Kellee Moye (kelleemoye) I don't want to be a total party pooper, but has anyone read about the James Frey fiction factory thing. I Am Number Four is the first book they "produced" and I am refusing to read it based on principle. If you haven't heard about it:

All you have to do is google James Frey fiction factory to learn more...

I cant tell anyone not to read this book if they want to but I have to agree with Kellee. After reading this article, and even though it sounds like an interesting book, I don't think I can support this. I am going to add a third book for this month. The next book with the most books is Glimmerglass, which is what I will read. If you do read I am Number Four, you can still discuss under the book of the month.

Thanks Jennifer. Isn't it horrible?!?! I mean after what happened with his memoir you'd think he'd stay under the radar and, you know, be moral, but NO, he has to do this which is even worse than lying about his memoir. And just like you said, I am not going to tell anyone else not to read it, but I am not going to and I hope others read about it and chose not to support it.
