wonderful reading

just read this book and fell in love with it … so poetic, so true, so magic, found myself in so many things Tilo says. and it’s not about the spices which for me are secondary … absolutely fascinating!


“die hüterin der gewürze” by chitra banerjee divakaruni

i absolutely want to reread it, but for now, i sent it to the next address on it’s journey, back to germany … hope you’ll like it, too.

thank you, jademond!

… and yesterday i have got some books a guy from germany brought to the island for me, placed them in the house of a friend whom i finally met yesterday at the beach:

opitz, osho & .. what i am especially curious to read: alexandra david-néel, mein weg durch himmel und höllen.


found this beautiful book at the library and read it to m:

el pequeño dali - der kleine dali

i love dali's paintings.

and his inspiring ideas

another inspiring man, one of my favourite writers:

handbuch des kriegers des lichts

reading this manual again … as a reminder, inspiration and to improve my spanish 🙂

thanks to the fact that this island mainly makes a living by tourism, one can find german, english, french, dutch … etc books even in the small libraries. no great variety; seem to be donations by tourists or immigrants. i am somehow fascinated by this one:

herrin der falken

i never before read marion zimmer bradley or anything else from the darkover series but i’d really like to read more of this. fascinating.

one year with harry potter

unbelievable … we finally made it. about a year ago, i started to read the latest harry potter to my son. we have read all harry-potter-books together … i.e. i read & he listened … & of course we both talked about it. somehow we found it difficult to find time for our reading sessions during the last year, so it took us quite a while to get through this book … 767 pages … i.e. about 2 pages a day … hmm 🙂
