yea - a great ending!



"Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad books."
one of the many quotes that caught my attention from this entertaining and educating book.
It concerns the German occupation of this this small island in the English Channel during World War II.
One of the islanders says, "We thought we'd be in the audience like, not be on the stage itself."
As, in my own life, their saving grace was the love of reading, many of them having never read before.

THAT most excellent quote from the book does it - I'm racing to B&N online or Amazon RIGHT RIGHT RIGHT now to get my copy of this book. Thanks, Ann - you always tell it like it is !!! ;-) -- Davi
