2. The company was Reader%27s Digest magazine, based in little Chappaqua, New York - the same town where former president Bill Clinton and his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, have a home. It was founded by DeWitt and Lila Wallace, both 32-year-old children of preachers. At the time, most magazines featured fiction, but DeWitt, whom everyone called %22Wally,%22 and Lila wanted to offer serious non-fiction, condensed from other sources. Year after year, beginning in 1922, the Digest was the bible of everyday American life, featuring short human-interest and success stories, advice columns, memorable quotations, and tasteful jokes. At its peak in the 1970s, Reader%27s Digest ____________________ a circulation of 17 million in the United States alone, and its international editions sold millions more copies in many languages.

6. Todd: Yeah, a special guy. Definitely. How about in movies is there an actor that you ____________________? Matt: You know, I mean, I love so many actors and actresses in different roles. I think just in the interviews that I%27ve seen, I really like Johnny Depp because he can play different characters and he%27s not afraid to play off the wall characters or even bit parts or small roles that other main actors probably would not be interested in and he definitely, he brings humor to every dramatic role that he does. And just being in LA, I had a chance to see him film the movie Blow for about a week and just to see his demeanor on and off the set and he was not superficial or tough to deal with at all just from an outside perspective, he seemed like a really down-to-earth, cool guy, so I%27ve always ____________________ him.

16. Jeff: I think I would like to be a writer. Tim: Why is that? Jeff: Because a movie star would be good, or a rock star but there is too much fame.

You can write in the country in a cabin or you can write in the city anywhere you like so I think it is a very flexible rewarding job. Tim: Yeah, you got to have the skill for it though. Do you think you have that skill? Jeff: No, I%27m a terrible writer, but if I could have my pick of jobs, I%27d like to be a writer. How about you? You would like to be a fisherman.
