You can spot a true book lover
By CAROL BISSETT
Special to the Herald-Zeitung
♦How does one identify a true book lover (as opposed to a mere recreational reader?) Here is a list of traits that any true book lover will be able to recognize:
• You don’t mind dining out alone because you have your book for company.
• You don’t recognize the names of any current television programs because you spend your evenings reading.
• You are no longer on speaking terms with people who have borrowed your books and not returned them.
• You spent six hours at BookPeo-ple in Austin but are “too busy” to buy groceries.
• You no longer attend new movies because they are never as good as the books and you are tired of being disappointed.
• You always give books as gifts, even if the giftee doesn’t like to read.
• You no longer listen to music in the car, instead you listen to books on
• You took a two-week vacation but don’t know where you went (but you remember what you read while you were there).
• You prefer an evening in the company of a good book to an evening in die company of a real person (this is borderline abnormal — watch for other danger signs).
♦In the “couldn’t put it down” category: May I suggest Philip Kerr’s new book, The Grid, a British bestseller. The “grid” refers to a new office building in downtown Los Angeles with the latest technology built in. It’s a “smart” building whose computer automatically controls nearly every aspect of office life and building maintenance. Ifs a brilliant idea until the computer begins to have ideas of its own and spins out of control with gruesome results. When you read The Grid, you’ll see why Kerr has been called England’s answer to Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park).

The Smithson Valley High School Ranger Athletic Booster Club recently kicked off its 1996 fall sports program advertising sales campaign. Placing an advertisement in the program helps support the school’s athletic department while it promotes products and services, according to Booster Club Vice President Brad Parrott.
More than 1,400 copies of the fall sports program will be printed and distributed. The program is sold by members of the Booster club before all football and volleyball home games. Ads
range in price from $300 for a full page to $65 for one-sixteenth of a page.
Members of the Smithson Valley High School dance team and cheerleading squads are taking part in the program advertising sales campaign
and will receive half the revenue. To order an ad or for more information, businesses may contact a cheerleader or dance team member, or may call Brad Parrott at (210) 980-3322.
The SVHS Athletic Booster Club provides funds for athletic equipment and facilities.THURSDAY THROUGH MONDAY!
