Matt Haig's 30 Things to Tell a Book Snob

Not that any of you are book snobs, naturally! But unfortunately they are out there and this wonderful blog post sums up concisely and eloquently exactly how I feel, particularly this pithy sentence: "If books ever die, snobbery would be standing over the corpse."

Children are especially vulnerable to the judgments of book snobs, since their tastes are evolving, they do not critique books in the same way as adults, and they have not begun to read what they think they "should" as opposed to what they really wish to.
