If you are a celebrity obsessed freak this is the perfect book buying month. The 20 bestselling books on Amazon is clouded with celebs’ books. Tina Fey, Maria Menounos. Gwyneth Paltrow and Shirley MacLaine all settled themselves on the top spots. Oh, I almost forgot about little ol’ Katie Couric; as if her name alone can’t conjure up numbers someone on her team decides to stir up allegations of her persuading a past tv co-worker for her own talk show next year. The things we do for attention these days.
What I’m disturbed about is that my fav author Sister Souljah’s ‘Midnight and The Meaning Of Love wasn’t on that list. Everyone has their own opinion but really, what could any of those celebrities tell in their books that we already don’t know or can’t Google? They probably had ghostwriters anyway.
As a matter of fact hardly any fiction was on the top 20. There are other bestsellers list but come on now, Amazon is the creme de la creme of the writer world and you would be faking the funk if you said that it doesn’t matter about being on some ‘stupid list’.
I will still though, I can’t imagine doing anything else.
Peace and luv!
