Jack Ponte is a physical god, with a perfect body, poise, and intense eyes. But it’s his grace that captures Reg’s attention, and when Reg asks for an interview, Jack agrees. After all, he’s looking for a life after bodybuilding, and Reg’s blogs offer a chance at something less fleeting.

Reviews In

Teresa has two new movie/book reviews in. This week is: They Do it With Mirrors, 2009 with Julie McKenzie

And: At Bertram’s Hotel, 1987 John Hickson version

In addition, I have several new books I’m in the process of reading/writing up reviews for. And when I say “several”, I mean I currently have seventeen books on by pile. And yes, that sounds like a lot, but I will get to each and every one of them. So, if you have a book you’d like me to review, don’t worry about the list. If you don’t mind waiting a few weeks, I will get to it, I promise. 🙂

National Library Day

Today is National Library Day – the Tuesday of National Library Week. Libraries are not just places full of dusty old books, they are fonts of information and culture. Yes, they have books, but they also have public computers, movies, music, events and more. Here are some quotes about libraries:

“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Who doesn’t love a library? It is a place you can go in any town and discover the world.” – Pat MacEnulty

“The three most important documents a free society gives are a birth certificate, a passport and a library card.” – E.L. Doctorow

“The only thing you absolutely have to know is the location of the library.” – Albert Einstein

“A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.” – Andrew Carnegie

“I always knew from that moment, from the time I found myself at home in that little segregated library in the South, all the way up until I walked up the steps of the New York City library, I always felt, in any town, if I can get to a library, I’ll be OK. It really helped me as a child and that never left me.” – Maya Angelou

“A library is a place that is a repository of information and gives every citizen equal access to it. That includes health information. And mental health information. It’s a community space. It’s a place of safety, a haven from the world.” – Neil Gaiman“

Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries.” – Anne Herbert

“The richest person in the world – in fact all the riches in the world – couldn’t provide you with anything like the endless, incredible loot available at your local library.” – Malcolm Forbes

“I love the Web, but the basis of my work is going through the physical books. When you go to the library, you see other books around on the shelves that you never knew existed. You can flip through a book and see the whole outlines of it.” – Camille Paglia

“I must say I find television very educational. The minute somebody turns it on, I go to the library and read a good book.” – Groucho Marx

“In my world there would be as many public libraries as there are Starbucks.” – Henry Rollins
