April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

13. Getting Along Famously by Melissa Hellstern



Title: Getting Along Famously
Author: Melissa Hellstern
Copyright: 2008
Pages: 208
Format: Hardcover
Rating: 3/5 stars
Finished: 2-19-09

To be perfectly honest, the only reason that I picked up this book is because it had Audrey Hepburn on the cover. I think she is fabulous, and I decided that maybe since the book featured Audrey Hepburn on the cover, it couldn't be all that bad, right? Well, luckily I was right. Getting Along Famously is a collection of vignettes about famous friendships. Audrey Hepburn & Sofia Lauren; Julie Andrews & Carol Burnett; Lucille Ball & Vivian Vance to name a few. Each vignette gives a little history on the friendship and each person and includes photos and additional quotes and anecdotes from their lives. A fun little volume, not hard to read at all, but informative all the same.
