Giveaway of I Didn't Ask To Be Born: (But I'm Glad I Was) by Bill Cosby!

Monday, October 10, 2011
Charlie Chaplin. Groucho Marx. Richard Pryor.
Over the past century, few entertainers have achieved the legendary status of William H. Cosby Jr. His successes span five decades and virtually all media, remarkable accomplishments for a kid who emerged from humble beginnings in a Philly housing project.
And the world's most beloved funnyman is back with I DIDN'T ASK TO BE BORN, his first humor book since the best selling Cosbyology. Cosby brings us more of his wonderful and hilarious insights into the human condition.
Sample chapters include:
Missing Pages: Bill Cosby owns eight Bibles, all written in English. They were published at different times. One of them in 705. Another one was printed in 1709. One came over on the Santa Maria. They're all very old but none are autographed. One thing these Bibles have in common is the fact that he's convinced there are missing pages.
The Morphamization of Peanut Armhouse: When Peanut's mother calls him to dinner and he refuses to leave the softball field, a young Bill Cosby witnesses a sight that haunts him to this day.
If (But not by Rudyard Kipling): If Native Americans knew then what they know now, America would be quite a different place.
Too Late For Me But Perhaps Not For You: How Bill Cosby handles a teenage daughter who refuses to clean her room.
Cosby's millions of fans will be excited and delighted to pick up this truly brilliant book from a comedic legend.

    I have always been so fond of Bill Cosby! I have watched him on t.v. as long as I can remember, and I still watch re-runs of The Cosby Show every day. I put this book on my wishlist as soon as I saw it online. He is an interesting man, and I would love to read this book.
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  1. I'd love to read this book because I grew up watching Bill Cosby. The Cosby Show was one of my favorites as a kid (still is), and I know that for me, growing up in a community where there were very few people of colour, it was so nice to watch a family like the Cosbys and feel like I was actually part of their family.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this book! :-)
