    I have just finished reading Orwell's 1984

    If you could inspire me to read a book.

    I'll have your babies. Legit. I only read on the train because I don't want to stare at strangers. I read off my smartphone. I enjoy reading but lately I've been too lazy. Help me.

    because ... for a while I'm taken away from reality and put into a totally different world. I like that feeling.

    I LOVE reading books - especially biographies

    (I was Hitler Youth Salomon, Escape from camp 14, Nelson Mandela), poetry by my favourite author Khalil Gibran ("The nymphs of the valleys") or books about true crimes. My private library is overfull with books and I´ve read all of them many times! :-)
