What is the thinnest book you own?

Post by Abbydan14 » 13 Oct 2014, 10:50

I am not at home right now I can't actually tell you for sure, but I want to say its The Perks of Being a Wallflower. That book was very easy to read and very small but still very good. I actually did enjoy the movie better though.

Mine is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. It's 115 pages, if you count the Afterword. I might re-read it in a few weeks to get myself into the holiday spirit.

Heddatron by Ben Brantley. I hate it but I had to buy it for class last year and I can't get rid of it. It's more of a play bill than an actual book, really.

Mine is The Ethical Characteristics of Today's Average Politician. The title has more words than the whole book. :lol:

Lady of the Camellias by Alexandre Dumas, I think. It's very short.

The Elements of Style. It is very small, I needed to buy it for a writing class. It is loaded with so much information in such a small amount of pages. Probably less than 100, but very tiny in size as well.

The thinnest book I own is Great Short Poems edited by Paul Negri. As the title suggests, it is a collection of poems and I received this in a literature class I took. It has probably about a hundred poems in it, but is only 54 pages long.

I took a picture. But it's in Japanese, so I don't know what it says... not even sure what the title of the book is... 8)

I used to have this book as well :) it certainly is very small!

I am not really sure this qualifies. The book was called "Everything There Is To Know About Women". It had 200 blank pages and no pictures. It wasn't small but certainly had the least content in it. :-)
