Book ~ "If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won't)" (2011) - Betty White

From Goodreads ~ Drawing from a lifetime of lessons learned, seven-time Emmy winner Betty White's wit and wisdom take center stage as she tackles topics like friendship, romantic love, aging, television, fans, love for animals, and the brave new world of celebrity. If You Ask Me mixes her thoughtful observations with humorous stories from a seven-decade career in Hollywood. Longtime fans and new fans alike will relish Betty's candid take on everything from her rumored crush on Robert Redford (true) to her beauty regimen (I have no idea what color my hair is and I never intend to find out") to the Facebook campaign that helped persuade her to host Saturday Night Live despite her having declined the hosting job three times already.

Featuring all-new material, with a focus on the past fifteen years of her life, If You Ask Me is funny, sweet, and to the point-just like Betty White.

This is a quick read ... I read it in a couple hours.

It's not a deep book but it's entertaining. Betty talks about getting old, having pets, her love for animals, red carpet parties, her late husband Allan Ludden, and more.

Considering she just turned 90 this week, she's still going strong. I hope I'm that lucky.
