Do you need a degree to write a book? No.
Do you need a degree in anything to be successful? No.
Let’s think, let’s look at NY Times Bestseller’s List, Teresa Giudice who I adore, ( NJ pride!) has her new book debuted. Although the story is probably interesting about being in prison and all, people are solely reading it because IT IS Teresa Giudice’s book.
Every actor, singer, you name it has or is publishing a book, which makes me wonder… (when’s my big break going to come) but anyways, people are reading books nowadays because of who the author is. Whereas, a few years ago people read books because they heard the storyline was good, or something along those lines. I usually don’t base my judgement about whether to read a book solely upon who read it. But that’s hypocritical also, because I will read anything John Greene publishes because in fact he IS John Greene.
So I guess I can’t really sit here and say that it’s wrong because I in fact do it myself. But I wanted to point out how fame value has increased because of this. Khloe Kardashian’s book has done SO well, who is to say she is an established writer, who knows if she’s taken a literature class or not- she’s doing fairly well because of it.
I guess it goes to say that you don’t necessarily need a degree to write a book, being famous helps and all. I suppose it’s a wonderful thing, that all these books are bringing people together, and making connections, creating reliability between fans and celebrities. Right?
