did any of you read this?

Five Finger Discount: A Crooked Family History by Helene Stapinski
Am curious about The Five-Finger Discount. Have you read it? How was it?


  1. Yes! Great book about growing up in Jersey City, New Jersey. Rich in historical and family detail. Author is a keen observer of how a city's history can affect it's residents on the individual level. Kinda sad but very funny.

  2. i can tell you my aunt louise often gives herself a 5-finger discount in restaurants if she likes something, say a salt shaker or napkin.


I welcome any comment, so happy to hear from you.
