Tobey Maguire was the big one.

Pete Sampras, Macaulay Culkin, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Alex Rodriguez were others that are known.

Molly's Game -- pure unadulterated fiction. Not the least bit accurate in any way. I didn't necessarily play in any of Molly's games, but I have played with and know nearly all the characters in the film. Read Houston's book if you want to get a more accurate depiction."

A Big Hand For the Little Lady is the best poker movie ever! Great twist ending.

Forget about those two bullshit stories...I am more interested in your scribd subscription. I checked them out online...but I have unanswered questions. It says that I can read their books even on my Amazon kindle. Really?

Don’t know about Kindle. I use an iPad almost exclusively. Have a kindle app but don’t use it for Scribd. I use their app instead. Check it out. At most you will pay for one month. Cancel anytime.

I read voraciously and it is the best internet investment I have ever made. I’ll be reading an article or a YouTube that mentions a particular book or author. I check Scribd and BAM it’s there. 90% of the time.

I just subscribed. Free 30-day trial...and they offer unlimited audiobooks too, all for a low monthly fee.

Reading as much as I do...I am shocked that I had never heard of this site. Thanks a lot!

Couple of things:

Just because you donít see it doesnít mean itís not there. Search both by author and title. Sometimes youíll get a hit one way and not the other.

Good reading!
