Read full description of the books:
A superb little book I picked up recently. Ruskin Bond talks about his love of books and a bit of his life. He discusses his favorite books and how they entertained, helped him during different periods of his life. Also there are five excerpts. There is a list at the end of his favorite authors and their favorite works.
I enjoyed the excerpts to a varying degree. It is really nice to read about the many books he mentions. I hope to read more than a few from his favorites list. It was great to be introduced to quite a few writers I have never heard about. I loved best the parts about his life. They are the best.
I cannot fight the temptation to quote this from the book
"Today, teachers and parents and the world at large complain that the reading habit is dying out, the youngsters don't read, that no one wants books. Well, all I can say is that they never did! If reading is a minority pastime today it was even more so sixty years ago. And there was no television then, no Internet, no Facebook, no tweeting and twittering, no video games, no DVD players, none of the distractions that we blame today for the decline in the reading habit.
In truth, it hasn't declined. I keep meeting young people who read, and many who want to write."
