If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won’t) by Betty White
(G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 2011, 258 pages)
I know Ying read and reviewed this title a few months ago, but when I saw that the audiobook was read by Betty White I had to pick it up. Plus, I had been wanting to read it anyway. If You Ask Me is really more like a collection of short essays. Betty takes a topic and writes about it based on her opinion and experiences. As I listened to it, the book felt like a comfortable interview with the actress. You get stories about what it was like for her growing up, how she feels about acting, why she hates walking the red carpet, where she gets her love of animals from… all sorts of stuff.
This was a nice, light read. I (like the rest of the world) adore Betty White. I mean, who doesn’t love The Golden Girls?! Plus, it really adds something to hear her read the book 🙂
