Kayne Writes Book For His Fellow Non-Readers

Kanye West, who supposedly does not read books, has somehow co-authored a new page-turner with J. Sakiya Sandifer entitled Thank You And You’re Welcome.
The 52-page book offers Ye’s optimistic philosophy on life. One section reads: “Life is 5% what happens and 95% how you react!” Another page reads “I hate the word hate!” Some pages are even blank or just feature a few short words.

“This is a collection of thoughts and theories,” West said in an interview about his new work. Kanye stated that he put his thoughts in a book because he gets “paraphrased and misquoted all the time.” He calls his wisdom “Kanye-isms.” Oh lord.

West also said that being a non-reader really helped when he wrote the book because it gave him "a childlike purity":

Sometimes people write novels and they just be so wordy and so self-absorbed. I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph. I am a proud non-reader of books. I like to get information from doing stuff like actually talking to people and living real life.

West dedicated the book to his late mother.
