I’m a lover of classical ballet, and decided a couple of years ago to read and collect dance biographies. Believe it or not, they are not always easy to find. They go out of print quickly, so when I had the opportunity to lay my hands on Julie Kavana...more
Suzanne and 11 other people liked Chrissie's review of To Kill a Mockingbird:
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
" I never reread books - well here is the exception. THIS book was well worth a second reading. This is a book that CAN be read twice and I guess even more times. I loved the book when I read it a little short of 50 years ago, and I loved it this ti... " Read more of this review »
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Andy Rooney
“Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it's not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, "Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?", here's an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!”
