Books: Literature or Complete Bollocks?

Everywhere I go, book shops loom out and try to attract my attention with deals on the latest Dean Koontz books and autobiographies of someone who people have only heard of because he was on Big Brother. But why do we choose to read these autobiographies of nobodies? Is it because we believe that there is a "life lesson" to be learned from these people who have been on television once? The answer is no, it's because we have nothing better to do.

I like reading, I can quite easily sit in the fiction part of Waterstone's and read for the rest of my life. I have more books than I care to mention, including all of the Harry Potter books and several autobiographies of famous comedians such as Frankie Boyle and Billy Connolly and Ozzy Osbourne. So why do I hate autobiographies by nobodies? Because they have nothing to teach us! To quote Ozzy's autobiography "I Am Ozzy", he explains how he says that "I don't want anyone to do what I have done or been where I have been", compared to that of Jade Goody, "I did it once, I'll do it again and I'd urge anyone to do it with me". By the way, she was talking about cocaine.

I like to think that I'm not alone in thinking that these people only bring out autobiographies because they want to make money and are still desperate for the limelight after losing I'm A Celebrity, But Not Really Because No One Knows Who I Am. Or maybe they just feel that life lessons may be learned from them. Piss off!
