Grace is running the blog culturallife on wordpress. She started a series of articles about books you are currently reading. Everyone is asked to participate which means to write short reading experiences and linking it to her blog’s Saturday Shelfie section. I will do so with Johann Wolfgang Goethes „Gespräche mit Eckermann“ (Conversations with Eckermann) a fascinating book about german culture and heritage. I’m still in the process of reading. My favourite quote at the moment is „Je näher sie sich gewissen philosophischen Schulen hingeben, desto schlechter schreiben sie.“ If you identify with a certain philosophical system you destroy your individual voice.
