This is old news, but I’ve just run across it so indulge me.
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.1
Can you believe this guy? Even leaving aside what he’s talking about when he says he doesn’t want a book’s autograph, most people are content to avoid the things they don’t like or can’t do. Kanye has to go a step further and be proud about not reading. Because some novels are wordy and self-absorbed, he’s not going to read at all. Not just the novels he doesn’t like, but all novels and all books. Being so vehement about it makes me wonder if he can read at all. He wouldn’t be the first to try to hide his lack of ability.
Don’t be like Kanye. Learn to read, and use the ability to its fullest. Read!
His poor children…
