Book ~ "Bury Me in a Borrowed Suit" (2010) Troy Anderson

From Smashwords.com ~ Whitey Keller bides his time at his job at Red Light Video, a seedy porn shop where he mans the register alongside a misfit crew of employees, consisting of an over-the-hill punk rocker, an alcoholic manager, and an autistic, cigar-smoking, baseball-obsessed janitor.

I had downloaded this free ebook onto my Kobo so didn't have high hopes for it ... but it turns out that I really enjoyed it.

The description from Smashwords doesn't do it justice ... you also get to know Whitey's friends including Jason, the drug dealer; Sarah, Whitey's girlfriend, whose brother committed suicide and his bedroom door has been locked since; Scott, a fella who goes into the porn shop to try and seduce Whitey on a regular basis; Sam, Whitey's friend who lies a lot; Bob, Whitey's widowed grandfather.

It's a wacky story as Whitey tries to find himself while he's working in a porn shop and figure out what he wants to do with his life. I enjoyed the writing style and it's quite funny. There are some grammatical errors but you should overlook them since it's free.

You can download it for free here.

I've been pondering the issue of getting a reader. Does change the reading experience or do you find it as good as a book?

Sounds like a good read, and you can't beat free.
