Stephen Colbert on Books

For a lit­tle week­end laugh, here is Stephen Col­bert speak­ing at Book Expo Amer­i­ca, pump­ing his new book, I Am Amer­i­ca (And So Can You!), spar­ring with Khaled Hos­sei­ni (author of The Kite Run­ner and A Thou­sand Splen­did Suns), trash­ing Cor­mac McCarthy, and gen­er­al­ly liken­ing books to cig­a­rettes. The clip gets bet­ter as it moves along and ends with Col­bert hit­ting his stride.

PS You can also watch Part 2 of the video here.
