About meFrench, in my thirties, love literature and travel.
Bibliophile, keen on helping people, with a strong interest for working on what I love (Literature/Lettres Modernes/English).
So far, I managed to get an undergraduate Diploma in Literature (DipLit, 2009) and a BA (Hons., 2011).
In the past, my career included three years in Sheffield and seven years in Oxford, totalling two years of work in marketing and eight years of university admin work. These days, I enjoy teaching students, adults and foreigners in English, French and French as a foreign language.

About my libraryThere are many different books, from a wide range of themes and languages. I have read and used the books I placed so far on LibraryThing, and I heartily recommend them to you.
My passion for reading was set by the age of four, I self-taught myself to read fluently by then. Instead of imposing my various interests to others, I wish that people would read more, as part of a lifelong commitment, for pleasure and for fun, be them the sports pages of a newspaper, chick lit or biographies. Education is hard to come by if you are not given a chance by either your environment or your family, so reading can be the key that leads to intellectual fulfilment. The smallest effort can be very rewarding, I assure you!

Funny. I liked "Interview with the Vampire" - at least: somewhat - because I felt it was a new approach to vampire fiction. It's what she did with the rest of the "Vampire Chronicles" that disappointed me.

I totally agree with your evaluation of "The Mummy" though - one of the very few books I ever regretted buying.

'Double Helix'

I find some kind of organic unity
In the tower of my books;
They appeal to me,
They are a thing of beauty.

On and on, they climb up high,
Faster and faster to reach (us) skies.

'Daydreaming Ulysses'

On the road,
Down and out in Paris and London,
The Empire writes back -
Things fall apart.

On the wide Sargasso sea,
Ulysses thinks...
"I am the King of the castle"!

The last thing he wanted
Was the other side of Truth:
Can you forgive her?
Merci beaucoup. Joyeaux noel
Ma Francais est tres mal.
Was great to choose you book.
Je ne connaissais pas le livre de Neil Hanson sur le Grand Incendie. J'ai d'abord lu un condensé du Journal de Pepys en 3 volumes, puis la biographie de Claire Tomalin, enfin l'intégralité du Journal en 10 tomes... Inutile de te dire que ça m'a pris un certain temps. C'est un journal extraordinaire que Pepys a écrit là au jour le jour, avec des détails invraisemblables. Les rapports de Pepys avec ses collègues de travail montrent que rien ou presque a changé. C'est incroyablement actuel.
Tu es à l'université à Dijon ou à Besançon ?
Hello soniaandree,
I'm delighted that you have requested a 'friends' connection which as you will see I have accepted.
You have some interesting authors there in your favorites,including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle,who is one of my top writers together with H.G.Wells.
I've just read (for the second time) Susan Hill's 'The Small Hand' which is beautifully written. Hope to meet her next month at a book signing.
When I have had a chance to browse through your Library,I will get in touch again.
In the meantime, very best wishes from England.
Dear Sonia Andree,
Your note about yourself and your library is the most refreshing - printanier - text that this man of eighty has read for a long while.
God bless you!
Sonia, I heard many expressions to call a book lover but it sure is the first time I heard 'Book Whore' :))
Interesting library you got, I'm sure I'll come up with some good reading recommendations :)
Happy New year to you.
We Only Need

We need not count
every seed atop
the swaying grasses

or number the waves
rolling onto the rocky shore

or measure how far we can see
before the ocean vast
meets the sky immense.

We need not imagine
how many fishes
wander the depths

or where the stars reside
in the blue sky of day.

Nor must we be aware
of our hearts
pumping in our chests

or the movement of tiny sparks
in the neurons of our brains.

We only need sense
the One who creates
and sustains all things

and breathes when we breathe,
cries when we cry.

- Patrick Flanigan
