5 Books As Shitty Internet Headlines

Every day we are barraged with content, and headlines that beg us to read or watch something. Facebook’s news feed is full of these little stories, and to get our attention the headlines are becoming increasingly harder not to click. The sole purpose is to get you to click the headline and go over to the site, so they can show bigger visitor numbers to companies in order to sell more ads. (This by the way, is how the internet works, and why news sites are full of celebrity gossip).

I decided to turn this weapon against the destroyers of modern culture. I will use these powers to try to entice people to read more. Here are some of my favorite books, along with the shitty internet headline you can use to get your less-cultured friends to check them out.

      1. It has been ages since I read The Handmaid’s Tale, so a re-read is probably in order.

        The ending of the Life of Pi made me cry, both when I read it and watched it. What had you thought you missed?


        1. Well, I though the ending meant that he was the tiger, and that when he meets the man later on , on another boat and the tiger attacks him, it was in fact Pi that attacked him (and, erm, digested him).

          Now I’m not sure if this is the correct assumption.


          1. Hmmm, that’s the assumption I had, too. After both reading and watching. Not sure why you thought that wasn’t the case…now I’ll have to re-watch the movie! :)
