I Always Knew

I always knew I was a weirdo because I like to read so much. But now, even a major author confirms it:

America’s a big country. In America only a few weirdos read. I mean, it seems like a lot of weirdos, but that’s because you’re a very big country.
That author would be Zadie Smith who was interviewed for New York Magazine. That's not all she said. It's what she said about England that has everybody in an uproar. (links from Maud Newton where you can also find more links to the media backlash) I like her. At least she gives the book world some spice and personality. We might be weird but we aren't dull!
