Tag Archives: too loud a solitude

From My Library…

What I loved about the lively world of a Book store, was the feeling each day to see what brilliant minds had written. Like a birthday… opening a new book felt like a gift. I am quite opinionated and you will learn more about that later. (But books I recommend looking up are worth buying in hard cover.) Here are some books from my library……

Opening TOO LOUD A SOLITUDE a novel by Bohumil Hrabal changed my life….. “Because when I read, I don’t really read; I pop a beautiful sentence into my mouth and suck it like a fruit drop, or sip it like a liqueur until the thought dissolves in me like alcohol, infusing brain and heart and coursing on through the veins the root of each blood vessel.”  Totally FAB!   Buy It!

So………..
