This is a fascinating blog to read. Each entry is 70 years old, to the day. His more political entries will begin appearing in early September. Right now, entries are mostly limited to daily observations about life in the summertime in England — gardens, weather, birds, etc. He also placed newspaper clippings in his diary, and these are put into the blog as well.
Serialized publications like these seem to make more sense online. With the Kindle and other linked devices, small and regular publication can reward readers and engage them routinely.
In fact, the diary is exactly akin to the blog, just a shift in media it took 70 years to accomplish. I’m glad to see the Orwell has made the leap.
