To print or not to print

Modifié le : 2019/08/04

A reader of the moment gleaned from a closed Internet network, tells me he really likes Les Années-rebours. He borrowed it from the library. He would have liked to have bought it, in real life, in this paper that is beginning to fail us, among writers.

As he is not fond of electronics, this reader does not want, and cannot buy an ePub copy. I no longer have copies of this book. I don’t even have a personal copy of L’Effet Casimir… However, there are now services, such as PrintBookbaby, that would allow me to obtain one hundred copies for eight hundred dollars. It is a small investment, indeed, which would bring me practically nothing, but which risks nothing has nothing? And the idea here is not to make money, but to keep a book alive.

On the one hand, there is this transitional world where literature no longer knows which support to rest. On the other hand, this reality forces us to make very personal and sometimes illogical choices. I have a lot of expenses right now because I’m renovating my apartment. However, I am tempted to satisfy this reader, who tells me he wants to say to friends about it.

I don’t know if I insist too much. I will be told to forget these texts, which are now relegated to the Greek calendars of the archives, and to continue writing in the present. But those who say this do not write or are too successful in distracting themselves with the past. Having re-read them, I know that these texts are beautiful, that they still have a stunning effect on me and that they are appreciated.

Ah ! this major procrastination of a minor writer…

    How's it going, vervilleguy?

    Don't you wish you could be Instagram cool?

    Well, today I will teach you the best way to amazingly change forever the way you Instagram.

    I want you to imagine that it's Friday and you have just woken up from a sound sleep.

    You roll over in bed to check your cell.

    Opening up Instagram.

    Hmmm, you think, Over 561 likes on one picture.

    You put your soft slippers on and head to the kitchen for some tea. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again.

    Bam! Another 87 likes.

    Ding—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They are asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    A grin makes its way on your face as you read another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.

    As you sip your tea, you start typing up a response. But then your cell buzzes.

    Wow, ANOTHER message. You close your cell and throw it in the bag. Time for the gym.
    Listen, vervilleguy, most people just aren't in control of their life. Seriously, they can’t even get themselves to munch a balanced breakfast, much less hit the gym.

    My job is to take people from Instagram nobody to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds ridiculous, but results don't lie.)

    Now, what if you could raise your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    It is not complicated to do, although almost no one does. Just check out our website. There, you will learn how to garner Instagram followers and likes like mad...without even trying.

    Our lovely, confidential service quickly sends likes to your images a few minutes after you have posted them.

    The "Top Post" section, all of a sudden, doesn't seem that far away.

    This is all great, but you have actually got to put in the work to make it happen. Actually, it's not real work.
    1. Visit
    2. Put your Instagram username.
    3. 10 - 15 likes are going to be sent to your three most recent pictures. Just like that.

    Being a regular staple on that page will supercharge your growth 10x, easy. But if you want the fame, you’ve got to reach for it. Are you ready?

    See you soon.
