Picture of library in black and white

I love to read and even more to talk about books. It’s always a pleasure to (accidentally) find someone who has read the same books and talk with him or her about their perspective of the written down. I also love to get reading recommendations and this page is a reminder for me which books I want and need to read, a starting point for discussions and maybe an inspiration for you.

“Long days and pleasant nights.”
