Nobody wants to read but everyone wants to write

Quote originally published on Culture mulcher in a post about author Gary Shteyngart

"Nobody wants to read but everyone wants to ....What?" came a voice from behind Feedme who was sitting in the dirt applying the last five letter.
"Write, everyone wants to write" replied Feedme.
"I hope that's not true" responded the elderly gentleman in an accent that clearly placed his country of birth in Eastern Europe.
"I'm writing a book and I want lots of people to read it".
"What's the book", asked Feedme before applying the missing word.
"It's about about the Aboriginal people I worked with in Central Australia for 25 years and it's a very good story".
