Do you remember this quote from Kanye West? "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."
So, even though his mother was a university English professor, Kanye hates books. OK. He can even pretend to use really bad grammar above even though I assure you his mom would have beat the living crap out of him if he spoken like that in front of her. Some people don't like books. I understand. Generally however, those people don't make public statements that are read by millions of kids and then have that same person come and try and sell us a f**king book.
If you hate books so damn much then when in the efff are you selling books to people? If you are not a fan of books why did you write a book? If you are a proud non-reader of books, did you in face ever read this book you are selling?
In case you have not figured it out from my rant yet, Kanye has a new book out entitled, "Thank You And You're Welcome." Just 52 pages long but retailing at probably $45, Kanye is just trying to find new ways to separate the public from their wallets and to give all their money to Kanye.
According to Reuters the book "has 52 pages -- some blank, others with just a few words -- and offers his optimistic philosophy on life. One two-page section reads, "Life is 5% what happens and 95% how you react!" Another page reads "I hate the word hate!"
Really sounds like people are going to get their money's worth. Thanks Kanye, And You're Welcome. I guess there won't be any book readings by Kanye of his new work? Oh, in case you were wondering. The guy above in the picture with Kanye? That is the co-author of the book. 52 pages most blank, and he needed help.
