Who here reads fluent French?
    #2276317 - 01/27/04 01:43 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Note to mods: I will take this down soon, but thought it belonged here for now.

A while back I ordered the book "Miserable miracle" by Henri Michaux about mescaline, not knowing it was written in French which I cannot read (doh!). I will send to anyone who is interested for only $5.00 shipping charges (may be more if outside the USA - will have to check) as it does me no good in my library.

PM me if interested. First reserve gets it.

Ma francais a deteriore depuis les ans passe, mais avec un peu de practique je peut parler et lire tres bien. Mes premiers neuf annees d'ecole etaitent tous en francais.

Je m'excuse pour les erreurs de grammair, et les accents absents.

Swami, If nobody else has reserved it, I'd be really interested. All of my elementary schooling was 100% in french, but I'm a little rusty now. When I immerse myself in it for a while, it comes rushing back and I'm near fluent again. Having an interesting book to read would be a great excercise.

I love the French language.  I love the way it reads and the way it is pronounced.  Very nice, you guys.  And lol @ nubious:  "D?sol? si je dissappointed vous"  :lol:

I have reserved the book for Phluck. He has 10 business days to get me a check to cover S&H. If I haven't received by then, then the next reservist (there aren't any yet) gets the book.

I might have to reserve it if Phluck can't make the nut. Mon fran?ais, c'n'est pas superb, mais je pense que ?a serrait assez. Puis, j'ai arr?te mes classes de chemie (?p?) apr?s l'onzi?me ann?e, est-ce-que tu pense qu'un comprehension du chemie plus--

Wait, I just read that 'may be more if outside the U.S.' thing. Well, if Phluck doesn't take it then I might... What's the subject matter of the book like? Is it like a history of mescaline or more of a how-to book? In any case, that was fun. I haven't written in french in a goodly long time, which is why every other word is misspelled...


--------------------
Don't worry, I'm wrong.

Shipping to Canada should be the same - not sure where you are. Check the synopsis on Amazon.com as I don't remember the specifics.

Phluck stated that he is sending a check this week so...
