“Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed… I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph. I am a proud non-reader of books. I like to get information from doing stuff like actually talking to people and living real life,” the caps-locked MC told Reuters. Is that why the book is a mere “52 pages–some blank, others with just a few words”–even though he had a co-writer on the project? Is one supposed to carry it around in public as a way to say “hey, guys, I’m an information-getting person who wants to do stuff like actually talk to you”? I guess it’s less dorky than a “FREE HUGS” T-shirt… [Reuters]
