Back in 2009, during the Frankfurt book fair, I remember seeing a note on The Bookseller website about a book called A Discovery of Witches. And I quote:
Headline has fought off competition from five other publishers to acquire the 2009 Frankfurt Book Fair's hottest fiction title, The Discovery of 
Witches by Deborah Harkness.
And further more:
The Discovery of Witches is aimed at the adult market and set in a world where four species—vampires, witches, demons and humans—co-exist. A young woman discovers a book in the Bodleian library with strange magical powers, changing her perception of the world around her, so that she can see the other species. Although there is a covenant preventing inter-species relationships, she falls in love with a vampire.
Headline deputy m.d. and publisher Jane Morpeth, who acquired the title, said: "It's just brilliant . . . it will be a major title for us", comparing the style to Anne Rice...
This was enough for me. I couldn't wait to read this new book. Fast forward to maybe a month ago when this gigantic parcel arrived. It was a proof copy of A Discovery of Witches. I remember thinking that it sounded familiar and then of course, I read the PR sheet and went: zomg, this is IT!
I am SO incredibly pleased to be part of the blogtour for this book. The writing is solid, the premise is cool, the research will blow your mind and the characters are engaging and I missed them and their story when I had to put the book away for work or to sleep.
But here, without further fuss, is my exclusive extract of the book. My extract is the final extract of this tour, and it is the fourth extract.

An ideal friend in my opinion is some one who I can feel comfortable being myself around. A person that I can relate and talk to about things and enjoy myself around. Someone who can be silly and tell jokes with when we are hanging out together. I think an ideal friend is someone who you can depend on when you need them, and someone you want to help when they need it too.

In 1783, the most popular man in Europe was the United States ambassador to France, Benjamin Franklin. Franklin with his calm eyes peering through the bifocals of his own invention, projected great learning and fame and captivated the people's imagination. He was always leaving his post at the embassy to watch the trials of a new invention called the air balloon.n November 21 1783, Benjamin Franklin arrived at the gardens of the King's hunting lodge in the Bois de Boulogne, on the outskirts of Paris, to witness an experiment. Two daring Frenchmen, Pilatre de Rozier of the Royal Academy and his friend the Marquis d'Arlandes, were planning to ascend in a Montgolfier air balloon, the first men in history to do so. The crowds gathered to witness the event opened a lane for Benjamin Franklin to pass.

At six minutes to two the aeronauts entered the car of their balloon; and, at a height of two hundred and seventy feet, waved their hats and saluted the applauding spectators. Then the wind carried them away towards Paris. About half a mile from the starting point, the balloon began to descend over the River Seine; but when they fed the fire under their sack of hot air with chopped straw they rose to the elevation of five hundred feet. Safely across the river they dampened the fire with a sponge and made a gentle descent in Paris.

I think that the use of e-mail is better than the phone.
1. I simply do not forget about the cases mentioned in the letters because the letters are in the Inbox and the folders are not expanded until it is done. According to the number of letters immediately see how much or little tails I have accumulated:)
2. Letters should not distract from the current work. A letter and waits for myself, when I'll get them.
3. Analyst Matt Cain (Matt Cain) of the company Meta Group conducted a study on communication preferences in the current IT companies. Answers were 387 senior managers of leading IT companies. The overall conclusion of the survey is as follows: Current leaders of the industry prefer to deal with e-mail, rather than with the phone. Moreover, e-mail leads to a clear advantage: 80% of respondents said they believe e-mail a more valuable kind of communication than a phone and 74% said that they would experience more difficulties in the loss of access to email 5 days than at loss of telephone service for the same period of time. Among the explanations for this situation, there are three of the most common: first, when using e-mail process of writing a response and its form can be very flexible, and secondly, the same letter can be sent to multiple people and not waste time for similar discussions with each, and, thirdly, from e-mails are "traces", and a phone conversation in the archive is not podoshesh.

Larionov Michael Fedorovich
M.F.Larionov was born in a family of the military medical assistant. In provincial Tiraspol have passed its childhood. In 1898 it has arrived in МУЖВЗ where studied at K.A.Korovin and V.A.Serova. In school Larionov has got acquainted with N.S.Goncharovoj, its become faithful companion.

For years of study it is necessary the early, impressionist period of creativity of Larionov. In the manner inherited from the French artists he created the whole picturesque series.

Intensity of colour, riches of picturesque invoices distinguish such pictures, as "the Pink bush", "Garden", "Fishes at a decline" (all 1904). These and to it similar products were a success at exhibitions of the Society of Russian aquarellists, СРХ, "the art World", on Russian exposition of Autumn Salon of 1906 in Paris.

In 1907 Larionov has opened for itself national primitive art - Russian popular print, a craft signboard and т. And. A primitiveness stage in creativity of the artist hardly probable not the most fruitful.

Larionov takes a great interest in so-called street culture. There are its series "Dandies" and "Hairdressers". At an exhibition "a jack Of diamonds" 1910 it shows the cloth "Bread" reminding a signboard of a bakery. At an exhibition "Asinine tail" 1912, organised by Larionov where also participated N.S.Goncharov, K.S.Malevich, V.E.Tatlin, and V.Shevchenko, M. 3. Walked, pictures from "a soldier's series" have been exposed. In them own impressions of the artist of military service which to it should be passed after the school termination in 1910 have affected

Larionov's primitiveness found inspiration sources even in intaking drawings and inscriptions.
In 1910th Larionov has proved as the brilliant organizer: he has headed group of young Moscow artists, in 1913 has prepared an exhibition of a popular print which included east and European national pictures, signboards, printing spice-cakes, etc., many - from Larionov's collection; has the same year held an exhibition icon-written originals and popular prints.

He takes active part in the art debates which were extended during that time. In particular, in 1913 debate on a theme "the East, a nationality and the West", preceding opening of an exhibition "Target" has taken place. On it Larionov and its group have accurately designated the "east" orientation. At an exhibition "Target" where products of artists-self-educated persons and children's drawings were shown also, Larionov has presented works from not complete cycle of "Venus" and four canvases "Seasons" (1912) which have been regarded by critics as a call.

Chickens kept for their fare fo eggs, it is better? Atlast you saw all announcements and boxes of egg which it is proud, declare "the country new" and "only from a countryside", "a farm new". Certainly it means, what hens are free to wander on areas and woods? Certainly is not present! If the egg box actually has not words the FREE RANGE, is exact eggs from intensive systems - batteru units, a canopy or has been deeply littered by canopies. However the majority of the British eggs is made on the integrated poultry cages. They never can spead wings, a scratch in the earth to callect or make a nest, the dust - bathes, searches for food which is tasty and natural, or even to go or run. I disagree with factories that they do with hens! It is necessary to give to hens freedon that they could live normally so it will be better for them!
