Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

The Greedy Bastard Diary: A Comic Tour of America

The Greedy Bastard Diary : A Comic Tour of America - Eric Idle If you can look past the ridiculous sexism that runs through this tale like a warped thread, this is a fun, silly, entertaining read. Eric Idle has some real sweetness to him and of course, he's brilliantly funny. I admire his dedication to writing every morning and his diary pages reflect those wonderful early morning moments, when our minds wander to the past, the scenery and life changing moments. I was especially entranced and moved by his tales of being George Harrison's (of the Beatles) good friend. His tales of hanging out with George are worth picking up this book all on its own. Lots of great laughs.
