Sophia Magdalena Scholl reading.
Scholl (1921-1943) was a German student and revolutionary, active within the White Rose non-violent resistance group in Nazi Germany. She was convicted of high treason after having been found distributing anti-war leaflets at the University of Munich with her brother Hans. As a result, they were both executed by guillotine. Her last words were “Die Sonne scheint noch”—”The sun still shines.”

Charity shop find! I picked up this old Everyman paperback edition of Mansfield Park from 1963 while browsing Oxfam today. A lot of people don’t like Fanny Price but I find her easy to identify with and really like this novel.

There are books that one reads over and over again, books that become part of the furniture of one’s mind and alter one’s whole attitude to life, books that one dips into but never reads through, books that one reads at a single sitting and forgets a week later.
Books v. Cigarettes, George Orwell
