I never do that. At least never on purpose before reading books on my tbr pile.
But I was googling for Shawn Westover (a thread I started on my Facebook reading group, where someone mentioned Paul Rudd should play Shawn, so curiosity got me rolling), and landed myself on a CBS segment on YouTube.
It was a short interview, but I guess I wanted to hear what Tara sounded like, instead of Shawn, because I did the same with Elizabeth Holmes (she’s known for faking a deep voice to fake-it-until-you-make-it in Silicon Valley) barely a week ago.
And that’s when I learned Shawn was the only pseudonym used throughout the book.
It may not seem like a big of a deal to a non-reader but it did damage my reading moving forward a little.
No more Googling!
