“I cannot remember the books I’ve read any more than the meals I have eaten;
even so, they have made me.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The dark evenings are inviting us to grab a book and sit comfortably in the sofa ... I read a lot of work related literature about psychology, counselling, child develeopment and learning, but late in the evening I like to read different novels, poems and biographies. It is usually in the holidays, that I can go deep with a series of novels.
The long summerholidays in the countryside in my childhood were filled with outdoors activities and reading ... I remember reading the Five, Anne of Green Gables, Little House on the Prairie, and all Tolkien's books during the warm summerdays. Since then, books and holidays has been a perfect match for me.

In the mornings I'm reading just one Psalm and a short devotional. I keep coming back to my favorite devotionals, which are Oswald Chambers's My Utmost for His Highest, Søren Kierkegaard's Purity of the Heart is to Will One Thing, Ann Voskamp's 1000 Gifts and Watchman Nee's The Normal Christian Life.
I've been reading lately a few crime novels by a Norwegian writer Jo Nesbø, and I'm about to start reading a biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, called Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy.
For the Christmas holidays I've thought about diving into Karl Ove Knausgaard's selfbiographic series My Struggle. Knausgaard is a Norwegian author, who has written 6 autobiographical books.
I have a file, where I write the titles of the books, friends and colleques have recommended - It's nice to find the list, when going to library ...
Do you remember the favourite books from your childhood -
What are you reading at the moment?
