Snobs

24 May

We’re snobs, we can’t deny it. Book snobs especially. (Our mutual love of Archie comics may throw you, but trust us). We just read Shades of Grey for our book club. Not to be confused with Fifty Shades of Grey, we say with scorn. We know, everyone is jizzing all over it, but we’re just not interested. The number of books outnumber the hours available to read, therefore we have no choice but to be snobby about it.

We were lamenting this fact when this delightful article was discovered. The internet knows everything. Please give it a read, and rejoice in snobbery. We’ll be smarter for it.

PS Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde is an excellent, thoughtful and funny read. Fforde weaves a fantastical tale through his dystopic future of colourtocracy.  His imagination is unbelievable, we were delighted and interested.
