I'm wondering with the reading for personal statements whether it's better to focus on books that are pretty broad or whether to go for more narrow topics - like focusing a lot on the Russian revolution etc. How much are you supposed to talk about these books? And can you discuss things you found interesting or do they just want you to focus on the skills you learnt from them?

It's fine to read either, but make sure your PS isn't entirely focused on the Russian revolution, for example. Have one book on that and another on another period of history. Make sure that whatever you talk about is covered in modules at your uni (so you wouldn't talk about that if doing a degree in ancient history for example)
