Disney High: Cultured SavageryShere Khan kept his two favorite books on his nightstand.Disney High: Cultured Savagery by CharlotteACavatica
The second most-read was Sun Tzu's The Art of War. He'd had it since he was a young man, and he had read it through roughly a hundred times. Shere Khan treated it a bit like a prayer book, reading one maxim a day as a routine, more if his heart was in need of soothing.

Fortunately, his pain is an old friend and he knows how to host it.
