How about a thread for people looking for certain books, but they dont' remember the title?
When I was a kid, I read a couple of books that I'd dearly love to be able to read again, but I can't rmember their names.
One featured a boy, at home in cold weather, who is on a plane which crashes in the Arctic. The boy takes charge and teaches the other passengers how to build an ice house to keep warm. Meantime, a man who refused to follow him stays aboard the plane, where he freezes up and has to be rescued.
The other book takes place on an island. The protagonists are two teenage boys. They find a sunken submarine nearby, and have to help rescue the crew.
Not sure but could it be either one of these?

These are children's books, which must have been written in the 1960s. (I'm 50, and read these when I was 12 or so!)
Ah, I see. Didn't really know the timeline for your reading. I'll think abit more about this.
