Azi am ascultat o poveste pentru copii. Mi-a trimis-o un prieten bun, Flavius. Parca as fi fost iar copil la scoala sau gradinita, ascultand o poveste pe o placa de vinilin sau placa de pick-up, cum mai este cunoscuta. O poveste veche, cu o interpretare minunata si cu un talc asa cum numai povestile stiu sa aiba, pentru cine are minte sa le priceapa.

Iti recomand cu tot dragul sa o asculti. Redescopera copilul din tine, intelepciunea straveche si de bun simt si transmite-o mai departe tuturor copiilor si oamenilor. Nu e niciodata tarziu sa asculti povesti, fie ele mai vechi sau mai noi, pentru ca povestile nu au fost niciodata doar pentru copii ci de ascultat impreuna cu copiii.

Auditie placuta!

About books

When I think about books, I smile. I read A LOT when I was little and I haven’t stopped yet. I’ve always read a book. Now I am reading The Lord of the Rings and I’ve almost finished the second book. It is amazing. I realize now, while I am reading it, how close the film is to the book, but I think (and this is not only my opinion) that books are always better than the films that are made after them. I would always suggest the book first, rather than the film.

I’ve gathered, for  a long time now, a list of books that were either suggested to me by my friends and acquaintances or I found them in my own or others bookcases or public libraries. Most of them I read but still remain a lot that are to be read in the future. Because there are so many, I put them on a list, my own, so that I would know what to read next. And thought of sharing this list with you. There are books for different ages and all give me pleasure. I recommend them dearly and you are free to choose from here or not. I just think that they are worth reading and might help you in some way or another. If you have a favourite book, feel free to tell me. I will always be editing this post. 🙂

What book do you read?

Cartea de la capatai

Azi voi scrie despre carti. Nu despre carti de gatit sau carti din bibliografia de examene. Am trecut si inca mai trec prin asemenea bibliografii dar cateodata mi-e greu sa le citesc pentru ca nu e la fel ca atunci cand iau o carte care nu are nici o legatura cu ce e obligatoriu si o citesc de placere. Stii despre ce vorbesc. Vorbesc despre cartea de la capatai. Capataiul patului. Cartea pe care nu o poti lasa din mana pana nu o termini si o citesti zilnic, seara, inainte de culcare, cartea pe care o iei in autobuz sau metrou, in parc, oriunde. Despre ea si despre citit.

E bine sa citesti. Citeste orice, chiar si un ziar, dar citeste. Placerea de a citi fie o ai innascuta, fie o construiesti, ca atatea alte lucruri in viata.  Invata sa citesti. Pentru tine si pentru mine, incep acum o lista de carti, pe care ti le recomand din tot sufletul. Nu sunt toate citite, dar urmeaza. Pe unele dintre ele le-am descoperit singura, fie in biblioteca personala, fie in alte biblioteci, fie citind despre ele pe internet, ziare, alte carti, etc. dar cele mai multe sunt carti pe care mi le-au recomandat prietenii si cunoscutii si unde am retinut, am pus numele celor care mi-au si recomandat cartea respectiva. Si am invatat multe citind astfel. Spune-mi si tu o carte interesanta. Lista ramane deschisa si probabil ca acest post va fi unul dintre cele mai editate posturi de pe blog pentru ca intotdeauna voi reveni cu noi titluri.

Unele titluri sunt pentru o anumita varsta si daca doresti, citeste-le la timpul lor. Eu le-am citit, si atat de mult mi-au placut incat raman vesnic in lista mea.
