books etc.

"The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. Now here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours."


This quote is by British author Alan Bennett and, for me, summarized exactly what reading (or indeed consuming any form of art) is all about. I´m sure everyone of you has a book, a film or a song which tells things about you while your own words fail to express it that precisely. Tell me, which book gave you that special feeling?

  1. too many to name... but that's what I love about reading or art as well, the feeling of not being alone with your strangest thoughts, feelings and fears
