Man Uses Internet
When asked why he was giving famous books such as Lord Jim low reviews on Goodreads, the Booker Prize-winning author Salman Rushdie claimed he was “only fooling around”:
When challenged by members of the site, Rushdie is reported to have said: “I’m so clumsy in this new world of social media sometimes.
“I thought these rankings were a private thing designed to tell the site what sort of book to recommend to me, or not recommend.
“Turns out they are public. Stupid me.”
Which, first of all, is very adorable and made me really want to call my dad, and second of all, caused me to be excited for Rushdie’s further clumsy forays into the new world of social media, whenever that may happen.
I am ready for this.
