by Betty White
February 15, 2012 On the lighter side this week, there's a comic Western about two gun-slinging brothers and a memoir by TV's 89-year-old naughty girl, Betty White. Plus a father's wry look at the college admissions game, and a sports writer's tale of the cutthroat world of youth basketball.
"One thing they don't tell you about growing old," Betty White writes, "You don't feel old, you just feel like yourself. And it's true. I don't feel 89 years old. I simply am 89 years old."
May 8, 2011 Betty White has been on television — in her words — "forever." Her new memoir, If You Ask Me, focuses on the past 15 years of her life and career. Far from slowing down, that career has been skyrocketing as a new generation gets to know her.
