do presentations for english this year and two people had those stories..after hearing about them I kinda want to read them..i think it would be my kind of story. I read Frankenstein which was REALLY GOOD!

    Boring book...probably the Great Gatsby just because we had to read it in school so it lost my attention because i didnt really care. I wasnt thrilled to go home and read it. I do remember trying to read this one story years ago and i just couldnt start it..i read the first couple pages like over and over but i couldnt focus so i didnt know what was happening. so i think it was by Clive Cussler and my dad said he is a great author i just couldnt get into it..oh well
    im about to read Twilight and it looks good so we will see

    For me it'd probably be The Ennead by Jan Mark. It wasn't even very long, but the way it was written made it horribly dull.
