Chapter 4- Battle Of The Books

Twilight, Rarity and Rainbow were sat around the radio, ready for the next live broadcast after the break advert. Starlight decided to see what the fuss was about. The pegasus held her Daring Do book tightly, as if it was a child she wouldn't want to part. Rarity, choosing to wear her detective clothing and stylish hat, held her Shadow Spade novel in her magic, waiting patiently for the Pinkie's voice to come back on. Twilight had her new Star Swirl book and sat between the two, as Starlight observed the spectacle from a safe distance. She knew that distance is needed when in the same room of three eggheads.

Hopefully there wouldn't be a mess to clean up, Starlight prayed mentally. Let's just see if anypony is alive after this.

"Good morning Equestria!" Pinkie's voice announced to this morning's listeners, "Hope you have had a great morning so far, as it's time for Equestria's Book Club!"
"We've been sent numerous dragonfire letters from our fans of the EBC and the scores have been counted and verified," Autumn continued
"And the winner is...Hold for dramatic effect," Silverstream concluded, though the narration wasn't necessary.

Celestia. help us, Starlight prayed.

"The Joy of Chaos, by Equestria's well known Spirit of Chaos, Discord!" Pinkie announced excitedly.

Dead silence...

"WHAT?!" All three listeners at the radio exclaimed at the same time.

"I know," Pinkie said, as if she was talking directly to the dumbstruck trio, "Who could believe Discord, of all creatures, managed to write a bestseller! Fluttershy would be proud."

Marble just rolled her sister's sarcasm.

"Well that concludes the book announcement on the EBC. Here is Songbird Serenade, with her new song, Walking On Clouds. See you after the song," Gabby concluded, then the song played in the background.

Twilight, with a shaking hoof, switched off the radio.

Another dead silence settled in...

"Twilight," Rarity slowly said, "I don't feel too good."

"You got that feeling of slowly turning to dust and blown away?" Twilight asked. Her face had gone a pale purple.

"Yes, darling. I think you are correct," Rarity answered plainly.

Well, that went better than- Starlight almost breathed a sigh of relief, but was interrupted in mid-thought.

"OH COME ON!"

I stand corrected, Starlight internally groaned as she, as well as the other ponies in the room turned towards the pegasus in the room.

"Discord?! Discord, of all creatures, won the book vote of the week?! That is like, 20% so not cool," Rainbow raged, "His book is like, Discord in book form and letters on pages. Imagine if ponies took his advice?!"

Twilight, Rarity and Starlight shuddered at the thought. They already have a pink pony who's chaotic enough to deal with.

"Daring Do is way more cooler than that!"

"Excuse me!" Rarity butted in, "But I think you will find the new edition of Shadow Spade and the Stolen Lover is for more superb in elegance and logic and simple being brutish in some silly temple raid."

"Well I think Star Swirl's new The Adventures of Friendship Part 2 explores amazing friendship lessons from his travels across Equestria today!" Twilight chimed in.

This is what I was afraid of, Starlight face-hoofed.

This was going to be a long day...
