The Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow [Large Print]
By

Rating
'What readers ask nowadays in a book is that it should improve, instruct, and elevate. This book wouldn't elevate a cow... All I can suggest is that when you get tired of reading "the best hundred books," you may take this up for half an hour. It will be a change.' A book of essays and observations by one of the finest humorists of all time, 'Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow' has remained a classic since it was first published in the late nineteenth century. Writing on a whimsically diverse range of topics-on being idle ('It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do'); on memory ('That is just the way with Memory; nothing that she brings to us is complete'); on being hard up ('Being poor is a mere trifle. It is being known to be poor that is the sting'); on being in love ('Love is like the measles; we all have to go through it. Also, like the measles, we take it only once')-Jerome K. Jerome has delighted readers over generations. Now part of the Speaking Tiger Ruskin Bond Selections, 'Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow' is a book for all seasons, and comes especially recommended for idle holidays.
