Book Description

Life is too short to remember to remove a USB safely.

Aunty Acid is the sassy senior created to give “the crazy old lady in all of us” a voice that can be heard from ten blocks away. With her long-suffering husband Walt, Aunty Acid tells it like it is and has her own unique opinions on everything.

Her fanbase is growing by over 1,000 a day as word on her wit and sassy sayings spreads across the internet where she reaches over 3 million people each week.

Aunty Acid is created by Ged Backland and is brought to life by the team at the Backland Studio in Bradford, West Yorkshire, in Northern England. Their other properties include the widely successful Scarlett & Crimson series.

I became aware of Aunty Acid from her Facebook page so I gave the book a try. It's funny but each page has only one joke on it. Can be read in an hour.

I could not stop laughing after reading some of the short quotes in the book. "Some days it is just not worth putting on a bra!" The books was so funny I had to get the other three. I also ordered the coffee mugs. Great job!
