People Roast Ashley Tisdale For Using 400 Random Books As Decor

Why buy books if you can’t show them off on your shelves? If you’re simply trying to read more, you might as well go to the library and then return whatever you read as soon as you finish it. Frankly, reading books without telling people you read books is a fool’s errand. You have to flaunt it. Unfortunately, not all curated shelves are alike, as actress and singer Ashley Tisdale discovered after her interview with Architectural Digest.

While giving a tour of the Los Angeles home she designed herself, she revealed that she didn’t have enough books to fill the built-in shelves. In a viral tweet about the moment, writer Sarah Caldwell captured the breathtaking moment:


In Tisdale’s defense, you buy books because they look nicer on shelves than whatever tchotchkes and action figures most people put up there to fill space. Just because someone hasn’t been hoarding a TBR pile as long as you have doesn’t make them a dumb person.

Buying completely random books that you’ll never read, however, is kind of silly and a waste of money. Well, what are you gonna do? Oh, I know! Tweet about it! While the original tweet seemed somewhat judgmental, many people pointed out there are worse things you can do with your money than buy books.

Here’s how people reacted to Ashley Tisdale buying 400 random books as decor for her home:

1. On the bright side, she’s supporting the literary economy.

2. Seriously, what’s your problem everyone?

3. Others don’t really care but appreciate the honesty.

4. Everybody’s a critic.
