Click the covers to read the e-books
You are invited to read two new e-books written by 2 talented students at Wojciech Korfanty 2nd High School in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Poland. Both stories were written for the all-Poland literary contest “Day by Day” organized by Glossa – School of Foreign Languages, based in Cracow. These e-books are completely different from each other both in style and content.
“When I Was… a Girl” by Oliwia Penkala is a funny story of a boy who one day wakes up to a pink-walled room and, to his horror, discovers he is no longer a boy… This abstract situation becomes a pretext for exploring the differences in boys’ and girls’ minds, behaviours and choices. Hilarious dialogues and reflective observations make the story a funny, light read with a message.
“A Miscellany of Memories” by Justyna Kulesza is a story of Janina Tulip, a sixty-year-old woman who spent her childhood and youth in the communist Poland of the 1970s and having discovered the truth about the political system, she decided to leave the country forever. Thirty years later she finds her old diary at the attic and decides to share her dramatic life experience with her blog readers.
You can read these e-books both from your computer and Android devices, just click the book cover of your choice and enjoy the read!

This collection includes 4 diary entries written by 1a LO, 1b LO and 1c LO students at Wojciech Korfanty High School in Jastrzębie-Zdrój, Poland, for the all-Poland writing contest “Day by Day” organized by Glossa – School of Foreign Languages, based in Cracow.
Each of these entries is totally different in style and content, which makes them unique and worth reading. “A Soldier’s Daughter” by Oliwia Penkala is a story full of intense emotion and feeling that will undoubtedly move and thrill the reader. “Heading for California” by Justyna Kulesza is rich in vocabulary that adds a spark of humour to this teenage romantic journey across the ocean. “An Explorer from Space” by Aleksandra Lasia is a story of yet another journey – different both in distance travelled and purpose – and the narrator has a truly unearthly flair for spotting the strangest human behaviours and habits. “Into the Dreamland” by Małgorzata Skorupa rivets the reader’s attention and interest from the very first paragraph, taking you into a land of dreams, fairies and magic where adventure awaits.
I hope you will enjoy reading these stories as much as the authors enjoyed writing them.
