Justine Larbalestier on why she doesn't read.
Certain authors. Why she doesn't read certain authors.
Scared you for a minute, though, didn't I?
I admit it. I'm totally one of those author photo people. If the back flap features a photos that looks like a GlamourShot, complete with the gauze and the windmachine and the soft focus, I won't read it.
I also tend to avoid authors who have legions of annoying fans. Actually, that goes for musicians, too.
