Book Club Friday #24

It's the freakin' weekend baby, I'm about to have me some fun!
 
;)
 
Seriously, it's going to be an amazing weekend. I'm taking my mom to do something special for her birthday, and Nate's mom is in town!
 
Linking up with Heather and Katie.
 
 
This week, I'm sharing If You Ask Me by Betty White.
 
I got this book for 75 cents on half.com! Seriously, 75 cents. If you haven't checked out this website yet, you're seriously missing out! 
 

Book description from GoodReads:

Drawing from a lifetime of lessons learned, seven-time Emmy winner Betty White's wit and wisdom take center stage as she tackles topics like friendship, romantic love, aging, television, fans, love for animals, and the brave new world of celebrity. If You Ask Me mixes her thoughtful observations with humorous stories from a seven- decade career in Hollywood. Longtime fans and new fans alike will relish Betty's candid take on everything from her rumored crush on Robert Redford (true) to her beauty regimen ("I have no idea what color my hair is and I never intend to find out") to the Facebook campaign that helped persuade her to host Saturday Night Live despite her having declined the hosting job three times already.

Featuring all-new material, with a focus on the past fifteen years of her life, If You Ask Me is funny, sweet, and to the point-just like Betty White.

My thoughts:

LOVED this book. I've always been a big Betty White fan, and this was a great way to get to know her a little better. She's so funny, and seems like such a kind-hearted person. This was a great story.

I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.

She cracks me up. My favorite Betty White moment was in The Proposal when she and Sandra Bullock were dancing around the camp fire ;)

Betty White is so cute and funny, glad to hear the book was good too! I can't imagine the amount of ridiculous stories she must have through all of her years in Hollywood- thanks for sharing!

I think she's written multiple books - and I want to read them all. I watched Golden Girls all the time with my mom and she was always my favorite. She's just the freaking coolest lady ever. And you are so right, she's sweet and kind-hearted. I love how much she loves animals. I watched her on The Talk when it was first on and interesting (LOL) and just the respect and love in her eyes for all the different animals Jack Hanna had brought on - just so inspiring and awesome.
