''Le Monsieur De La Petite Dame''

by Frances Hodgson Burnett

A quick read about ugly but too good husband, a pretty wife who is in misery upon her choice a handsome cousin who was a fool at first then a desperate lover in the end. A happy ending with the husband & wife going together in the end. It was not so engaging but when once began with it so one must should complete it for the sake of knowing the story. The writing style is brilliant as expected.
Some quotes from the story that i admired
"It is all over. Let it rest. The pain of to-day and tomorrow is enough for us. We have borne yesterday; why should we want it back again?"
What happiness is so keen as one's briefest pain?

''Fin Tireur''

by Robert Smythe Hichens

A short story full of sentiments I would say. Thoroughly well written and was all about taking taking decisions at the right moment and never regretting it. (as i assumed)

''And That's How It Was, Officer''

by Ralph Sholto

I am not a science fiction fan, but this was an amazing read as there was no scientific terms to ponder upon. An enjoyable read with witty dialogues and circumstances interwoven together in such a way that it was not easy to put it down easily, though it was a short story. It was an entertaing read.
And I got an awesome quote in this short story which is quite endearing.
\\\"\\\'May we all find our Shangri-La\\\"

Come Out of the Kitchen!

by Alice Duer Miller

An entertaining and amusing read. The hero was charming and the heroine fiesty and likable. One must read it once. Thoroughly a good and pleasant read.
