Books that make you dumb…

I found this tid-bit over at Joanne Jacob’seducation blog.  Someone went through Facebook and took note of the lists of the most popular books broken down by what college the user represented.  They then downloaded the SAT/ACT scores for the colleges and graphed the results into a Books That Make You Dumb chart.  Good fun!

Smart books: Lolita and 100 Years of Solitude

Dumb books: The Color Purple and The Purpose Driven Life

*And by “good fun” I mean that it is fun to look at but I know there are many other factors that make people dumb and some smart people enjoy reading crap. 

**Also, I refuse to link to Facebook because I’m pretty sure it’s just a portal to Hell.
