My Bookshelf

From the time I was a little girl, books have guided me. They have helped me see and understand the world and myself. I owe a debt of gratitude to all the brilliant authors over the last decades – I wouldn’t know what I know today without them.

I take great pleasure in exchanging books with friends and relatives, and then share and discuss with eachother what we think of them. During those conversations I noticed that every person connects to different parts of the story, and because our experiences are unique to us, books often lead to interesting and meaningful conversations.

The several life stories and anecdotes enriched my reading experience and inspired me to create this blog – which allows me to have conversations and share book recommendations with more interesting people than the ones I hold close. I hope the non fiction books to read on this bookshelf will help you find something that catches your interest and that it saves you the time and hussle of browsing through the millions of available titles.

Let’s join the conversation.
