"Anyone who wants to understand the twentieth century will still have to read Orwell".
Timothy Garton Ash, "New York Review of Books"

Among these essays, "Shooting an Elephant", quoted by Emma Larkin in "Secret Histories, Finding Orwell in a Burmese Teashop", a must ! You can see my Comments and Review about "Burmese Days", on souram's bookshelf, about Emma Larkin.

Bienvenue dans le bookcrossing !

Bravo, vous avez capturé ce livre :) Vous avez eu raison d'oser le faire !

N'hésitez pas à visiter, explorer le site http://www.bookcrossing.com. NB: on peut changer la langue du site, cf. tout en bas de la page d'accueil, bande jaune change language.

Le bookcrossing permet de faire voyager des livres comme je le fais, en les "abandonnant" exprès en espérant que quelqu'un les prenne. Pour faire comme moi, il faut s'inscrire sur le site (indiqué plus haut). On peut alors libérer des livres après qu'on les a enregistrés sur le site, échanger (bookrings, rays...)
Sur le forum francophone, ou sur "bookcrossing Romandie.com", vous pouvez poser les questions qui vous titillent, vous trouverez toujours quelqu'un pour y répondre.

Si vous voulez - pas une obligation - vous pouvez en vous inscrivant indiquer que vous avez été parrainé par Souram. A vous de décider.

WELCOME TO BOOKCROSSING !

Looking forward to reading this .... haven't read any Orwell for ages .... so this will be like reconnecting with an old friend... he writes extremely well (but of course)! Hope I manage to release it afterwards and am not tempted to keep it on my shelf... (as one can always reread GO).
