Missed Connections: Love, Lost & Found

I love this book. From the moment I discovered about it through a vimeo video about Sophie Blackall to the moment I read it. The illustrations are wonderful and the back story on the concept is very touching. Its life changing and inspiring like post secret.

The Varieties of British Political Thought, 1500–1800

There is at present no overall history of English and British political thought and literature in the early modern period.

Charming the Bones: A Portrait of Margaret Matthew Colbert

Let me just say right off that only about ten books in the world get five stars from me, so four stars is a great compliment and a sign that Charming the Bones is well worth investigating.

Aside fro...

Gendarme...rie, ton gendarme pleure

À travers les yeux de son auteur, ancien gendarme devenu policier, cet ouvrage décrit le fonctionnement d'une institution vieille de plus de 200 ans. Mais plus que cela, ces écrits représentent le récit unique de la vie d'un gendarme ordinaire, ses enquêtes, ses joies, ses peines et les difficultés qu'il a rencontrées au quotidien pour exercer son métier dans de bonnes conditions. Tantôt acerbe, tantôt révérencieux, ce témoignage « v...
