Constructive Criticism

Talkin’ with The Queen.

Me: Hey, what did you think of that book The Eyre Affair?

Q: I thought it was good.

Me: Really? Because I’m a few chapters into it and not sure if I should continue.

Q: I liked it.

Me: Well, I’ll keep reading it, then. It must be good if you liked it, since you’re, like, the toughest book critic I know.

Q: I’m not a tough book critic.

Me: Yes you are. You hate every book you read.

Q: I only hate bad books.

Me: But you say that 98% of all books are bad.

Q: That’s because they are.
