The Foreigner

by Ralph Connor

An exciting story that relates the pre-revolutionary life in Eastern Europe to the "new" world of Canada. I enjoyed it.

The Sky Pilot in No Man's Land

by Ralph Connor

I loved this book about patriotism and courage and the strength of morality. I passed it on to my teenage sons who loved it too. My son who is becoming an Army Ranger has patterened his outlook on the Sky Pilot.

The Canterbury Puzzles

by Henry Ernest Dudeney

I've not read this yet, but thought I would add a note in reply to the earlier 1 star review.

As stated, this does not include the illustrations, but there is a link in the text to a .zip file that contains all the illustrations. (http://www.gutenberg.net/dirs/2/7/6/3/27635/27635-h.zip) Once you have downloaded this, they are named according to number of the pager they are on. Unfortunately, the standard text files available here are not correctly paginated. I have discovered, with some playing around, that the following settings produce a .pdf the with the correct number of pages. Start by selecting "PDF-custom" in the download box. When the next screen loads, select the "iLiad" Preset, and then amend the dimensions to 116x149, leaving the other options as they are. I haven't checked yet that all the illustration tags are exactly on the correct pages, abut hopefully they're not too far off, now I have a file with the right number of pages.

Anyway, I hope this helps someone else. I'll post a proper review when I've had a read.

J.J. White
Apart from being able to surf (the ocean, not the web) and singing and whistling at the same time, J.J.

His latest book, Deviant Acts, is no exception and deals with a ex-soldier/heroin addict who finds himself in a situation where he needs to play the hero. As our author of the day, White reveals how relatives of his inspired this book and why his friends call his wife "Saint Pam."
