I was looking for my first book for the Shelf Monkey's Critical Monkey challenge. I was toying with the idea of searching the dollar bins for a copy of Jonathon Livingston Seagull. If I'm going for cheese, I might as well go for some old school 70's style cheese. There are a lot of people out there claiming this book is a masterpiece and that it changed their lives. As Corey would probably point out, there are people saying the same thing about Twilight and they are wrong.
Anyways, I looked up the book and decide to read some of the reader reviews. It wasn't long before I found this gem:
"Anyway, some people call this book "inspirational", or "motivating." I'm guessing that these are the same people who consider accidentally getting two extra cheesesticks for free in their Papa John's order "a miraculous affirmation of a higher power.'"
Jonathan, semi-anonymous book reviewer out there somewhere in the interweb, I salute you.
Now it's off to the dollar bins.
