Ms. Erhart's story reminds us that when we make generalizations and judgments, it is we who are poorer for it. Some folks may have a tendency to think of checkout clerks as mindless automatons, but Ms. Erhart is rich in experience, powers of observation, compassion, humor and her mind is always working.

Bobbi Erhart's story is not simply a humorous tale of grocery carts, customers and baggers. Many events on her life's journey would fell lesser women. But Ms. Erhart, like the mountains she loves, is always rising up. If you check the word "resilient" in the dictionary, you'll see Ms.Erhart's name. From her childhood in Michigan's wild and wooly upper peninsula to her later life in the Rocky mountains, the vagaries of nature play out in her outer and inner environments.

When she finds herself employed as a grocery store clerk, she sees that the checkout lane is really a microcosm of the larger society. Her customers run the gamut between the dualities of young and old, rich and poor, educated and illiterate, healthy and ill, happy and sad. Her insights and humor will reveal and delight, but her book doesn't end at the checkout lane.

For those of you who are Florida transplants, her story of moving from the mountains to the flatlands will ring true and have you nodding your head in agreement.

You can certainly read this book for enjoyment, but you may also be tempted to be a little more friendly to the checkout clerk at your grocery store. Who knows, you may end up in a book someday.

Paper or Plastic: Life in the Check-Out Lane

I read "Paper or Plastic" in one afternoon that I dedicated to not going biking. I read it while I sat on the top or second step of my pool in Southwest Florida. At my side was a cooling beer, with several empty cans awaiting their final destination to the recycle bin in the garage. Several times I spread out on my plastic raft (Pinch A Penny, Englewood) and risked toppling over from laughing, adding to that the risk of my current beer falling into the pool. Heaven forbid! Who wants to drink a watered-down beer?

I enjoyed the humorous manner in which the book was written and I enjoyed visualizing some of Bobbi's experiences (can you say "eating rattlesnake"?) and, knowing Bobbi, picturing her saying some of the comments appearing in the book. We've all been there: to the supermarket and we've all heard some of the tales that Bobbi relates in her book. We've all seen the obese woman whose hair is always in pink curlers and we've encountered "grazers."

I know Bobbi ... I live minutes from her. That made it all the more special for me ... learning more about a person whom I know. And, I didn't know there was a Rotonda River. I DID learn something new from the book!

"Paper or Plastic" had me grinning, when not downright laughing out loud throughout the book except for the chapter that dealt with homeless people (Bobbi has a soft spot in her heart, too.)

If you enjoy a good read that doesn't require analyzing ("what IS the author trying to say?"), this might be the book for you to read on a quiet afternoon OR while you're in your walk-in closet, trying to escape nature's wrath during a hurricane.

It's a good read and I imagine we've "been there, done that," but perhaps not through the eyes and clever, creative mind of Bobbi Erhart.

And there's a bonus: Bobbi adds some recipes near the end of the book. Be sure to try "Mom's Blueberry ___" ... Mom's description added a final laugh to the pages that precede it.

Give it a try and when you do, don't be surprised if you're asked: "Paper or Plastic?"

Bobbi Erhart's book "Paper or Plastic: Life in the Checkout Lane" is a funny, charming first title (the sort of book many people probably plan to write about the "you-wouldn't-believe-it" nature of their workplace escapades yet never execute). This book is great fun to read and while the narrative isn't the voice of a seasoned writer, it IS the voice of a great story-teller. I stayed up late reading this book because I couldn't stop turning the pages and that is high praise for ANY book no matter how lauded the author. In fact, there were times when I felt like I was listening to her tell me stories! Erhart certainly attains the mark of any great writer: she can make just about ANYTHING engaging and can breathe life into the most simple scenario. The book is a mixture of autobiography and a collection of stories about her years behind the check-out-stand and the colourful (to say the least!) supermarket denizens who landed in her queue.

There is a lot of heart and warmth to the humour in these quirky stories and you can immediately tell that the author is a keen and compassionate observer.
Never sardonic or cutting, Bobbi Erhart manages to tug at your heart strings and make you laugh without self-conscious ploys or the strained sophistication a lot of auto-biographical humourists employ. She's true blue and the most effective (and funny) passages come when she nails the art of truthful and even self-exposing observation. The passages where she talks about her love affair with cheesecake is one of the best "battle with the bulge" expositions in ANY book. The stories about her quirky customers are fascinating and I can attest to the reality of some of the ones which describe local celebrities as I live in the town she fictionally describes as "Gunbark, Montana" -- What a great book. As an extra treat there are recipes at the end of the book and even a unique use for a dishwasher. I was sad when there were no more pages left.

If you are looking for a clear, warm and honest example of 'truth is stranger than fiction' -- look no further than this collection of stories from behind the check-stand.

I will never think of the supermarket in the same way again! I'm looking forward to her next book.

This book is the the kind of laugh out loud book you read because you miss Lewis Grizzard, Dave Barry doesn't publish a book often enough and your reading life just isn't the same with the loss of Erma Bombeck. Bobbi Erhart's sense of humor and her insight into the folks and experiences that so obviously touched her life remind me so much of Erma Bombeck. As a reader whose library includes every book Bombeck ever wrote I can't give any higher praise to Bobbi Erhart. I wish she'd just hurry up and write another one.
I never, ever thought I would roar with laughter while reading bonus recipes in a collection of short stories, particularly a great recipe containing blueberries that had my husband wiping tears of laughter from his face as he read over my shoulder.
So from this moment on, I'll beware of my local checker who may be collecting data for a book, but I won't hold my breath waiting for one this funny!!!
This book is a darn good read.

This is a very funny book with great insight into the people around us. I laughed out loud as I read this by the pool and every time my wife heard me chuckle, having already read the book, made me reread the passage to her. This made for a longer read time but well worth it. Thanks Bobbie, this brought back fond memories of working in a grocery store. years ago.
