I skipped the #bookstore prompt for #riotgrams because I didn‘t want to “accidentally” buy a bunch of new books. So now, for #summerschool, here‘s my small non-fiction shelf. (Some humour mixed in here as well.)

#AnthonyBurgess #polyglot #languages

"Before we can study language coolly, we must strangle our group prejudices; we must explode a great number of hoary fallacies, themselves derived from emotional attitudes. As no language is either beautiful or ugly, so no language in intrinsically either superior or inferior to another. The fact that English has become a world auxiliary is no evidence that it is a better language than Basque or Finnish;(24)

The sun is trying to come out for the second time this week. To make up for the lack of sun in the picture, have it in the title instead! #bookandsun #splashintosummerreads @Tiffy_Reads
