I guess, you can learn a lot of me from my book “tastes”.
Nevertheless it is hard for me to list my favourite books! However, I believe you can get to know a person better if you discover what he/she likes reading. Books present yourself, better than anyone.
Here below you can find some books that have left a mark in my life (follow link to find out details on Amazon.com):
