    Satisfying!

    Ruskin fills it near the brim, let it not spill, adore it then with a mint, let it float and dance with the tide,
    none jumps off the seat, but, reading these innocent plethora of tales reader is left satisfied!

    Don't think twice,buy it :D

    For all you Ruskin Bond lovers,this is an absolute treat and you need no reason whatsoever to order it. It's always nice to own a copy of your favourite author's best works,to read as and when you wish.
    For young,the middle aged,and the old,you can never have enough of Ruskin Bond. And add to that a discount of Rs.200...its reason enough to buy it.
    The only problem is a few misspelt words like "Ali'' becomes 'Ili' and 'sometime' becomes 'somet ime' in a few places,but that's nothing to worry ...

    “It is always the same with mountains. Once you have lived with them for any length of time, you belong to them. There is no escape.” – Ruskin Bond
