What do you call a wall-banged kindle book?

Post by Misfit » Mon June 27th, 2011, 2:28 pm

OK, your mission, should you choose to accept it is to coin the phrase for kindle wall bangers. We cannot wall bang our kindles, but there are still going to be books so bad that just hitting the delete button to remove from device is sufficient.

Ideas, anyone?

Perhaps not too funny, but just try to avoid buying books you don't like!
