Judge a book by its cover – Literary Stereotyping

I was directed to a site which explains how to judge people by what they read, here is a sample of some of my favourites…

Stephenie Meyer
People who type like this: OMG. Mah fAvvv <3 <3. Ayn Rand
Workaholics seeking validation.
David Foster Wallace
Confirmed 90’s literati.
Jane Austen (or Bronte Sisters)
Girls who made out with other girls in college when they were going through a “phase”.
Charles Dickens
Ninth graders who think they’re going to be authors someday but end up in marketing.
Mark Twain
James Patterson
Men who score a 153 on their LSAT exam.
David Baldacci
No one. Even the police say Clancy before they’ll say Baldacci.
Michael Crichton
Doctors who went to third-tier medical schools.
John Grisham
Doctors who went to medical schools in the Dominican Republic.

….and the list goes on here (Via Book Ninja)
