    1. True quote..! I love the ‘All the world’s a stage’ poem too! We had it in school last year.. I was the only one super-excited about it..!Everyone else thought it was too boring and difficult..


      1. Yes Deeksha! I read the “Day of the Jackal” and then “The Odessa Files”, later “the Fourth Protocol” and last year I read “The Kill List” … and now you’ve made me wish to read them all over again 😉
