bookshelves: to-read

Um, can someone let me know when this book is translated into English?

Apparently this incredibly ballsy seventeen-year-old author has been accused (yup, another one) of rampant plagiarism...and is totally unapologetic about it. More here.

Mary apparently she apologized to the blogger-guy she stole the ideas from. Still not okay.

Oriana Ha, really? I'm sure the guy was totally okay with her stealing his writing & turning it into a bestseller once she apologized for it. Maybe she should instead give him co-author credit and some royalties. Jeez.

tee Oh wow. An apology. I can guarantee more than an apology would be needed if someone stole my ideas, let alone profited from them.

Funnily, her photograph reminds me of an illustration out of one of my Enid Blyton books - there was some type of sly, thieving goblin-type creature that she looks like. If I find the pic, I'll upload it.

Oriana Haha, hi Chai, nice cross-post.

That is a pretty unflattering pic of her. I could totally believe that she's a thieving goblin.
