PUT A BOOK IN YOUR LIFE
Today we had to celebrate the Sant Jordi that we could not do last April 23. However, the resurgence of this damned virus has prevented us from doing so. Despite everything, the publishers, the authors, and the other agents of the publishing sector continue to support reading and we will not let this silent virus rob us of the important things in life. I refuse to give up, but for the time being we must be careful and follow the recommendations. I will continue to support culture and sport, because without these two things, my life, and that of many, would not be life. For this reason, today I present to you my selection of those non-fiction books that have helped me during my confinement.
LA LIBERTAD INTERIOR (“Inner Freedom”), by Gaspar Hernàndez, has been an essential book for me at this time. If we do not learn, we will never be free. RABIETAS (“Tantrums”), by Míriam Tirado, is an important title to fight, with love, those tantrums of the youngest that are so difficult to assume. CUENTOS PARA NIÑAS Y NIÑOS FELICES (“Stories for Happy Children”), by Àlex Rovira and Francesc Miralles, is a wonderful book to read as a family and learn that happiness depends on oneself. NOS ROBARON LA JUVENTUD (“They Stole Our Youth”), by Víctor Amela, is a work that explains in its own voice what the “Quinta de Biberón” was. TE QUIERO, ¿Y AHORA QUÉ? (“I Love You, Now What?”), by Nika Vázquez, is a revealing book that will help us to enjoy our relationships more. TODO SALDRÁ BIEN (“Everything Will Be Fine”), by Francesc Miralles, presents us with different views on how to deal with this pandemic and what we should do to combat what it has caused. To finish UNA LUZ DENTRO DE TI (“A Light Inside You”), by Andrés Martín Asuero, is a book that tells us in a novelized way, the benefits of a spiritual retreat.
All the books have a double reading, what it is and what it brings us. For me, each one of the titles that I have mentioned have been points of support to be able to fight against specific moments of my life. Books help the soul, so today, more than ever, let’s choose one to bring something to our daily lives, because reading is life.
