E-mail addresses of the Rich & Famous
Submitter: This is perhaps the most embarrassing offerings we’ve ever submitted to Awful Library Books, and we’ve offered up a few doozies! An email directory from 1994? We’ve hit a new low. I wonder if Al Gore still checks his email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I wonder why the author included page 20. The heading there reads, “CELEBRITIES (PROBABLY FAKES).” The page includes an email address for Howard the Duck, for crying out loud! Why did we buy this book?
Holly: I can actually see buying something like this, but you have to know you’re going to weed it within a few short years. I just love it when people ask for a celebrity’s personal email. You know their publicist handles all that, right? And yours may or may not ever be opened at all, let alone read, and I almost guarantee it won’t be read by the celebrity themself. Interesting to note that this book is by Seth Godin.
