The day is short and night, and the cold wind is very suitable for staying in the room and reading around the furnace.
The purpose of reading this quarter is as trivial as before, but it is verified that it is a good book.
Meet Dickens in summer
[Mei] Lei Bradley
The author mentioned the source of inspiration during his writing: During the trip or conversation, there was always a scene printed in his mind. So one day, he couldn’t help writing it.
The short story in the book is more like a tray or curtain for these moments. We wait for the curtain to fall, and a delicate ending emerges.
The brain of Bradley must be light and fast. His story is magnificent and strange: astronauts suspended in space talk to Xiao Bernard, waiting for the warriors who fight against the dragon to hit the train. These
Most of them were published more than half a century ago “Playboy” or “Mr. Fashion”, and the gap between text and illustrations must be quite strong.
A stray cat named Bob
[U.S.] James Baowen
How to slow down from depression and regain confidence? Raise a cat.
This book sources a real story. The protagonist is an artist of the street performance. He is deeply plagued by drug addiction and crushed life. One day, he encountered a stray cat named Bob, and his life has changed …
This seemingly vulgar story begins, but it makes people read very ironing.
Jia Xingjia himself also felt that this was not like a book, because the book was composed of Weibo. He continued to update on NetEase Weibo for many years until the platform closed.
The number of words in each Weibo is limited, so each one is a slightly reduced to the short to the short cannot be shorter
And every story is a person’s life. They originally thought that they were just drafts, but after accident, they lived for a lifetime and scribbled.
A very beautiful book.
Small 癞 癞 癞 癞
[Spain] Anonymous Yang Yan translated
This book written in Spain in the 16th century tells the story of a stray child named Xiaozi followed by multiple owners to discuss life. It is probably the originator of a tramp novel.
This thin book can only be read in one hour. The translation is very smooth and there is no obscure. This is due to the excellent translator Mr. Yang Yan. She translated the style and humor in the original work, and she had no pretending to have a tone, and maintained the original Spanish style.
I do n’t know how to solve the complicated things. The university in my colleague asked me to recommend this book. The little sister -in -law in the book can learn from the learning of the strange owner. The trick is.
Brief History of Dunhuang Grottoes Art
When traveling to the northwest, Dunhuang is an option that cannot be bypassed; when you go to Dunhuang, you must appreciate the sculpture and murals in the grotto.
There are many layers of the beauty of the cave art, and no preparation tourists will be shocked by the millennium murals that have been coming, but if it only stays here, it is too regrettable. To do your homework a little, you can better appreciate the details of the Dunhuang Grottoes and the beauty of history. The purpose of this book by Mr. Zhao Shengliang is to provide such self -study textbooks.
It is not an exaggeration to say that it is a textbook. The style of this book is not an introduction to the surface of the surface, but from the historical stage, the context and change of Dunhuang art in various periods have been introduced in the historical stage. The emphasis on popular science and academics does not have the sense of frivolity of the general “brief history”. It is very suitable for buying a book and putting it on the bedside. There are many illustrations and exquisite printing.
The rainbow in the impression always appears in the international version of the news, the flying rainbow flags in Europe and the United States or Taiwan, and the pride on the brilliant smiley face. But the colorful colors on the cover of “Dragon”, but there is no
Vitality. Green is green, red is fading red, purple is purple, unlike the bright solid color of the sun after three prism. It seemed like being hit by the colorful bullet gun, all over the body, exhausted.
It is such a heavy book with ghosts, but it is faintly powerful. It is not just an expression of lust, but trying to discuss deeper topics: identity and existence. Are we a bunch of labels, or the only one determined by the love of others? When the traditional label -such as feelings, marriage, and family -after the disappearance of the society disappears, how to define yourself and how to determine your existence? The book did not give us the answer. It threw the question out. We may also find some of the power of survival during the answer process.
Mongolian conquest in world history
[Mei] Mei Tianmu
The impact of the Mongols on the history of the world has continued to this day, and even the formation of many political patterns dates back to the conquest activity of the world 700 years ago.
When we look back at history, we often ask: Why are Mongolians?
Why does this grassland nation living in Nenchu become a disruptive force that sweeps Eurasia? In addition to the strong cavalry tactics, what are the secret weapons of the Mongolians? When the old world became a whole, what unexpected changes have spawned?
This book rigorously answered the above questions, and it was not boring at all -even in the chapters of the Mongolians’ use of gunpowder, they also quoted the dialogue among the Bunny Brother.
Please call me in your name
[U.S.] Andrei Ai Xi Meng
This book was read on the subway. Although the weather turns cold, it seems that the temperature of Italian summer can still be felt from the text. Young thoughts are always poetry. The movie is not finished. The narrative of the story in the book is more personal, just like the stream is flowing.
Wait for night love grass
[Day] Liancheng Sanjihiko
The grassy grass is also called Yuejiancao, which represents “silent love”. This book tells five love stories. The truth of each story requires readers and protagonists to reason together to crack.
Orange is not the only fruit
[English] Jennite Winteson
The little girl who grew up in a religious family has a hand -made class. We can imagine that the strange children who are not surrounded by the surroundings will not be too pleasant to live in childhood.
But I love her, this weird child. Her uncomfortable and stubbornness is a perfect match, so she does not yield, and can even be said to be brave. Brave pursuing her love, even if the other party fled timidly.
