What I think of this book: I read this book because I have a friend
who is always beating me at tennis, and what is worse, boasting about
it. I wanted to take him down a peg or two so when I saw this book I was
glad that I had this opportunity to improve myself. Borrowed from: Library
Leta S. Hollingworth, Psychology of the Adolescent
Begun: October 28, 1932; Finished: October 28, 1932
What I think of this book: This was a very interesting book for me at
least. It explained many things that I had wondered about, e.g. the change
in my attitude towards girls, etc. I think that this would prove interesting
to anyone who reads it. Personally, I liked it. Borrowed from: Library of
Joseph Conrad, The Rescue
Begun: November 4, 1932; Finished: November 6, 1932
What I think of this book: I was quite disappointed in this book. It had
a very high recommendation but I didn't like it very much. It started out all
right at fi rst, with good descriptions but my interest petered out after the
chapter. I don't like books of this type as a rule. Recommended by: an
English teacher. Borrowed from: Library of Hawaii.
Stanwood Cobb, Discovering the Genius Within You
Begun: November 15, 1932; Finished: November 17, 1932
What I think of this book: When my sister saw me reading this book she
said, `Don't get egotistical,' but I think a book like this good for a person,
once in a while. Sometimes I get moody and a book of this type is helpful
in pulling you out of the dumps. I liked this book very much. Borrowed from:
Library of Hawaii.
Oswald Kendall, The Missing Island
Begun: November 24, 1932; Finished: November 24, 1932
What I think of this book: This is a quite mediocre book. After I fi nished
it I was sorry I had read it for it didn't do me any good, it didn't make me
work, and it didn't amuse me very much. I don't recommend it to anyone,
but some may like it.
