A farewell to arms

Hemingway, Ernest
I read this book because I see his stuff on various great books lists. I did not care for it. I probably will not read any more of his stories, unless they are VERY short. Anyway, this one is about some war, a newborn baby dies, the mother dies, it is a metaphor for war or something, oh crud, I gave it all away!

The cupcake queen

Hepler, Heather
Penny's mother starts a cupcake store in the small town of Hog's Hollow. Penny works there, decorating the cupcakes. She makes a few friends at middle school, but she makes a few enemies, too. I enjoyed the story very much, but the characters seem very mature for ninth graders.

The road to Dune

Herbert, Frank
Written by Frank Herbert, his son Brian, and Kevin J. Anderson, this volume of various stories, alternative versions, and the orginal version of Dune is pretty good, especially considering I was pretty tired of Dune after reading the first three books and also the serialized version of Dune, back in the day.

QUOTE:

"The cancer was in remission, and his health was good so he probably had a few more years. Don't beg for more, he chided himself. Take however many good days you can get and enjoy them. The trick is knowing when you're having them."

QUOTE:

Radar bomb deliveries were a delight for the doctor... After a few fumbling attempts and one extremely long bomb--the British range controller told hiim that he was supposed to bomb the island and not France, even though he thought it was a fine gesture.--Page 137
