Abenteuer im Kopf

On our journey on earth we have limited time.

Thus, it is of utmost importance what we put in our mind.

Because we have to live with it 24/7.

Here you are going to find books I recommend because I have read them more than once.

Time is valuable, yet not scarce. So I take my time reading a book. Well, OK, sometimes I catch myself trying to get on with it cuz I am curious about the next. It’s a simile to a general state of mind that is always grasping for ‘next’, whatever it is. It is a state of discontent and restlessness, let’s face it.

I find especially these books fascinating for several reasons. And i urge you to take your time reading any of those. Some of them might turn out as page-turners for you, some won’t. But be aware that all are worth your precious time. Guaranteed to blow your mind. I’m positive. Every single one of them has eye-opening potential.

I know there are many top-lists out there. This is a list i create for all of you who’d like to get to know me a lil better. It’s being updated on the go. I spent time with these books. A lotta time 🙂 As mentioned before, these are only books I have read at least twice.

Comments on these books are very welcome! How did you like it? What was it you liked about it? What do you remember most vividly? Did you also read it more than once? What changed at the second reading? What did you find out by rediscovering dimensions overlooked before? … … …
