"You of all boys should know that Man is the Storytelling Animal, and that in stories are his identity, his meaning and his lifeblood. Do rats tell tales? Do porpoises have narrative purposes? Do elephants ele-phantasise? You know as well as I do that they do not. Men alone burns with books." from: Luka and the Fire of Life by Salman Rushdie


"Ramchad loved the book above all the others that he possessed, even though he didn't like to admit it to himself. After reading it, when he placed it on the top of the fast-increasing book pile that now had five books, he began to feel the first stirrings of a book-collector's possessive pride." from: The Sari Shop by Rupa Bajwa


"Sometimes I would see myself as a book with bad binding. You know, like one more reader, one more face-down on the bed and I was going to spill everything, lose control."
from: EM and the big HOOM by Jerry Pinto



Browsing my shelf and my reading-lists, you'll find books in different languages. First of all there are a lot of German books. Well, I am German. Then you'll find quite a lot of books in Dutch. As I lived in the Netherlands from 2009 to 2011, I did of course read a lot of Dutch authors. I've always been reading English books, too, but in 2012 and 2013 I lived in India, so I read a lot in English. Now I am back in Germany and took up Spanish lessons again, which is why I started reading my first books en español.

My Lifetime Challenge (in German only, sorry):
