"I wear the black for those who've never read or listened to the words that Jesus said." - Johnny Cash

Listen to the New Testament (NKJV) read in its entirety by music legend Johnny Cash. After 20 years of encouragement from his mother to record the Bible, he approached the recording of the New Testament with "fear, respect, awe, and reverence for the subject matter."

Cash added, "I also did it with a great deal of joy, because I love the Word." Enjoy listening to one of the most distinctive voices of our time in this wonderful audio edition of the Word of God.

-> Madame Bovary, Free text (French + English + German)

Translated from the French by Arthur Schurig.

"Madame Bovary ist wohl einer der bekanntesten Frauenromane überhaupt und hat eine Unzahl Nachfolger gefunden. Umso erstaunlicher ist es, das es sich um ein Erstlingsroman handelt.

Flaubert schrieb seit seiner Jugend unermüdlich. Dennoch dauerte es bis 1856, als endlich sein erstes gedrucktes Werk im Feuilleton der Revue de Paris erschien. Eben die 1851 begonnene Madame Bovary. Der Roman wurde zum Skandal und trug sowohl Flaubert wie auch der Zeitung einen Prozess wegen Verstoßes gegen die Sitten ein. Der Prozess endete mit Freispruch und trug wesentlich zum Verkaufserfolg der 1857 erscheinenden Buchversion bei.

"Trump, as extreme as he is, is less an aberration than a logical conclusion - a pastiche of pretty much all the worst and most dangerous trends of the past half century. A one-man megabrand, with wife and children as spin-off brands...

Remember when it all seemed to be getting better? Before Trump happened? Naomi Klein, internationally acclaimed journalist, activist and best-selling author, shows us how we got to this surreal and dangerous place, how to stop it getting a lot worse, and how, if we keep our heads, we can make things better.

No Is Not Enough reveals, among other things, how Trump's election was not a peaceful transition but a corporate takeover, one using deliberate shock tactics to generate wave after wave of crises and force through radical policies that will destroy people, the environment, the economy and national security.

Travelling in Europe with her family, Daisy Miller, an exquisitely beautiful young American woman, presents her fellow-countryman, Winterbourne, with a dilemma he cannot resolve. Is she deliberately flouting social convention in the outspoken way she talks and acts, or is she simply ignorant of those conventions? When she strikes up an intimate friendship with an urbane young Italian, her flat refusal to observe the codes of respectable behaviour leave her perilously exposed.

Livre Audio disponible sur Audible.fr

On connaissait une dizaine de lettres de Lou à Guillaume Apollinaire. Grâce à une découverte récente dans les archives du poète, c'est désormais près de cinquante nouvelles lettres qui sont accessibles. Lou, amante volage d'Apollinaire, assume sans culpabilité libertinage et liberté d'expression mais ne reste pourtant pas indifférente aux silences de Guillaume. Le poète apparaît alors moins comme le jouet d'une maîtresse frivole que comme celui qui a choisi de vivre discrètement une nouvelle aventure avec Madeleine Pagès, sa fiancée d'Oran. Aussi, l'image de Lou comme celle du poète d'Ombre de mon amour se voient enrichies et sensiblement modifiées par ces lettres, qui appellent une relecture des Lettres à Lou dont blancs et silences sont enfin comblés. ©2018 Éditions Gallimard

It’s only two weeks before an asteroid turns home to dust. Though most of Earth has already been evacuated, it’s Samantha’s job to catalog plant samples for the survivors’ unknowable journey beyond. Preparing to stay behind and watch the world end, she makes a final human connection.

As certain doom hurtles nearer, the unexpected and beautiful potential for the future begins to flower.

'Everybody knows now that Ulysses is the greatest novel of the century' Anthony Burgess, Observer

Following the events of one single day in Dublin, the 16th June 1904, and what happens to the characters Stephen Dedalus, Leopold Bloom and his wife Molly, Ulysses is a monument to the human condition. It has survived censorship, controversy and legal action, and even been deemed blasphemous, but remains an undisputed modernist classic: ceaselessly inventive, garrulous, funny, sorrowful, vulgar, lyrical and ultimately redemptive. It confirms Joyce's belief that literature 'is the eternal affirmation of the spirit of man'.

'The most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape' T. S. Eliot

Un certain 21 juin eut lieu en Angleterre la révolte des animaux. Les cochons dirigent le nouveau régime. Snowball et Napoléon, cochons en chef, affichent un règlement : "Tout ce qui est sur deux jambes est un ennemi. Tout ce qui est sur quatre jambes ou possède des ailes est un ami. Aucun animal ne portera de vêtements. Aucun animal ne dormira dans un lit. Aucun animal ne boira d'alcool. Aucun animal ne tuera un autre animal. Tous les animaux sont égaux."

Le temps passe. La pluie efface les commandements. L'âne, un cynique, arrive encore à déchiffrer : "Tous les animaux sont égaux, mais (il semble que cela ait été rajouté) il y en a qui le sont plus que d'autres."

 "Sur ce sentiment inconnu dont l'ennui, la douceur m'obsèdent, j'hésite à apposer le nom, le beau nom grave de tristesse. C'est un sentiment si complet, si égoïste que j'en ai presque honte alors que la tristesse m'a toujours paru honorable. Je ne la connaissais pas, elle, mais l'ennui, le regret, plus rarement le remords. Aujourd'hui, quelque chose se replie sur moi comme une soie, énervante et douce, et me sépare des autres."
