Come with us to London — a city as old as the Romans, and as new as the twenty-first century. There are places to go — from Oxford Street to Westminster Abbey, from Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre to Wimbledon Tennis Club. And things to do — ride on the London Eye, visit the markets, go to the theatre, run in the London Marathon. Big, beautiful, noisy, exciting — that’s London.

La Douleur

La Douleur

Автор: Duras M.

J’ai retrouve ce journal dans deux cahiers des armoires bleues de Neauphle-le-Chateau.
Je n’ai aucun souvenir de l’avoir ecrit. Je sais que je l’ai fait, que c’est moi qui l’ai ecrit, je reconnais mon ecriture et le detail de ce que je raconte, je revois l’endroit, la gare d’Orsay, les trajets, mais je ne me vois pas ecrivant ce Journal. Quand l’aurais-je ecrit, en quelle annee, a quelles heures du jour, dans quelle maison? je ne sais plus rien. Ce qui est sur, evident, c’est que ce texte-la, il ne me semble pas pensable de l’avoir ecrit pendant l’attente de Robert L.
Comment ai-je pu ecrire cette chose que je ne sais pas encore nommer et qui m’epouvante quand je la relis. Comment ai-je pu de meme abandonner ce texte pendant des annees dans cette maison de campagne regulierement inondee en hiver. La douleur est une des choses les plus importantes de ma vie. Le mot «ecrit» ne conviendrait pas. Je me suis trouvee devant des pages regulierement pleines d’une petite ecriture extraordinairement reguliere et calme.
Je me suis trouvee devant un desordre phenomenal de la pensee et du sentiment auquel je n’ai pas ose toucher et au regard de quoi la litterature m’a fait honte

Catherine the Great and Potemkin. The Imperial Love Affair

Catherine the Great and Potemkin. The Imperial Love Affair

Автор: Simon Sebag Montefiore

History’s greatest love story, Catherine the Great and Potemkin is a sweeping epic of sex, love, power, conquest and extravagance on a magnificent Russian scale. Not only was only was their romance wildly passionate but they were also probably the most successful political partnership of all, outstripping Antony and Cleopatra or Napoleon and Josephine. Their secret letters, which discuss other lovers, sex, wars, politics, arts and health, are surely the most intimate and extraordinary ever written by an empress or politician.

Oxford Bookworms Library: Stage 2: The Prince and the Pauper

Автор: Twain Mark

It is 1547 in London, and Tom is a pauper. His father sends him onto the streets of London to beg for money every day, and hits him when he brings nothing back. But Edward is a prince, the son of King Henry VIII, and he has everything. There is something very unusual about these boys: they are from different worlds, but they look the same. When they meet one day, a mistake puts each boy into the wrong life. So what happens when a prince lives as a pauper, and a pauper lives as a king?

I Totally Don’t Want to Play!

I Totally Don’t Want to Play!

Автор: Bonwill Ann

Hugo the hippo has his routine. He always goes skating with Bella the bird. In fact he always does everything with Bella. So when Bella makes a new friend and announces she’s going to the playground with Cressida (a crocodile) instead, Hugo feels a bit miffed. Once at the playground, everything seems to be made for two — the swings, the see-saw, even playing leapfrog. And whichever way the friends pair up, there’s always someone who feels left out. But there is something that they can all enjoy together and, when they discover it, it proves that three really is better than two! With wonderfully quirky illustrations from new talent Simon Rickerty and a great read-aloud text, this is a made-for-sharing picture book.
