Mohammed | 17 comments Thanks.

It took me more than a month to finish Les Misérables but it was worth the time I spent. I also finished An Ideal Husband which was amusing. Anyway, I felt that I needed something light to read; so I started reading The Jungle Books and it is more adorable than I thought.

"Oppress not the cubs of the stranger, but hail them as Sister and Brother,
For though they are little and fubsy it may be the Bear is their mother. "
