my favourite books


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

  1. I agree with your list… except for the ones that are not in English. I can do fairly and almost fine with books in Spanish. I’ve been teaching in a bilingual (dual language-English and Spanish) school for seven years. That helped a bit! My all-time favorite book is Among Schoolchildren by Tracy Kidder. The author spent one year with a teacher in a very impoverished school located in Massachusetts. Truly amazing insight and very real! Ignore the not underlined title! My phone does not care for the art of underlining! I am on my phone writing when I should be in the grocery store!
