Sadly I developed a love of reading later in life but now I consider it an activity especially significant in this existence.

It shapes how we see and feel reality and it gives great insights for life and art making, so it makes sense to share this passion with more people and hopefully bring more joy in their lives.

Here’s a list of the most memorable ones.
