The Blog

I see you have found yourself in the cob-webby depths of this blog. Welcome! This blog is about books and books alone. Mostly it will be reviews of the book variety, but occasionally I will partake in bookish discussion.Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 11.09.14 PM

What does “the bandar blog” even mean?

The “bandar-log” describes the group of monkeys who live in the Seeonee jungle in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. It is these blabbering monkeys (who know very little about most things) that inspired the name of this blog.

All the talk we ever have heard
Uttered by bat or beast or bird–
Hide or fin or scale or feather–
Jabber it quickly and all together!
Excellent! Wonderful! Once again!
Now we are talking just like men!
