Reading Experience:

Evidence:
'I read what I call semi-serious novels. That is, it's got to have a love story woven through it, but at the same time well written, unlike the trashy love stories of Ethel M. Dell or Ruby M. Ayres, kin...I liked books by Phillip Gibbs: "The Nettle Danger", "The Sons and Others": "The Amazing summer", and now his newest "Through the Dark Night", which brings war events almost up to date. It isn't anything new, but at the same time, I enjoyed reading them.....'
