105 Ways to Give a Book

A BACA First?

BACAI haven’t read The Big One-Oh, by Dean Pitchford, but I think it’s interesting that the blurbs are by Jamie Lee Curtis and John Lithgow. Dean Pitchford is himself a celebrity as a songwriter, though I would have totally cut him BACA slack because there’s no big name-recognition factor. However, now that the book’s been blurbed by two celebrities on the front cover, I feel that as the founder of Bloggers Against Celebrity Authors, I must pass on this book on principle.

(Total confession: It actually sounds kinda funny. I might have to read it on the down-low.)

W-e-e-e-lll, you'll have to let me know what you think, I don't believe I can join you on this one, on the DL or anywhere else.

I had the opportunity to review this one and was TOTALLY PUT OFF by the OBNOXIOUS name-dropping of his musical stuff. OKAY already, he was nominated for Oscars and Academy Awards and involved in Footloose and wrote some other regrettable 80's songs. Could we let that go and just take the book on its own merit? Sheesh.

Just so you should know, I have ordered my own BACA stuff.

I keep meaning to take a picture of myself in the t-shirt and blog about it, but...I think I want to lose some weight first.....

SO I guess I have my limits as to principles over vanity....
