Smeggy Reads

Bookish Fun times

“I often hear people say that they read to escape reality, but I believe that what they’re really doing is reading to find reason for hope, to find strength. While a bad book leaves readers with a sense of hopelessness and despair, a good novel, through stories of values realized, of wrongs righted, can bring to readers a connection to the wonder of life. A good novel shows how life can and ought to be lived. It not only entertains but energizes and uplifts readers.”

Jerome Flynn…behind the scenes of Ripper Street or rehearsing a Guys & Dolls revival? You just can’t tell.

Yes sir, when you see a guy reach for stars in the sky,
You can bet that he’s doing it for some doll
When you spot a john waiting out in the rain,
Chances are he’s insane, as only a john can be for a jane.

WHY CAN’T RIPPER STREET START RIGHT THIS VERY MOMENT
