(That's an allusion to Malvina Reynolds' wonderful folksong LITTLE BOXES, as popularized by the great Pete Seeger.)

Books are getting ruined by being homogenized and made all alike. Authors are told that to make their work more commercial, they must write just like all the bestseller people. It ruins individual voices and makes reading boring. It's terrible when someone like ME finally stops liking to read (at least the new stuff).
