We read many books away – they entertain us, are fun, allow us to disappear into other worlds for a while and give us a good feeling. And that’s just as well! But books don’t always allow us to immediately return to our everyday lives as if nothing had happened. Some surprise us in a lasting way: they keep us busy even after we finish, make us think, inspire and move us.
Because in books we not only find imaginative stories and wonderful characters, but also learn a lot about life and ourselves. Not every book changes our lives immediately, but they can be wonderful eye-openers and motivation and give us perspectives that we might have previously thought of would not have come in a dream.
How do people live in other countries, what challenges do they face, how do we manage digitalization or what is actually in our food? No matter whether it’s a captivating novel, a groundbreaking essay or an exciting biography: in the gallery we introduce you to books that are worth reading and that we haven’t let go of so quickly.
