(27) Me Talk Pretty by David Sedaris

My sense of humor must sorely be lacking. This is the second book in a week that others have deemed "hilarious" yet, I have barely cracked a smile, let alone had belly laughs often.

Me Talk Pretty One Day, for those of you who don't know, is a book of essays by David Sedaris. Until today, the only thing I had read by David Sedaris was an article he wrote for The New Yorker about Costco. THAT was funny & had me laughing.

This book, not so much. Perhaps I am not smart enough or hip enough to really get his humor. Or perhaps I am just tired & cranky today. I am not going to give up on Mr. Sedaris though. I will attempt to read another of his books, perhaps when I am not so tired & it isn't snowing.

Have you read his books, what did you think?

While there were some funny parts in this, I agree with you that it wasn't AS hilarious as everyone said. I've ready much funnier books.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
