I read [to completion]:† The Story of Scotland Yard, Laurence Thomson
† Winston Churchill, Quentin Reynolds
One of my favorite quotes is "Never give in! Never, Never, Never, Never - in nothing great or small, large or petty - never give in except in convictions of honor and good sense." And after reading Winston Churchill I think the quote describes the man pretty well. I never quite understood his full meaning before. Surely, he was a man to never give in, in anything great or small, large or petty, except to convictions of honor and good sense; and, perhaps, that wasn't always the best thing, but I think he was perfectly fitted to be Prime Minister of Great Britain during W.W.2 and the never give in part of his character was a large part of that. "During his life he had the necessary strength to rise above defeat, the integrity to stand alone for the sake of his convictions, the courage to demand sacrifice and fortitude from the English people at their most trying time in history" - Winston Churchill, Quentin Reynolds
Chronicles of Avonlea, L. M. Montgomery
Made up of a bunch of short stories evolving mostly well-known characters from the Anne of Green Gables books. It's nice, but nothing especially great like some of Montgomery's other books.
Unbroken, Laura Hillenbrand
Very, very good book. Tough to read at times - most times - but it's good. I wouldn't recommend it lightly, but, sometime, when you're ready, read it. I'd have to say it's on - or at least very close to being on - my favorite books list.
Persuasion, Jane Austen
I actually liked this book! :) I've tried reading Jane Austen before but it didn't work out. Persuasion, however, I did like and enjoyed. (The only reason I tried to read it in the first place is 'cause my sister told me to.) I like the main character, Ann (I think that's her name...).
