January > December
Factfulness - Hans and Ola Rossling, Anna Rosling Ronnuld
  • stress-reducing > how to actually see the bright sidewithout going all spiritually crazy Paulo Coelho alike! Like it,

Možnosti milostného románu - Jan Němec
  • After reading Dějiny světla, I was really looking forward to his another book. As the name suggests, it is a contemplate of how a book about love could look like following the narrative of postmodernity. I didn't find the main story as attractive, as the way, how the book is written. Yet, to people who does not know Jan Němec, I would instead suggest them to start with Dějiny světla. 7/10
