:laugh Hey, why not Playboy. It's not just for perverts anymore! :laugh
Yeah, it does sound the same. It was just fun for him to meet this group of recorders. They were mostly retired ladies and they were thrilled to meet him (he's kind of a blond cutie charmer even if he's only 10). They took requests (he wanted Star Wars novels) and they got to see how appreciated their work is.
Over on our side of the hill on channel 2 they read all kinds of periodicals on the SAP channel. You probably don't get that station, though, I'm thinking it comes from San Francisco.
Who's your cable provider? Ours is Comcast. I haven't seen that channel :shrug
So, you're telling us that you really DO read Playboy for the articles? ;)
They have "People" magazine, "Newsweek" and even "Playboy"!.

And I am also reading "The Twelfth Night", "Paradise lost" and "baeuwolf" for my American Lit class. I personally do not like any of them though. Although "anne of green gables" is better than I thought it would be!
Anne of Green Gables is one of my favorites. On the shelf by my computer I have that and all the sequels waiting for my daughter to grow up and enjoy them. The sequels go all the way up through WWI.
Jewelsy - I don't have cable. I know, it bites. So maybe you do get the same channel 2. I don't know how these things work, but somehow they are broadcasting people reading periodicals on this channel. Maybe it has nothing to do with the TV station? :shrug
I loved Cold Sassy Tree as well. The author is Olive Ann Burns (had to go to the bookshelf to check). There's a sequel, although I didn't like it as well.

The Halfling's Gem - R.A. Salvatore
Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats - T.S. Eliot
Common Sense - Thomas Paine
Rights of Man - Thomas Paine
I've been doing a lot of reading on Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, and Patrick Henry. We finally got into the Age of Reason in my English class! :triplets Big reports and presentations... Eeks! :omg So, I've been reading a ton of pamphlets, narratives, and legal documentation from the era. Gotta be prepared (no matter how boring)! :lol The Salvatore is for my own leisure, obviously. :nod And, the T.S. Eliot is for poetic interpretation in Forensics (no, not dead people: speech/debate). :rofl
Well, I just got done with the Devine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood.
Yes, I know, I'm a little behind the times. I liked it, but it reminded me a little to much of work. It also didn't help that Vivi reminded me of someone I knew that I really really disliked so it was hard to warm up to her and her story at times. But I did like it, now I gotta see the movie because what little I have seen of the movie makes no sense now that I have read the book.
