Hi Guys,

你是否有过这样的计划:每天一小时读本英语小说,然后各种的没读成。

你是否有过这样的体会:拿本英文书做床头读物,却因生词太多,纠结于查还是不查,最后床头读物又换成中文的了。

不知你是否,反正我是啦。

Angell 是个好老大,派活的同时充分调动个人的主观能动性,人话说就是:你能干点啥就干点啥吧。

今天开始我会找本想读的书每天敲点放上来,和同好者分享。(周末休息)

重承诺是俺做人的原则,接了这活,看来能坚持每天读点书了。

对有追剧强迫症的人,也能强迫读点书了。不谢。共享。

第一本《 The Little Prince>  AuthorSaint-Exupery

Chapter I

When I was 6 yearsold, I saw a magnificent picture in a book named “True Stories” which is aboutVirgin Forest.

It showed a boaconstrictor swallowing a beast. Here is the copy of the drawing.

In the book itsaid:”The boa constrictors would swallow their prey entirely without chewing. Thereforethey can’t move and they will sleep for six months for their digestion.”

It made me think alot about the adventures of jungle and, finally, I succeed in drawing my firstpicture with a colored pencil. My drawing No.1. it looked like this:

I have showed mymasterpiece to the adults and I asked them if my picture scared them.

“Why would a hatscare anyone?” they answered.

My picture was nota hat. It was a boa constrictor that eaten an elephant. Sa I drew the inside ofthe boa constrictor in order to make adults understand. They always need theexaminations. My picture No.2 looked like this:

The adults advisedme to put the picture of boa constrictor aside, from inside to outside, andchange my interest in geo

Chapter II

I had been living alone, without anyone whom I could talk to. Until six years ago, I had an accident in the Sahara desert. Something had broken my engine. Since I had neither a mechanic nor a passenger with me, I prepared to finish the difficult repair job all by myself. It was a question of life or death. I barely had the drinking water for 8 days.

On the first night, I went to sleep on the sand a thousand miles away from human civilization. I was more isolated than a man on a raft in middle of ocean. So you can imagine my surprise when a funny little voice awakened me at dawn. It said:

“If you please…draw me a sheep!:

“What?”

“Draw me a sheep…”

I jumped to my feet as if I was struck by lightening. I rubbed my eyes slowly in order to see clearly. And I saw a little innocent boy who looked extraordinary. He watched me solemnly. Here is the best portrait, later on, I was able to make of him. But my drawing, of course, is certainly less adorable than the original.

It is not my fault. I had been discouraged by the grown-ups in my career as a painter. At the age of 6, I never learned draw anything except the insides of boas and the outsides of boas.

Now, I was staring at this apparition with my eyes widely open in astonishment. Don’t forget that I was in a place a thousand miles from the inhabited region. Yet this little innocent boy seemed neither to have lost his wa

When I finally managed to speak, I said:

“What are you doing here?”

He repeated the answer slowly like something serious:

“If you please…draw me a sheep…”

When the my stery is so overwhelming, we don’t dare to question it. Also absurd as it seems tome, a thousand miles from inhabited place and in danger of death, I took out a piece of paper and a pen from my pocket. But I remember I only learned about geography, history, arithmetics, and grammar, and I told the little innocent boy (with a bad manner) that I had never drawn the sheep. He responded:

“It doesn’t matter. Draw me a sheep.”

As I had never drawn a sheep, I copied one of two pictures I was capable of drawing: the boa constrictor seen from the outside. I was surprised to hear the little boy’s response:

“No! No! I don’t want an elephant in a boa constrictor. The boa is very dangerous, and the elephant is huge. Everything is tiny in the place where I live. I need a sheep.Draw me a sheep.”

So I drew one.

He watched it carefully. Then:

“No! That one is already sick. Do me another.”

So I drew another.

My friend smiled gently with indulgence:

“You can see it yourself…It is not a sheep, it is a ram. Look at his horns…”<

Chapter III

It took me a long time to understand where he came from. The little prince, who asked me a lot of questions did not seem to hear my questions. The words spoken by him were atrandom, little by little, that was all revealed to me. For example, when he saw my plane for the first time(I won’t draw my plane, it is a difficult drawing for me), he said:

“What is the thing over there?”

“It is not a thing. It flies. It is a plane. It is mine.”

And I was proud to make him understand that I could fly. Then, he cried out:

“What! So you fell from the sky?”

“Right.”I answered modestly.

“That is interesting…”

And the little prince broke into a clear peal of laughter which irritated me a lot.

I wish that people could misfortune seriously. Then he added:

“So,you came from the sky! Which planet are you from?”

You can imagine how intrigued I was by this half-confidence about “other planets”. I did my best in order to find more:

“Where are you from my little cute boy? Where is this ‘where I live’? where do you want to take my sheep?”

He answers me after a long silence:

“The good thing about the box you have given me is that he can use it as his house at night.”

“Of course, and if you are nice, I will also give a cord to tether it during the daytime. And a post.”

The idea seemed to surprise the little prince:

“Tether it? What a strange idea!”

“But if you don’t tether it, it will roam around, and it will get lost himself…”

And my friend had another round of laughter:

“But where do you think it would go?”

“Anywhere.Straight ahead of him.

Then the little prince remarked seriously:

“It doesn’t matter. In the place where I live, it i

Chapter IV

I had thus learned the second important thing: his planet was hardly any larger than a house!

But it did not astonish me too much. I knew that outside of big planets like the Earth, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, to which we have given name, there are also hundreds of other planets which are so small that people have difficulties in observing them through telescopes. When an astronomer discovers one of them, he gives it a number instead of a name. so he may call it, for example: "asteroid 3251.”

I have sound reasons to believe the planet from which the little prince came is the asteroid called B 612. This asteroid has been observed only once through telescope by a Turkish astronomer in 1909.

He had done a great demonstration of his discovery in an international Astronomical Congress. But nobody believed him because of his Turkish costume. The grown-ups are like this…

Fortunately, for the reputation of Asteroid B 612, a Turkish dictator ordered his subjects, underpain of death, to change to European costume. The astronomer redid his demonstration in 1920 with the elegant clothes. And this time, everyone accepted his viewpoint.

The reason I have told you the details about asteroid B 612 and its number is because of grown-ups love the numbers. When you talk about a new friend to them, they would never ask you the real important thing. They never say:”what is his voice like? What kind

Again, you may say to them: "the proof that the little prince existed is that he was charming, and he wanted a sheep. When we want a sheep, it is a proof that we exist.” The grown-ups would shrug the shoulders, and treat you like a child. But if you tell them: "The planet where he came from is asteroid B 612”, then they will be convinced, and will spare you all their questions. They are like this. You must not expect much from them. The children should be indulgent towards grown-ups.

 But, of course, we who understand life lack the sense of numbers! I would have liked to begin the story in the manner of a fairy tale. I would have liked to say:

Once upon a time there is a little prince who lived a planet hardly bigger than himself, and who needed a friend…” to those who understand life, that would have seemed to be true.

 But I don't like that people take my story lightly. I have suffered so much of the sadness. It has been 6 years that my friend left me with his sheep. If I try to describe here, it is in order to not forget him. It is sad to forget a friend. Not everyone has a
