|Confessions of a Jackass|
I hate the thought of books being burned, censored, or otherwise abused. I have, in fact, made numerous posts here on Book Chase over the past five years ripping into those who dare do that kind of thing - for any reason whatsoever.
But I am weak. Worse than that, I am guilty of hypocritical behavior, for I admit that there is at least one book that I would burn in a second. It's not that the book's content is worthless (although it most certainly is); it's because the book and its "author" might actually influence some little girl out there to emulate the behavior being celebrated under this hideous book jacket. So, if by some fluke, I come across a free copy of this little loser's book, it will not survive long in my hands.
I'm not going to reward Gallery Books buy buying myself a burn-copy, but if I spot one that's already been tossed away by some remorseful "reader", I will gladly put a match to that one. Burn this book...please. No, really.
