The Pointless Book (Dorking, 2014)

For those of you who don’t like reading, this could be the “book” for you, just based on title alone. “What are you reading right now?” You: “The Pointless Book.” Ha! Actually, The Pointless Book isn’t even a book, it’s an activity book. “Written” — credited on the cover as “Started by” Alfie Deyes, a British vlogger and YouTuber. The book contains pointless tasks such as baking a cake out of mud or creating a time capsule (that’s pointless?)

So here’s the funny part: The Pointless Book actually topped “The Times of London’s” Bestseller list. At a signing (? it’s an activity book) in London’s Piccadilly Circus, the 8,000 screaming fans (? it’s an activity book!) resulted in road closures and forced police helicopters (?! it’s an activity book!!) to be used. All of this forced Deyes to reschedule the signing at the ExCel (an international conventions center) London. It’s an activity book!!!
