For those that enjoy giving books as gifts, you'll love this intriguing website posting inscriptions from a variety of books. Here's one of the inscriptions:
“July 3, 1892
When in my grave I lonely sleep,
And the weeping willows o’er [me] weep,
Tis then dear friend and not before,
That I will think of thee no more.”
An 1879 copy of McGuffey’s Fifth Eclectic Reader.
Found at the Georgetown Library Book Sale in Washington, DC. April 2005.

French Playwright Yasmina Reza wins another Tony award for her brilliant play, GOD OF CARNAGE. Her first win was for ART in 1994. Both plays, translated by Christopher Hampton, feature intriguing characters and biting, thought-provoking dialogue. Stellar performances only add to a wonderful theatrical experience.

This is the tag line for MAN ON WIRE, currently nominated for an Oscar for Best Documentary. Check out the DVD, along with the extras featuring additional interviews. Not that I'll be wire walking anytime soon, but the passion Phillipe Petit has for doing what he loves and how he wishes the same for everyone is invigorating and inspiring.
