What Say You?

The quotation:

"Until one has some kind of professional relationship with books, one does not discover how bad the majority of them are." --George Orwell

Do you, our general public, deem this quotation as true or false?

Our Verdict:

Misleading. Although many published works lack certain desirable qualities - clarity, focus, pacing, correct grammar, etc. - most all books are valuable as indicators of cultural phenomena, as studies in the art of crafting a story, or as prime examples of what not to do if one wishes to cement one's place in the literary canon.
