Bookworms and Heroes
As I was a little kid, I was a real bookworm. I could read for hours. I disappeared into books and let my book heroes come to life in my fantasy.
That time my favorite books were Trixie Belden, Momo, The Never Ending Story, Grimms’ Fairy Tales, and Rolltreppe abwärts (available only in German).
In addition to those, I devoured everything that my school library had to offer.
With the start of my working life a few years later, my reading, unfortunately, came to a near halt. And, if I did find time to read, I often did it with a guilty conscious.
During our world trip, I rediscovered my love of reading. I started reading without having a bad conscious. And I enjoyed it. And now, with the difficult times of self-isolation due to the COVID-19 crisis, I even have more time to read.
I am a bookworm again and am so excited to meet new heroes!
