Two Thumbs

People loved this book...other people. It's okay. It's a collection of essays about family, friends, work--wry observations about everyday things. And there are some funny bits, but sometimes it seemed like she was trying too hard. Or maybe I'm just getting old and can't identify with people in their twenties. Ack.

How 'bout we go green instead? Hey, what do you know! Ed Begley, Jr. isn't the giant weirdo I thought he was! His book makes a lot of sense, although it didn't tell me a whole lot I didn't already know. The best parts are the segments written by his wife, a less-enthusiastic participant in the eco-friendly lifestyle. Worth a try, but not worth a buy. Get it at the library.