The demise of the Great Valve of the Middle and Ancient Gate of China
[Beauty] Tan Kai
Before the Chinese translation of this book was put on the shelves, he went to hear the author Tan Kai’s lecture in one -way space. I thought he would be a Chinese, because the book quoted a large number of epitaphs, presumably a deep ancient literary skills must be interpreted.
But in fact, he was an outdated foreigner, with a ball head, as if he was inserted with a bun, and it felt like a fairy bone. His research ideas are quite scientific. Through statistical ways, he tried to answer a question with the unearthed Tang Dynasty epitaphs: the gatekeeper politics that lasted for hundreds of years in China, why did it disappear after the Tang Dynasty was destroyed, and it disappeared. Intersection
The conclusion of this book is very interesting. Unlike the traditional point of view, Tan Kai believes that the war in the late Tang Dynasty caused the gatekeeper to be destroyed on the flesh, so the gatekeeper politics that maintained blood and in -laws had died. Just like the cannon fire of the two world wars, it also consumed the European noble class.
Beijing and Edo
A very surprising exhibition was held some time ago, comparing the cultural relics of Beijing and Tokyo, showing the same and differences of the two Oriental cities in the 18th century. After reading the exhibition, I wanted to write a long article, so I found a lot of information, including this book.
The book is far from reading the exhibition. When writing a book, the author is not to tell stories to the science of amateur enthusiasts, but to seriously listen to the materials, summarize, and draw conclusions. The text is a monograph, so it is a bit boring to read it -but it is very useful. After reading it, it is preparing to write the income from the exhibits into an article. It is found that the exhibition has ended because the procrastination is too long.
20th century brief history
[Australia] Jeffrey Blaine
There may be any hundred years in the history of the world, and the century has not changed quickly.
When we review, we will find that the major events in this century are “worldwide.” The iron hoof of the war spread from the foggy British to the jungle of Myanmar. The curtain of the Cold War divided the world into two camps. The development of technology has made communication rapid, and the scientific progress makes the exploration dimension wider.
When we stood at the turn of the century, it seemed difficult to imagine that the Empress Dowager Cixi was still governing in the 20th century. The distance between us and her is still only a century. What happened during this period, why did it happen?
This is not a thick simple history that can help us review the recent history.
[Mei] Gay Tursti
There are too many stories in the 20th century, and every change is a slice of social evolution. Gay Trust, known as the father of the new journalism, in order to study the changes in the perspective of Americans’ lust, he ran to the massage home as a manager, and communicated with the members of the “sandstone” community to understand The concept is different.
He did not use data and cases to “analyze” or “inquiry” the essence of data and cases like traditional sociologists, but simply displayed. He tells the story in a non -fiction narrative, and the characters between each story overlap. Therefore, his narrative method seems to be changing the scene. At the end of the lawyer’s story, a magazine editor, then the lawyer will give the protagonist to the latter. The 150 -year extramarital affairs relationship in the United States spreads in front of us.
Li Changsheng has lived in Japan for many years and is an observer of the cultural life of island nations. His perspective is calm and out of the incident, focusing on three meals a day, allusions of literary genre, and local customs. These are all written in the pen.
Because it is essay, it is trivial and often repeats. But it is still a good entry book who knows Japanese style. We should know more about this neighboring country.
There is a Lumi warehouse in Dongcheng, Beijing. The flag people who used to enter the dragon’s entrance to receive Lumi every month. Because of the drought and flood, it is also called “hardcore crops”. After the Qing government was destroyed, the benefits of the Eight Banners were naturally terminated. However, the life of the flags has made them unable to eat and be unable to eat, so most of them have been in trouble.
Many “Jingwei Novels” use ordinary flag people’s lives under this change, such as Mr. Lao She’s “Zheng Hong’s” and “Tea House”. Ye Guangzen raised his perspective and based on the different destiny of a family member of the family. He described the ups and downs of the flags and nobles in the context of the change of the times.
Deng Youmei is another famous “Jingwei Novel” writer. He tells the story of the uncle of the flags in the context of the change of the era. This book is very thin. The way of telling the story is very similar to “The Biography of the New Children’s Heroes”. The story itself is not novel, but the description of the old things of the flags in the book is a rare historical material.
[美] Neil Gaiman
Neil Gaman is a master of storytelling, and his favorite story is Nordic myth. The mythology system on Scandinavia is one of the source of modern fantasy novels, which profoundly affects the popular culture of today’s society.
Because it is a collection of folk legends that has been passed down, the story of Nordic mythology is not complete, and there are even contradictory. Neil Gaman uses the existing story as the bottom, and the new bottle of old wine has shaped a simple and orderly mythology system.
Samalham’s Golden Peach
[Beauty] Xue Aihua
Samalham is an ancient city in Uzbekistan and an important transit station on the Silk Road. According to ancient books, this place is rich in a huge and golden peach, which is loved by the Tang Dynasty court.
American sinologist Xue Aihua used this legendary delicious peach as an attractive son, and it was based on the export products from various countries during the Tang Dynasty. Just like the golden peaches from Samalham, the records in history books often mixed with romantic legends. Xue Aihua’s task is to peel off the description of the imported products and restore their true colors.
This book is very interesting to read. When we appreciate the cultural relics of the Tang Dynasty, we can use it as a reference book to observe where the beautiful cultural elements come from before integrating the tradition.
The recommendation of the book this quarter is completed, read a happy reading ~
