From “Sh*t My Dad Says” to “The Alchemist,” Scribd has released its list of the most popular book in each of the 50 states, according to an article in Parade Magazine.

If you’re not familiar with Scribd, it’s an e-book subscription, similar to Netflix, that allows users to download unlimited books to read for $8.99 a month. It boasts of having more than 300,000 books from more than 900 publishers in its vast library, and is compatible with all electronic devices.

What’s the most read book in the state of Massachusetts? It's “Anybody Out There?” by Marian Keyes.

So of course we want to know how many of our Patch readers have read it and what you thought of the book. Chime in with your answer and share your reviews in the comments section below.

Janet: She is free to make any statement she wishes. Her statement will stand or fall based upon its validity.............As for yours I don't feel MB's statement was irrelevant since the question asked by the author was, "What's the most popular book?" That allows the reader to then respond to the answer. He gave his relevant answer. Now if the question was, "What do you think about this book?" Well, then you would have a point. "Stupid?" You're the one making the charge, the onus is on yo to prove it was stupid, not just claim it to be stupid. You'll have a tough time since MA is a heavily populated progressive state that has probably read a book or two regarding the redistribution of wealth disguised as govt. programs. "faux?" Nothing faux about it, I believe he was sincere despite his statement being in the context of a humor.........I feel fine, thank you. How are you?

I would feel a whole lot better if PATCH actually worked out the glitches for replying. Other than that I am just wonderful. Yes, take that literally. You just finished saying that people can make any statement they want and now you want me to prove what i post? Shall I wail as I cry out "IT'S NOT FAIR!"?

Janet: Great. Good to hear it. Sun's out, that helps. You can make any statement that you like but then expect someone to challenge you on your posit. If you cannot prove your assertion, then on a public forum read by gazillions of people (not), your fallacies become exposed. Feel free to to do what you want, it's a free country, but if it were me, I'd hate to be humiliated publicly over something I could've easily fact-checked before posting.
