Non-Reader Kanye West Publishes

KY_TYYWv2917.jpgHip-hop star Kanye West has just published a book of “Kanye-isms” with co-author J. Sakiya Sandifer. Entitled “Thank You And You’re Welcome,” the slim book contains 52-pages of West wisdom.

In a blog-baiting Reuters feature, West bragged about being a “proud non-reader,” and said he hoped to avoid the “wordy and so self-absorbed” style of novels. His mini-book collects aphorisms and brief stories from the artist.

Here’s a philosophical sample from the book: “When walking down the street, you can walk in one line perfectly without ever falling over. Now take that same city block, make it a foot wider and then put it a hundred stories high. You’re going to be so focused on the fact that you don’t have a banister, that you’re more likely to fall because of it. When you’re so focused on what you don’t have…you won’t have!”
