I have always loved to read books. But this year I feel like I am reading even more because I purposely make time just to sit down and enjoy reading. I regularly visit my local library branch, but also use their e-content. My public library is amazing – membership is for free, they always have all the latest books, and even offer many readings for free. Of course I also love to stroll through book shops where I also buy books every now and then. Now that the weather is turning cold – so cold in fact that the heating has already turned over (at the end of September!!!) – I find it very pleasant to stay inside, huddle with my cat under a blanket and read from my pile of unread books, which seems to be constantly growing.
Even though I normally read mostly chick lit, I right now prefer more serious topics and also tend to read more and more non-fictional books. I still love novels which are set in Turkey and esp. Istanbul, at the same time I try to get more background information, e.g. on Sufism. I am pretty certain I will read even more than these twelve books in the next three months.
1st row from left to right: Ian McEwan: “Nutshell”; Eugene Vodolazkin: “Laurus”; Dan Brown: “Inferno”; Rick Riordan: “Magnus Chase and the sword of summer”
2nd row: Karine Tuil: “The Age of reinvention”; Mary Beard: “SPQR. A history of Ancient Rome”; Joshua Hammer: “The bad-ass librarians of Timbuktu and their race to save the world’s most precious manuscripts”; Michael L. & Sarah Bennett: “F*ck feelings”
3rd row: Orhand Pamuk: “Silent house”; Elif Shafak: “The forty rules of love”, “The bastard of Istanbul”; Stephen Schwartz: “The other Islam. Sufism and the road to global harmony”
Do you know any of these? What kind of books are you reading?

Harry Potter steht auch noch auf meiner Liste! Momentan bin ich gerade am neuen Kluftinger dran… Aber danach kommt Harry!

Hi, vielen Dank für deinen Kommentar. Mir gefällt es richtig gut in Irland und ich finde, dass mein Englisch schon besser geworden ist. Wenn ich hier mal mehr Zeit hab, könnte ich mir auch ein Buch in Englisch kaufen, kennst du zufällig ein gutes Buch, das nicht zu schwierig ist?
