Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them all – H.D. Thoreau

  • Do you love reading?
  • Do you think that the books you read say a lot about the person you are?
  • Do you rush to the end of the book to find out how it finishes?
  • Or do you slow down towards the end of a good book because you don’t want it to finish?
  • Do you love choosing a new book to read?
  • Or does it stress you out to have to pick one for a trip because you might not like it and have nothing else to read?
  • Do you think there is a moment when you are ready for a certain book?
  • Do you wish you’d read certain books because they are classics and have thus become ‘must-reads’?
  • Do you feel bad because you haven’t read certain books and feel that as a booklover you should have?
Are you able to name your 3 favorite books?
The ‘love currently’ and/or ‘all-time-favorites’?
Go on then… Post them in comments for me.

    The complete collection of Julio Cortazar’s short stories would decidedly be my favourite reading material.

    best wishes!

    For my romantic side, “Love in the time of cholera” by Gabriel Garcia Márquez, for my spiritual side, everything by Eckhart Tolle.

    I love to read! I always have :) I don’t have a favorite book or author. They vary with time…Just to mention some names I love Gabriel García Márquez, Kundera, Eco, Orhan Pamuk…there are sooo many :) Great questions the ones you have posted. They have made me think a lot.

    Have a lovely week,

    My bookcases are full, and I don’t have a thing to read.

    Depending on when you ask me my favorites are: Kurt Schwitters, Gustav Meyrink and Guillaume Apollinaire.


    Sholem Alejchem, Jorge Luis Borges, Alfred Kubin “Die andere Seite”
