So, I just found out that Fool
will debut on the New York Times hardcover bestseller list
at #4. And I’m very grateful to you readers for that.
But I want to say this:
#4: Fool. Totally funny book with tons of redeeming references to English literature, but not so many that it ruins the murders and the shagging.
#3: Stephenie Meyer: Her vampires are sparkly. Which I think we can all agree is wrong. Okay, maybe not in this book, but still.
#2: James Patterson: He keeps a large stable of Vietnamese children chained in his basement who actually write his books for him. In his defense, though, he goes down there and describes sunlight to them and gives them a Mountain Dew if they've turned in their book for that week.
#1: John Grisham: Has a law degree, and therefore could totally get another job, while I have no other skills, so this writey thing is it for me.
So it's, you know, unfair.
