George Orwell was born on this day in 1903…


For a limited time, his classic novel 1984 is only $2.99 for Kindle!

Also stumbled today on this amusing quote from Orwell on book reviewing:

“Prolonged, indiscriminate reviewing of books is a quite exceptionally thankless, irritating and exhausting job. It not only involves praising trash but constantly inventing reactions towards books about which one has no spontaneous feeling whatever.”
