A nearly missed opportunity!
So one of my guilty pleasures is perusing other people’s bookshelves. I think it’s a great way to discover a facet of someone’s personality that they don’t necessarily verbalize, catalyze a conversation about a book we have in common, and well, who doesn’t like to be…
Hello sweetie :) namasteseven
I got your pidgeon….let’s take a look into my bookshelf
1) Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell
When I’m in need of peace and serenity..it’s my refugee “Our lives are not our own. We are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.” And Letters from Zedelghem are my favourite chapters
2) Into the Wild - Jon Krakuer
I crave freedom, nature and beauty.
3) Il deserto dei Tartari [The Tartar Steppe] - Dino Buzzati A lifelong wait for a great war. Magic realism
4) Anatomy of Restless - Bruce Chatwin
I wanted to be a traveller…well a restless traveller
5) Danubio - Claudio Magris
6) The Legend of the Holy Drinker - Joseph Roth
Austro-Hungarian are my roots …And The Donau is always blue in my dreams
7) The Great Gatsby- Francis Scott Fitzgerald
Roaring Twenties and passion
8) Breakfast at Tiffany’s Truman Capote
A cat without a name and a lifestyle of American geisha.
9) Éloge de la fuite - Henry Laborit
My life is in this quote “When the weather gets really harsh, the ship has only one option: to flee. Escaping the weather allows you not only to save the boat and crew, but also, perhaps, to discover new lands, away from falsely safe voyages and traders. In times like these, escape is the only way to stay alive and keep dreaming.”
