Pickpick

A young woman moves from Germany to the county of Surrey, in England, known for its woods, to instruct a little girl who lost her mother a few months earlier. Strange characters, mysterious countryside and ghosts are the watchwords of this thriller!

La Sicilia, il suo cuore | Leonardo Sciascia, Disegni Emilio Greco
post image

From "Fables of the dictatorship"
"The mice, the moles and the martens and all the animals that gnawed on the edge of the farm, planned a revolutionary occupation of the food storage of the henhouse.The plan was excellent but it was the mole who worried about the date "in winter" he said "there are many favorable things in winter".Here became eloquent and precise and was acclaimed.The others didn't think that in winter, the moles, deeply sleep".

Paula | Isabel Allende
post image

This book has been a long time on the bookshelf, I decided to read it only a few months ago. It's the autobiography of the chilean writer Isabel Allende, nephew of Salvador Allende, the chilean president killed in the coup d'etat of 1973. Her life has been full of travels, joy, love, and of great pain due to the illness that has affected her daughter Paula. This book, which made me think a lot, speaks precisely of this fact.

Thank you all for the warm welcome!!🤗
This is a poetry book by Pablo Neruda, that I have given to my dear friend Veronica. In addition to the passion for books, we have in common that of creating handmade jewelry with stones. I love the idea that someone, anywhere in the world, can wear a unique product made by us. Do you have other passions in addition to reading?

Severnmeadows Something more ephemeral than beautiful hand made jewellery: playing the piano 😊🎶 3y
alessbooks @Severnmeadows I played the piano as a child! Truly a beautiful instrument. My brother plays guitar and violin🤗 3y
nanuska_153 Pablo Neruda's poems are some of the most romantic and sexual things I've ever read 3y

Eleven Minutes | Paulo Coelho
post image

Good afternoon! ! I really like to share my passion for books with who, like me, can not stay without reading! I wanted to start posting with a book by Paulo Coelho "Eleven Minutes".
I have four books by this author, including the well known "The Alchemist". I must say that both were very pleasant readings, but "Eleven Minutes" remains my favorite. Have you read any Coelho book? Do you like his books?
