Complaints about readers...

Who complain about a book, but don't read it.

Its one thing for me to say 'I won't read those books, because I don't handle horror well' and another to say 'those books are crap, I haven't read them but I've read all about them from other people.'

Sure, I read about books all the time, and sure I won't tend to read those books, but not because of what I've heard... Rather, because the plot and contents don't seem to fit with what I'd enjoy. What don't I do?

I don't post long posts on social media saying 'Hey, this book is bad and says this!!!!' and blast it all over the place, while admitting that I've not read them.

It would be the same as saying 'I don't like the feel of silk. I've never touched it, but I've read all about it.'

Sounds silly, doesn't it?
