b*tches in bookshops

Two beautiful book nerds, Shea Delaney and Annabelle Quezada, spoofed Jay Z and Kanye West’s
‘N*ggas in Paris’ with the witty ‘B*tches in Bookshops.’ Perhaps I, myself, am a nerd for posting this. Perhaps I’m a bigger nerd in that I’m proud of it.

“Read so hard, libraries tryin’ ta fine me.”

    Read so hard librarians tryin’ ta FINE me­,
    They can’t identify me,
    Checked in with a pseudonym, so I guess you can say I’m Mark Twaining.
    Read so hard, I’m not lazy.
    Go on Goodreads, so much rated.
    Fountainhead, on my just read, gave it four stars, and then changed it.
    Read so hard, I’m literary.
    Goosebumps series, TOO SCARY!

    Animal Farm, Jane Eyre
    Barnes & Nobles, Foursquare it
    No TV, I read instead
    Got lotsa Bills, but not bread

    Read so hard, got paper cuts
    On trains while you’re playin’ connect the dots
    All these blisters from turning pages
    Read so hard, I’m seeing spots

    Your Sudoku just can’t compare
    Nor Angry Birds cos lookit here
    My Little Birds is getting stares
    This print’s rare.

    Read so hard, I memorize, The Illiad… I know lines.
    Watch me spit, classic lit, epic poems that don’t rhyme.
    War and Peace, piece of cake, read Tolstoy in 3 days.
    Straight through, no delays.
    Didn’t miss a word. Not one phrase.

    Read so hard librarians tryin’ ta fineee me – That shit cray x 3
    Read so hard librarians tryin’ ta fineee me – That shit cray x 3

    He said Shea can we get married at the Strand
    His Friday Reads are bad so he can’t have my hand
    You ball so hard, OK you’re bowling
    But I read so hard, I’m JK Rowling

    That shit cray
    Ain’t it, A? What you readin’?
    AQ: DeMontaigne.
    You use a Kindle? I carry spines.
    Supporting bookshops like a bra, Calvin Klein.

    Nerdy boy, he’s so slow
    Tuesday we started Foucault
    He’s still stuck on the intro? He’s a no go.
    It’s sad I had to kick him out my house though –
    He Mispronounced an author – MARCEL PROUST

    Don’t read in the dark
    I highlight with markers
    While laying in the park
    And wearing Warby Parkers
    Marriage Plot broke my heart
    And it made me read Barthes
    I special ordered a
    A softcover not hard- HUAH?AHEHA?!

    Read so hard libraries tryin’ ta fine me x 2

    I am now marking my place
    Don’t wanna crease on my page
    Don’t let me forget this page
    Don’t let me forget this page
    I may forget where I left off so I’ll use this little post it…
    I hope it doesn’t fall out, I hope that it stays stickie…

    I am now marking my place
    Don’t wanna crease on my page
    Don’t let me forget this page
    I got bookmarks at home
    But I forgot one for the road
    AQ: I got a bookmark I can loan
    La Shea: Know how many bookmarks I own?

    I am now bookmarking my page x3
    DON’T LET ME FORGET THIS PAGE -age-age-age-age-age.
