small mindeed and petty-an insult to all writers
on 26 February 2014
In a recent piece written by Ms. Shepherd in the Huffington Post she declared that it was ok to judge a book and its author without reading it. Gee, most of us who love books declare ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ but Ms. Shepherd takes it the other way saying you can judge without having even cracked the spine.
So be it.
By her own standard, put down in print Ms. Shepherd has said it’s ok to judge a book and author without reading what they write. Ok by her standards then I continue. I have not read one word of this book but I have read Ms. Shepherd’s essay on Huffington and if that is anything to go on her writing is self absorbs, short sighted and not worth the time to read a single word more.
