Book 4

  1. Meredith, Martin — The State of Africa: A History of Fifty Years of Independence (736 pages)
  2. Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o — Wizard of the Crow (766 pages)
  3. Coetzee, J.M. — Life & Times of Michael K (182 pages)
  4. Saint-Exupery, Antoine de — The Little Prince (101 pages)

Page count: 1785.

I found The Little Prince in a charity shop today for 50p. I think I'm quite possibly the only person alive who had never read it. So I bought it. And when I got home, I didn't have the energy, due to my cold, to do anything else, so I read it.

I don't really have anything particular to say about it, only that it is extremely beautiful, deep, and moving. I'm glad I read it, and I'm sure I will re-read it many times.

And if you, too, are one of the few who hasn't read it, I encourage you to spend a few hours discovering this little treasure.

I love that book. Even more in French than in English, but I love it in English too.

Alas, I wish I could read it in French.

I couldn't do it now. High school French class. Took us months, I think!
