Members of my book club ventured out to Caldo this past Wednesday as we've been doing the venue hopping thing. Nice, quiet, cozy atmosphere as we did a short and sweet discussion of Ellen DeGeneres' latest book "Seriously, I'm Kidding." I felt fortunate enough to get it for $1.99 on the Kindle. Now I haven't read any of her other two books, and I like DeGeneres as a person and talk show host, but the book was just not all that great. It jumped all over the place; it wasn't as funny as I was hoping. There were some amusing moments, but they were brief. And I wasn't the only one in the club who felt that way. The talk about the book itself lasted roughly five minutes, if that. It wasn't one of those "I couldn't put it down" type of books. I've only had a few of those kind of books in my life - "Water for Elephants," "The Shoemaker's Wife," and "The Help" among some others.
