My Reading List

 

I love reading, it’s as simple as that. The act of reading is manifold – it can entertain, educate, relax, thrill, enlighten or guide me. Reading works at home, in the train, in the park or on a plane. Written language can make me cry or laugh, wiser or daft.

To share my passion with you and also to keep track of my own library, I started this reading list. I try to keep the balance between fictional and non-fictional books, but there are just to many interesting books out there, I’m also always curious what others read, too. So please feel free to get in touch if you have a recommendation, a question or if you want to discuss a particular book.
