Just wanted to let you all know that I opened a new source for actor Stephen Amell. The best know from his TV show hit Arrow. So please check out the site and comments are much appreciate it.
Audio books are great for readers who don’t have that much free time, which probably describes most of us. But have you ever felt like those timesavers would be even better if famous people were reading them? No? Maybe? Yes for the sake of this article?
Good. Because Audible.com has announced an A-list collection of classic novels read by Susan Sarandon, Anne Hathaway, Colin Firth, Dustin Hoffman, Kate Winslet, Hilary Swank, Samuel L. Jackson, Annette Bening, Jennifer Connelly, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Meg Ryan and Kim Basinger.

Although, it’s easy to see how three hours and 49 minutes of this could drive a person crazy.

But Hilary Swank said yes. And her decision to attend the lavish, Oct. 5 concert/bash for a leader accused of numerous human rights violations has invited strong criticism.
The Human Rights Foundation, an organization focused on the global defense of human rights, has come down hard on Swank and other stars who attended the party — Jean Claude Van Damme was there, as was British violist Vanessa Mae, who also performed and was reportedly paid $500,000 to do so.

Ten years ago, millions of North Americans gathered around their TV sets to witness the ghastly and incomprehensible images of 9/11. A decade later, television will mark the anniversary of the terrorist attacks with a massive outpouring of programs.
Network and cable outlets plan to air dozens of specials and documentaries recounting the tragedy, gauging the fallout and detailing the changes that have occurred since Sept. 11, 2001. Along the way, nearly every conceivable angle will be covered – from an Animal Planet entry about the posttragedy healing power of pets, to Nickelodeon’s forum for children too young to fully understand the meaning of 9/11. Here are some notable programs airing in the coming days.
On Native Soil: Kevin Costner and Hilary Swank narrate this documentary that delves into the findings of the 9/11 Commission. (3 p.m., MSNBC)
The staff at Hilary Swank Fan wishes Hilary a very very happy birthday. We hope you have a great birthday Hilary!
