Books

I believe that books are besides our own experiences a main part of our knowledge and therefore also a decisive part of our character. There is a saying:” Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are.” I think there is a similarity between books and friends and for this reason the choices for books might describe a person also quite well. In this sense “Show me your bookshelf and I will tell you who you are.” I would like to share some of my favorite books I have read through the years which were definitely an enhancement for my life.
