Guess a Quote (10.07.14)

Guess a Quote_Anne Frank

Hello everyone! Is the weather getting cooler in your area of the country? Ours certainly is! We even light our wood stove for the first time yesterday morning.

Last week’s quote came from one of the most famous books that emerged from World War II. It’s from The Diary of a Young Girl, more widely known as The Diary of Anne Frank.  Congratulations to Mae for guessing correctly! I’ve read bits and pieces of Anne’s diary in other WWII books, but never the whole thing. Have any of you?

Here’s the quote for this week. This quote is from a fictional book that sticks to the WWII theme.

“But there are a lot of cigarettes available in Copenhagen now, if you know where to look,” he went on, “and so there will be others coming to you as well, I’m sure.”


Why was Papa speaking that way, almost as if he were speaking in code?

Happy Guessing!

  1. I knew the quote sounded familiar…I’m with you, I’ve only read pieces of it.

    Copenhagen–I know where that is, but I’ve never seen the quote before as far as I can remember. Sigh. 🙂

    • And nope, no cooler weather. Not really anyways. Sunday we were all going nuts with happiness because it was 58 degrees when we woke up, but it’s right back to 80s today. That’s Florida for you. 😛 Can’t wait for November…that’s usually when it starts to get a little cooler. As in, 60s. LOL

    Oh! Is it Bright Candles by Nathaniel Benchley? We recently studied WWII and read a LOT of books about it.
    P.S. This is my first time commenting on this blog, so I’m not really sure how things work. Could you explain please?

    • Actually, it’s not. I’ll have to look that one up, though.

      And what would you like explained? 🙂 I’d be happy to help.

  3. First time commenting..
    Okay, now I’ve got that off my chest, that is from Number the Stars by Lois Lowry.

  4. It’s from Number the Stars. Quite a different book from the other books I’ve read by the same author, but just as good.

    Thank you! And to answer your question in the post, yes, it is getting chilly here in MI.

  6. I think the quote is from Number the Stars. 🙂

    Ooo, that’s Number the Stars. Definitely. It was (still is) one of my favourite WWII books. 🙂

  8. Hey Leah, I have an idea for a guess a quote… 🙂

    Definitely getting cooler here! It’s gotten slightly warmer in the last few days though!
    My mom and sister have read Anne Frank” and I probably will someday, but haven’t yet.

  10. “Number the Stars,” I think. Quite a good book.
