Do you need this over made-up lesbian to tell you what books to read? Do you also need a swift kick up the cunt?

Vile Body

No one wants to be a snob – well, some people do but we totally look down on them – but do we really need the likings of Gok Wan to promote reading? 

First up, reading. What’s the big deal? Everyone goes on about it like it must be preserved at all costs like it is some sort of ancient skill even though most of the reading matter the nation gets through – thanks to the likes of Richard and Judy and, yes, the Wan –  is utter bollocks. And not the good sort. Most people can read, most people read Dan Brown. Even ‘respected’ authors like Sarah Waters need to get a fucking editor to cut that shit down by about half!

But Channel 4 has decided that since Richard and Judy have lost their touch in the field of telling us which brightly coloured delusional chick lit we should be gorging on (you know the sort of thing: ‘In between shopping for shoes and holding down a top job in the fashion industry, Melinda needs to choose between the titled landowner and megabucks Cockerney sparrow both intent on marrying her’), they need the likes of Gok Wan, Jo Brand (like her, but come on!) and Dave Spikey off-of Phoenix Nights to tell us what to read.

At least over at Asda (taps backside twice), Carol Vorderman is helping them promote proper exciting books like Lord of the Flies and funny books like Wind in the Willows, which are going for £3 (around the same price as Glamour magazine).
