I’m reading quite a few short books of late. In a way, it is wonderful. I am able to see that it is not the length of the story that makes quality reading. I’ve not read much of Satyajit Ray’s works, so when I saw this book among the ten-minute reads option, I had no hesitation to pick it up.
I’m a big believer in CS Lewis’ words, “A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.” The genre of children’s fiction is one that I love to read. There’s innocence there, more often than not, and that’s very enjoyable to read, and remember. I came across this book in a friend’s post. Her daughter is the illustrator Mishti Shah. I liked the title, and so I picked it up for reading.
I mentioned in one of my earlier posts about some eBooks being there now which you can read in ten or fifteen minutes at most. It was nice to see a couple of books from Ruskin Bond in that list too. I have always admired the writing of Ruskin Bond. It’s simple writing that anyone can follow and enjoy reading.
The first of three Pottermore Presents books that were released last year, this book shares tales of heroism at Hogwarts, one of my favorite places to visit through my imagination! I don’t need a reason to read (er… reread) the Harry Potter series, and these three books add to that nicely.
