Here is this week’s Booking Through Thursday:
Do you read celebrity memoirs? Which ones have you read or do you want to read? Which nonexistent celebrity memoirs would you like to see?
I’m going to sound like a total snob here, but no, NO, NO and NO to celebrity memoirs. Largely this has to do with a disdain for celebrity culture, especially current movie/music stars. I hear enough about celebrities from television or on the radio. Plus I suspect most are ghostwritten. The gossip aspect doesn’t appeal to me. There are also certain celebrities who seem to show disdain for books, at least one, Kanye West, whom I would hope to never hear from again.
If some celebrity were to, say, write a memoir that actually illuminates a real aspect of his or her life buried underneath the glitz and glitter, then maybe.
Anyhow, all of you . . . just leave Britney alone (sob!), please please please please leave Britney alone ! (sob!)
