I am reading both fiction and non-fiction titles at the moment and enjoying them immensely. So today I bring you a teaser double-shot!
Little Princes is the refreshingly honest and uplifting story of Conor Grennan, a young man who sets out looking for adventure and finds true meaning.
As it turns out, wondering what you’re supposed to do in an orphanage is like wondering what you’re supposed to do at the running of the bulls in Spain – you work it out pretty quickly. I carefully closed the gate behind me, turned, and stared for the first time at a sea of wide-eyed Nepali children staring right back at me. (Page 18)

I am a captive audience to Amor Towles’ Rules of Civility. The prose and story are delicious…
It was time enough, as the poet said, to murder and create – or, at least, to have warranted the dropping of a question on one’s plate. But Val counted few backward-looking habits as virtues; and in regards to the mysteries of my past, as in regards to so much else, he was a gentlemen first. (Page 6)
