Since August 9th it is possible to read the diaries of George Orwell online. Each entry belongs to an entry of his diary that was written 70 years ago.
I am desperately looking for the works of Thomas Ligotti, especially his essay "The conspiracy against the human race". This essay was online for a while but not anymore, unfortunately. Perhaps some visitor of this blog can help...
Since I have stated my favourite playlist, I also want to state my favourite books from 2007. It's hard to decide but:
Neal Stephenson - "Snow crash"
I read this book several years ago, but decided to reread it after I found it in a second hand bookstore and especially because I only remembered that I really liked it but couldn't remember the plot.
George Orwell - "Down and out in Paris and London" I read this (together with his book about the Spanish civil war) during my trip to Bosnia and it is absolutely worth reading. He describes his contact with poverty in a honest but also humorous way. Somehow it gave me strength while I was traveling alone in Bosnia.
The books from Béla Hamvas.
