A few readers have bought Mrs. Clinton’s book. They just won’t read it. How do I know? This.
It turns out that when you block a bit of text in a Kindle book for your personal files, Amazon keeps a record of this — not just for your files, but for its algorithm. I guess the company thinks it can get you to buy more books this way. I am not sure why.
Anyway, wherever people stop extracting quotations is about where they stop reading.
It turns out that most people don’t finish Kindle books.
Mrs. Clinton’s new book, Hard Choices, on her easily forgotten career as Secretary of State, is a real page non-turner. People don’t make it past page 33. It has over 600 pages.
If her true believers can’t get past page 33, she may have a problem in being elected President.
Her publisher, which paid her $14 million for this non-flying turkey, surely has a problem. Word of mouth will get out. “Booooring!” It’s a book of foreign policy. What else would anyone expect? “I flew here. Then I flew there. I had dinner. Photographers took pictures.” Over and over.
Here are the reviews on Amazon: thumbs-down.
