Just a few of my favourite bits and pieces at the moment.
The book is one that I haven’t had a chance to start yet but really looking forward to reading. It was a freebie from my boss (perks of a publishing intern) and is an uncorrected proof of the diary notes kept by Barthes during his travels in China in 1947 with a small delegation of French philosophers. I love looking at people’s notebooks and scrapbooks, there’s something slightly voyeuristic about it, and I like the way that the text is scattered including lists and sketches along with his intimate notations. I don’t want to pick it up yet though because I’m taking part in the book group on Twitter, so currently reading Jasper Fforde’s Shades of Grey. Are any of you getting involved? If you want more info you can find it here.
