About ReadJack

January 7, 2009:


The writer, (above), seen making a serious face.

My name is Jack M Silverstein, and in the fabulously pretentious words of Rip Torn’s Q: “I… am a writer.” The readjack.com blog is just that: my website, readjack.com, in blog form. (“Remember readjack.com, Bart? It’s back. And in blog form!”) I will continue to update readjack regularly while also searching for ways to maximize the value of this site. I look forward to sharing my work with more readers as we advance the free exchange of ideas and explore this crazy, 21st century world of ours.


sincerely, Jack

  1. Hey you, not sure how long you’ve had this but I really like the look and feel. It’s mature…but not in a stuffy or dull way.. it’s a smart and engaging pallet – like I wanna know if you’ve got anything interesting to say. Lol, that’s prob what you were going for, and it works. Hope you are well :)


  2. I just took a lonnnngggg “coffee break” from work and spent nearly an hour reading through your site. I couldn’t stop. One story led to another. I enjoyed the Matthew Modine interview (is he really 52 years old!!) and his observations about Stanley Kubrick. Maybe you’ll bump into Chello again. I wanted to know more about him. You’re truly an insightful, thought-provoking writer. Keep it up. And your Readjack.com site is pretty cool, too.

  3. I come onto your site just to read the good stuff, such as your “People with Passion” journalism series on the Chicago Tribune’s EyeOnChi and your Sun-Times interviews with Bears’ “Peanut” Tillman and Chris Conti, for examples. And now that I have discovered Jarett Payton’s Monday/Wed/Fri morning show on Chicagolandsports.com I am in 7th heaven. It’s like the old ChicagoSports Guys tv program with Rick Telander et al, only without the cigars. But mostly, since eyeone’s flying around the Twitterverse, I follow you at @readjack. I’m a fan @pswope2.

  4. What’s up Jack. You remember me from ETHS? Anyhow, seeing as how you’re covering sports and music and you’re a Bulls die-hard like me, I think you may like this. If you do, reposting/circulating the buzz would be much appreciated. Love from a fellow Wildkit,
