Charlie Joe Jackson’s Guide To Paperbacks
May 8, 2012
So my first book, CHARLIE JOE JACKSON’S GUIDE TO NOT READING, comes out in paperback today. This is a very good thing. Paperback books are cool because they’re almost not books. They’re almost magazines, which are way better than books. Some of the thinner ones almost feel like comic books, which are way WAY better than actual books.
Another good thing about reading a paperback is that if you have decent-sized pockets, it will fit right inside. That way, no one has to know you’re walking around with a book. (If you’re anything like me, you have a reputation to protect.)
But the best thing about paperbacks is that they’re less expensive than regular books. Because as we all know, the less money you spend reading, the better.
There is one bad thing about my paperback, though. There’s an excerpt from my second book, CHARLIE JOE JACKSON’S GUIDE TO EXTRA CREDIT, at the end. That means more reading for you. I want to go on record as saying I had nothing to do with that decision.
I hope you enjoy the paperback edition of my book. And I hope your pockets are big.
