>I found this post over at Cake Wrecks.
The post starts out with the following quote from Kanye West (no wonder I have no respect for him and cannot stand to hear his music). The post ends with some exquisitely made cakes that you really should see.
This past week I read a story on how rapper Kanye West is a “proud non-reader” and, despite the fact that he recently wrote a 52-page book of “Kanye-isms” that he would like you to buy and read yourself, he has “no respect” for books. Or to put it in his own words,
“Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph.”
That’s good, Kanye, since it’s a right pain to get a book to even hold a pen, much less autograph itself. Anyhoo, after banging my head against the desk and weeping for future generations, I decided that today we should celebrate those authors and illustrators who made (and make) reading so much fun during our early years.
