I loved The Neverending Story but this was just depressing.
#fallintofallreadathon @bookriot

LaLecture I never made it through that story either. I always thought it was because I only own the audiobook and I don‘t like audiobooks. But maybe it‘s just boring 😂😅. I will give it another try though one day. And I have to read the Neverending Story yet. I‘ve only watched the movies as a kid. 14mo
DuckOfDoom I read this as a kid in German, and it worked for me then, but I don't know of I would like it now. Maybe it's time for a re-read if I can dig up the old copy of it at my parents house 🤔 14mo
jfalkens @LaLecture I haven't seen The Neverending Story movie yet but I loved the book so much! I can't recommend it enough! 14mo

I hate this cover, but I loved the book. I finished this during #24in48, and given its message about time, found it ironic that I was tracking my hours & minutes spent reading it. 😏 This had a slow start for me, but I loved the ending. The themes it explores really made me reconsider the way I perceive time as an adult—spending or hoarding my time, whether I have enough time—there‘s a wonderful message here about living rather than scheduling.💜

Leniverse I loved that book as a child! I keep meaning to get it for my kids. There's a movie too, but I don't know how well that had aged. 1y

For #top3mustread here are three books that I always recommend to friends.

Mini review: Written by the author of the Neverending Story, Ende paints a picture of a little girl who‘s greatest gift is that of listening. She helps everyone in her village by listening to them....until the Men in Gray come and make the villagers obsessed with time. Now Momo has to go to Father Time to save the village.

mooingzelda I've only read (and loved) Neverending Story so it's good to hear of other works by the same author! 2y

People never seemed to notice that, by saving time, they were losing something else. No one cared to admit that life was becoming ever poorer, bleaker and more monotonous. The ones who felt this most keenly were the children, because no one had time for them any more. But time is life itself, and life resides in the human heart. And the more people saved, the less they had.

Since I misunderstood today's prompt of #FirstBooks here are some of my first books.
Only "Das doppelte Lottchen" and "Die Mondmuschel" were actually once my books, the other books I bought my kids because I loved them as a kid.

One of those books I used to love as a kid - but remember very little about now, beyond the terrifyingly creepy men in grey, who were out to steal your time. And a tortoise 🐢.

I really should reread this. #timeaftertime #augustgrrrl @Cinfhen

JazzFeathers Same here. Momo was onr of my favourite books as a kid. I really need to reread it 2y
MariaW As a kid I loved the book - mostly because of the turtle. Ende used a lot of turtles as characters. 🐢🐢🐢 The movie is a good one as well. 2y
RachelO @JazzFeathers I remember reading it so many times. ❤️ 2y

Taayasbooks @TheBookDream it sure is. :) But unfortunately it has not yet been dubbed in English. It just hit the theatres in Spain and was released on DVD in Japan, but so far there are neither English Mara books nor the movie :( 2y
TheBookDream Eh. Maybe I'll tackle it in Spanish. I don't know a lot, but more than German. Got a couple friends that know German though. Maybe they'd be interested. 2y

Ich lese nun seit fast einer Woche schon an "Momo" von Michael Ende. Das liegt aber nicht am Buch, welches mir bisher gut gefällt, sondern an der mangelnden Zeit. Ich hoffe, dass ich bald weiterlesen kann.

Sarah83 Tolle Ausgabe 😍 3y
fraencisdaencis @Sarah83 Ich bin auch echt froh, dass ich sie gefunden habe 😊 3y
Sarah83 Ich habe noch eine alte Ausgabe vom Buchmarkt von dem Buch aber leider noch nicht gelesen. 😣 3y

Buechersuechtling @fraencisdaencis Ich hab erst gedacht, das wär ein DVD-Cover. ? Ungewohnte Ansicht für mich in diesem Digitallook. Aber irre‼️?✨ @Sarah83 Lies das Buch, es wird dir gefallen, da bin ich mir sicher. Ich bin auch nicht dafür beim Lesen zu hetzen, zumal bei dieser Geschichte nicht. Aber es hat "nur" ungefähr 280 Seiten, so dass man es gut in ein bis drei Tagen lesen kann. Wenn man, anders als die arme @fraencisdaencis, Lesezeit hat, natürlich. ? 3y
Sarah83 Ok. Dann werde ich das mal bald tun. Erstmal die zwei angefangenen beenden und dann schauen wir weiter. 😎🖒 3y
Tasau Momo ist so ein schönes Buch. Ich habe es in meiner Jugend mehrfach gelesen und natürlich auch gesehen. 3y

Ein Buch, das viel mehr als nur ein Jugendbuch ist. Jede/-r sollte die klug erdachte, wunderbar-fantastische Geschichte mindestens einmal im Leben gelesen haben, finde ich. Ehrlich.

Heute, als Erwachsene, rührt sie mich noch mehr als als Kind.
Allein auf solche Ideen zu kommen: Graue Herrn ?, Kassiopeia ?‼️?

Ein wunderbares Buch über Menschlichkeit, das man unbedingt als Papierbuch lesen sollte.

Eine meiner Lieblings-Leseerinnerungen.

Nachtrag 2 zu meinem von @fraencisdaencis inspirierten Blurb:

Schon allein die Sepia-Gestaltung. Die Schrift hat die Farbe – und vielleicht auch der Buchschnitt. Das weiß ich nicht mehr genau. Aber damals war ich stolz so ein altes, wertvolles Buch lesen zu dürfen und anvertraut zu bekommen. Ich wusste zwar, dass es nicht RICHTIG alt war. Aber es sah so geheimnisvoll aus. Da wollte ich das einfach glauben. ?

Inspiriert von @fraencisdaencis wollte ich ein Bild der tollen Ausgabe posten, die ich als Kind gelesen habe. Allerdings nach dem Film. Den hab ich zuerst gesehen. Im ?. Ich glaub, in den Weihnachtsferien. ? Also ist Momo für mich immer mit dem Gesicht von Radost Bokel verknüpft. Allein der Name‼️? Als Kind war mir klar, mit so einem Namen kann man nur Schauspielerin werden.?

Aber: jene tolle "Momo"-Ausgabe steht im ?-Regal meines Vaters.?

fraencisdaencis Oh, schade, die Ausgabe hätte ich gerne gesehen. Und den Film kenne ich auch nicht... 3y
Buechersuechtling @fraencisdaencis Ich hab noch zwei weitere Blurbs hinterher geschickt. *schäm* ☺️ Den Film ? findest du zum Beispiel hier: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=iXp8D8azDUY – Aber verstehe ich dich richtig❓? Das ist deine erste Begegnung mit "Momo"❓Meiner Ansicht nach eine Bildungslücke. Aber du schließt sie ja scheinbar gerade. ? *InErinnerungenSchwelgt* 3y
fraencisdaencis Ich lese es noch einmal, habe es vor zehn Jahren circa gelesen ☺ Besitze aber jetzt endlich eine eigene Ausgabe. 3y
Buechersuechtling @fraencisdaencis Kann ich gut verstehen. Ehrlich gesagt überlege ich seit heute Morgen auch, es nochmal zu lesen. Sollte ich das vor Weihnachten ? doch nicht hinbekommen, werde ich aber auf jeden, jeden Fall den Film ? ansehen. – Hab vielen Dank dafür, dass du mir "Momo" ins Gedächtnis gerufen hast. ? 3y
fraencisdaencis Gerne 😊 3y
