HASH(0xa386db88) out of 5 stars You will find one of your OWN shopping lists in this collection! May 23 2007
By R S Cobblestone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
How often do you drop your used shopping lists into the shredder? I would expect you would reply, "Never". And because of this, Milk Eggs Vodka: Grocery Lists Lost and Found, by Bill Keaggy, was born.

I was just walking by a bookshelf when my eyes lingered for an extra second on this book. I think my first impression was that it was a cookbook by some over-the-hill rock stars... I mean, milk, eggs, and vodka? But where was the subtitle, "Meatloaf's/Pink Floyd's/Grand Funk's roadie cookbook."

Then I caught the real subtitle: "Grocery Lists Lost and Found."

It was intriguing enough that I picked it up off the shelf.

This was a really entertaining collection of real shopping lists, with the wrinkles and creases, the torn edges, the use of scrap paper, the misspellings, and America's diet (there is a reason obesity rates are on the rise) all laid out in their glory.

There is enough of a collection that at least one of these discarded lists will look familiar.

Is it yours?

Fine literature these lists, and this book, are not. However, the collection was interesting to peruse, and I'll bet this would be a great icebreaker at a party (take turns trying to read the lists on each page... "hookers and blow"?). This book would also be a great present for that friend or family member with that good sense of humor.

Now that I've read Milk Eggs Vodka, I suspect I will pay a bit closer attention to what I write down on that scrap of newspaper. After all, Bill Keaggy may be the next person to use my grocery cart.

Bill Keagy shares his love of the unusual, your discard shopping list. At his website and his book, Milk Eggs Vodka, we get to see what some people are shopping for, as well as Keagy's humorous commentary. It is completely amazing to see the misspellings and how our own shopping list can be seen as a source of amusement for others. This book is funny and irreverent and worth taking a peek.

HASH(0xa38888a0) out of 5 stars My favorite coffee table book Nov. 13 2012
By Redjameskidd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I vividly remember the first time I picked up "Milk, Eggs, Vodka" and started leafing through it in a bookstore cafe. I remember because I ultimately had to put it back on the rack. My laughter was disturbing the people around me.

"Found grocery lists" is a tough concept to sell to someone who has never read anything like this, but you'll just have to take my word for it that this is one of the funniest books I've ever read, and those I've shown it to agree with that assessment. It is incredible how the lists can sum up our basic traits and draw portraits of our lives from just a few items. Keaggy's commentary is droll and incisive and admittedly snarky as hell. You can tell, however, that it's driven by a love for attempting to understand a little bit more about the people who we see walking around us every day in a public place like the supermarket.

I now leave grocery lists behind in my shopping cart when I go for groceries, because of this book.

HASH(0xa3d2b198) out of 5 stars Laughing at Lists July 29 2007
By Darcy-Mark Verg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book had me laughing so hard in the bookstore I just had to buy it. The lists themselves are great...but when you have the Jimney Cricket remarks of author Bill Keaggy they become hysterical. I can read sections over and over and still crack up! He gives the lists personality and a very creative edge -- like. "Stop Smoking Bad Mom!" Get this book you will never look at lists the same way again!

HASH(0xa3685900) out of 5 stars Interesting Book Oct. 21 2007
By Eric Schultz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a very clever book. I like how it is in full color and is organized very creatively. My reccommendation is that you read the lists FIRST, then read what Bill Keaggy has to say. Sometimes it's not funny if you read his snipit first. I also love how he created some recipes based on the lists he's found. I can't wait to try some out. Very good book to add to your collection.
