What are the little moments in life you’re grateful for? For me it’s when the sun is shining on my bare skin and I have the time to read. Not just a twenty minutes break, but an entire day off and nothing to do but read. I realized this when I had just graduated a few years ago and lived with a friend in an apartment in Amsterdam. I didn’t have much obligations yet and woke up every day of Summer making breakfast and eating that on the balcony, while devouring books. A couple of weeks ago I was in Tenerife and my best moments there, were the moments I got to sit near the ocean (that sound in the background is just so calming), feel the sun on my skin and read a book.
When traveling, you can’t bring a lot of books. So I could only bring one book with me to Tenerife (I usually travel light with only hand luggage). But since I love traveling, I needed a solution to bring more books. On the internet I found the brand new PocketBook Touch HD 2. That’s an E-reader with 8 GB internal storage (enough for whole lot of books!). What I also love about the E-reader concept is that it saves a lot of trees by not needing any paper to print books on. The best thing about the Touch HD 2?
The technology used in this PocketBook, called SmartLight-technology, makes it adjust to human biorhythm. How? In the
default preset automatic mode adjusts the light color at the time of the day, so that it’s in harmony with the human biorhythm. At night the blue light becomes soft and warm and during the day the light is stronger and more bright. That way, you can still read before bed time without having to worry about disturbing your biorhythm. At night, there’s just no blue light!
My top-5 favorite books at the moment to read on the PocketBook Touch HD 2
- The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho
My all-time favorite book. This book changed the way I look at love. It’s really a magical story that has the power to change your thinking patterns.
- Pedram Shojai – The Urban Monk
This book, written by a former Taoist monk, lets you apply Eastern wisdom and medicine in your busy Western life. It’s filled with very useful tips and tricks. For everyone that feels their lives can use some extra calmness and stilness.
- Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – Robert M Pirsig
This story really made me forget about reality. It’s so beautifully written and filled with so many wise messages. The thesis of the writer is that to truly experience quality one must both embrace and apply it as best fits the requirements of the situation. Definitely an interesting read.
- Jan Geurtz – Addicted to love
According to this Dutch writer, we’re all addicted to love. He claims our ego fools us because we seek love and happiness outside of ourselves and how that constantly bring us into addictive patterns of love. Eye opening.
- Louise Hay – You can heal your life
Her key message is: “If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.” She cured herself after being diagnosed with cancer and shares her tips – that mostly concern the way we think about ourselves and the destructive patterns we have.
