George Orwell's Diaries

Don't miss, starting on the 9th of August (to mark the 70th anniversary of the diaries being begun) each diary entry Orwell wrote will be published on this blog exactly seventy years after it was written (a bit like Harry Lamin), allowing you to follow Orwell’s recuperation in Morocco, his return to the UK, and his opinions on the descent of Europe into war in real time. The diaries end in 1942, three years into the conflict...

All courtesy of "The Orwell Prize"...could be very interesting!

This sounds really cool :) I'll have to make sure I get reading that when it starts up.
