Some truly great bits of literature there! I was surprised by the anomaly of Dan Brown in your list, mostly because you probably couldnít give those two away.

Thank you Tobias! Dan Brown is not my favorite and I just read it during a time where other material wasn't available. I much prefer Philip Roth or even Michael Crichton, as his research that goes into each book is just out of this world. You could read Airframe (not listed) for instance, and you'll come out with knowing so much more about airplanes. The classics are also nice like "A farewell to arms".

If your Dan Browns are not illustrated, lemme tell you what you've been missing boz a picture speaks a thousand words. I enjoyed his books so much more, I was grinning like an idiot and had to re-read it again for pure joy.

For some reason, I just can't get into him. To me he seems like Danielle Steel, overhyped.

Fantastic. If I get enough orders from one particular area, I might even be able to drop them off.

Yep I read Christonsí Airframe. Philip Roth is a literary great. I would buy some from you, but I donít get the time to read at all at the moment sadly, and when I do, Iím too exhausted and fall asleep after a few sentences.

You could subscribe to the "LiB's Book Express Plus" program and I would phone you, let's say on the way to work and read you a passage or so. I've got the same deal with Castro. He says I have a smooth and calming voice, it helps him cope with these uncertain times.

Well, let's hypothetically assume that Swisscom, for whatever reason seizes to function properly. I'm not saying that specific, unrealistic scenario will ever take place. I'm just saying, that in the unlikely eventuality, that you can't enjoy the comfort of the internet; you will most likely think back, full of regrets while clasping a 2 week old copy of 20minutes you picked up during pre-corona times and a little voice in your head will say "I should have gotten on the "LiB Book Express". I'm just saying, in the unlikely eventuality.
