Books are best friends to me. They each speak their language and convey their own message. Whereas plays and films, while being considered part of what we call cultural events, provide a certain perspective on things and leash our imagination in channeling it into one or multiple directions.

You guessed right: my preference goes to books, in audio or readable format and I have to admit paper books provide me with an unmatched journey of the olfactory and touching senses...

I will be sharing under the different subcategories here my numerous experiences listening to and reading books, watching movies and attending plays / cultural events.
