I recently received a flyer from Deseret Book for a book titled: The Romney Family Table: Sharing Home Cooked Recipes and Favorite Traditions. Hasn’t Deseret Book and the Romney’s embarrassed us enough? Do we really need another book about the lives of the rich and famous? Apparently Deseret Book thinks we do. Don’t they have an editorial board at Deseret Book?
The LDS Church’s book company has had more than their share of snafus lately. For example:
- The ill-conceived children’s book: The Not Even Once Club
- The poorly thought out “Testimony Glove,” and
- Kieth Merrill’s anti-evolution message in The Evolution of Thomas Hall (published by Shadow Mountain, an imprint of Deseret Book)
Deseret Book needs to stop exploiting the membership with their inane kitsch.
