Observations on a Life Not Yet Observed

Mildly Amusing Thoughts in the Form of Essays

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Scott Douglas, author of the humor memoir "Quiet, Please: Dispatches from a Public Librarian" offers further insights into the library world and life in general in this collection of over 15 essays and sketches. In this collection, Douglas writes about his epic quest for prophylactics in Baton Rouge, how he failed the high school reading test, how he may be part of the new gay, and his thoughts on the Christian porn industry--amongst many others.

Customer Reviews

Really funny read.

Really great read! I would recommend it to anyone. A few chapters weren't that interesting, but I would read it and more books by this author.

Good book

A fun read but the library chapter was taken directly from Rolamd Saint-Laurent's book

Observations on a life not yet observed

For the most part I found this book entertaining, though there were many areas where you had to know grammar and word usage to know what word should have been in place of an incorrect word. The spelling throughout could have benefitted from spell checker. I found humor in some places and the failed attempt at humor in other places. It was an okay read all in all, not a great read but an okay read.
