We know that these days go slower than usual. It seems that every day has more hours … But precisely for this reason some of us are taking the opportunity to recover those hobbies that we had kept in a drawer due to lack of time.
There are those who have dusted off the camera, there are those who have re-grasped the paint brushes and, of course, we read. We want you to join us and discover some authors and works that will fascinate you!
Do you have paper and pencil at hand? Or the mobile notes app, same. Then write down these names … because we are sure that you will want to run to the bookstore to look for his works as soon as the days of confinement allow us.
one) The power to trust you, Curro Cañete
Your name may not ring a bell, but you have surely heard of his book The power to trust you.
He is one of the figures of the moment, a coach who is helping to change lives. Cañete affirms that "the greatest act of generosity that you can do for yourself and for those around you is to be happy". And that happiness is not a destination, but a path that we must walk step by step.
On this path, it is essential that we trust ourselves, a power that can only be achieved through practice. And these days we have more than a challenge in front of us.
And if you want more, don't miss his previous book A new happiness: He tells us his personal story of liberation and search, how he got rid of his blocks and mental limits. Inspiring, isn't it? 😉

5) Night and ocean, Raquel Taranilla
This title is the 2020 Short Library Award and we are sure that it will be a discovery for many readers. In this play Raquel Taranilla It opens the door to the universe of Bea Silva, a woman who one day stumbles upon a newspaper story that leaves her stunned: someone has stolen the embalmed skull of the legendary silent film director F. W. Murnau.
The most amazing? That Bea is sure to know the culprit: a half-idle filmmaker named Quirós who one day came to his huge dilapidated house and made Bea's gaze even more lucid, more hyperactive, more disenchanted and deranged.
About to turn thirty-two, Beatriz is a woman who avoids socializing, a jaded and cultured university professor until the pathological thing. And with something to tell: “If the Berlin police ever knocked on my door, they would gladly hand over a box that he left me and that contains documents that, at least at first glance, are related to the case.”
6) The biology of the present, Sergi Torres and David del Rosario
And we close the list with an invitation to stop surviving and start living. Its authors bring us a guide, as they say, to «learn to activate the presence mode» and experience the pleasure of living ».

In The biology of the present towers and rosary beads They explain to us in a pleasant way how we can welcome any situation, however complicated it may be, and come out of it gracefully. How honesty to observe our thoughts and our body holds the keys to enjoy the pleasure of living free.
