quick read

"Brenda, Her School and Her Club" #
by Helen Leah Reed

{carried over from last week}
I wanted to read this because of
the title; I love books about clubs.
and books about school.  However,
this book did not hold my interest, and
I'm not finishing it.
Thank God it was a FREE book.

"Mamma's Boarding House"
by John D. Fitzgerald
[fiction based on the author's family.]

as well as the similarities are fascinating; as 
are those between these books and the author's
"Great Brain" series.)
