Adults Should Read Adult Books

'll read "The Hunger Games" when I finish the previous 3,000 years of fiction written for adults,' says Joel Stein in the New York Times in a morceau de la provocation:

Let's have the decency to let tween girls have their own little world of vampires and child wizards and games you play when hungry. Let's not pump Justin Bieber in our Saabs and get engaged at Cinderella's Castle at Disneyland. Because it's embarrassing. You can't take an adult seriously when he's debating you over why Twilight vampires are O.K. with sunlight. If my parents had read "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" at the same time as I did, I would have looked into boarding school.
