  • Smart Babes Interview San Jose's Hottest Male Cover Model (Sizzling Exclusive!) Smart Babes, Trashy Books

    Do you ever wonder who is gracing the cover of that romance novel you're reading? If you're into romance, there's a good chance you've seen Jason Aaron Baca on one of your novels--he's actually been on more covers than Fabio, around 500. He's also local to San Jose. By day, he works for Santa Clara County, by night/weekend, he poses as cowboys, vampires, pilots, soldiers, dukes, and other romance novel heroes. Our book club, Smart Babes, Trashy Books, was lucky enough to ask Jason all the questions we've been dying to know about being a cover model.

  • Looking Back: An Elementary School Reading List from 1967Image: Henry Huggins by Beverly Cleary. A fun story about a boy and his dog named Ribsy.

    From September 1967 to June 1968, I was in the third grade at Canoas Elementary School in the Meadowbrook tract (now Canoas Garden neighborhood) in Willow Glen. My classroom was A-3, and my teacher was Mrs.Keith. After our lunchtime recess (which was the longest), we would all return to class sweaty and wound-up. Rather than starting right back in with subjects like math or history, Mrs. Keith would read to us while we unwound and settled back in.
