Anyways, I bought and read Born Standing up by Steve Martin last night. For the first 50 pages I was convinced this book wasn't going to resonate with me. 90% of this partial biography of Steve Martin's life as a stand up comedian took place before I was born. But something made me keep reading and by the end of the book I was bawling. This book is truly worth the read no matter your age. Maybe an older person could relate more, but the story Martin tells becomes universal and enchanting.
I brought my niece to the book store last night as a little celebration for graduating 5th grade. We each got 3 books, even though I promised myself I wouldn't buy myself any.
