There I began to connect with my essence and with what I really loved. And from there, all the answers came together. A year before I started writing this book, I understood why my life had come to this point. Why hadn't I managed to live my big dreams.

9) The secret of good digestion

We sit at the table, prick a piece of food with a fork, put it in our mouths, chew it, swallow it… And then what?

We eat at least three times a day throughout our lives, but we know almost nothing about what happens inside us when we eat a food. As a consequence, we often don't understand how our body reacts to what we have eaten. Why are there things that suit us and others that don't? What is the relationship between what we eat and the diseases we develop throughout life? What does the stomach tell us when it makes noise? Bad breath, migraines, bloating, allergies, obesity, and even depression can all be caused by poor digestion.

10) alone

And with this book, reader, we throw you a very important challenge: discover the pleasure of being with yourself. Are you ready to know what he wants to tell you Silvia Congost?

Desired, sought after, provoked, unnoticed, loneliness can take many forms, but in most cases it is a situation that scares us, generates rejection and we try to avoid it at all costs. In today's world and especially after a certain age, it seems that loneliness is understood as a failure: being single, divorced or separated is something that must be overcome at all costs. However, knowing how to be alone is actually a sign of maturity, of autonomy, of personal wealth.

Congost, one of the best known psychologists in our country, breaks in this book with preconceived ideas about not having a partner and invites us to lose fear of the monster of loneliness from her own experience. To remain in silence listening to our body, connecting with the beating of our heart.

Sofía is a middle-aged woman intensely dedicated to her professional life. After fainting in front of a large group of people when she was about to begin her speech at a public event, she must be admitted to hospital. The next day, they communicate terrible news to him. From that moment, Sofía begins a path of personal transformation and what at first is tragic news becomes a life lesson in which her whole world takes on a new meaning.

With the deep and emotional style to which Javier Iriondo has us accustomed, this novel full of sensitivity confronts us with ourselves, reveals fundamental affections of life and how our fears and expectations prevent us from enjoying the only thing we have: the present.


12) The biology of the present

And delving into this topic comes the book of Sergi Torres and David del Rosario so that we learn to activate the "presence mode" and experience the pleasure of living.

Because there are two ways to live. From the biology of survival, when we reject what happens to us and refuse to live certain experiences. Or from the biology of the present, when we welcome everything that life brings and we get closer to our true nature as human beings.

Can you imagine an existence far from suffering and fear, that welcomed with curiosity and openness all life situations that arose, even the most complicated? Sergi Torres and David del Rosario invite us to stop surviving and start living, showing us that honesty to observe our thoughts and our organism holds the keys to enjoying the pleasure of living free.


13) Life in four letters

Starting from an extraordinarily difficult time in the author's life, this book begins with a fascinating question: do we carry happiness written in our genes?

Carlos López-Otín, one of the most internationally relevant Spanish researchers, offers us a great popular science book to explain the secrets of the origin of life, the human genome and the tireless struggle of humanity to defeat disease and achieve happiness on earth .

With López-Otín we will discover that beyond the messages written in our genes there are other biological, dynamic and fascinating languages ​​that depend on our interaction with the environment and from which we are learning unsuspected lessons. Ready to surprise you?

And this book is one of the great reasons we were dying for September to come. Because it brings us a new book of Álex Rovira and Fernando Trías de Bes!

Because the secret is not to be free, but not to be a slave. A full life is only possible from vital freedom. In your bookstore from 09/15!


15) The great book of Lucia, my pediatrician

The most complete and updated guide on the health of your child from birth to adolescence. That is the book that we bring you from the hand of Lucia Galán.

The great book of Lucia, my pediatrician will accompany fathers and mothers on the journey of their lives. With a lot of information on the health and well-being of the baby up to his adolescence, this work will become a reference manual, informative and entertaining.

These and many more questions are analyzed here, with the unmistakable kind and hopeful tone of one of the best pediatric prescribers in Spain. A must for any parent seeking guidance.


16) It's easy to quit if you know how

And if we talk about purposes for the new course, you could not miss purpose number 1 on any list: to leave smoking behind. Because it is one of the most difficult things to achieve. No matter how many times we have tried, relapse is so easy …

Now we bring you the system recognized worldwide as "the most effective to quit smoking", from Allen Carr. Whoever follows the EASYWAY method will not only stop smoking immediately, but will find it easy and even enjoy the process. Because the method in this book works for everyone, even the heavy smoker.

It does not matter that the circumstances are somewhat different than usual, that you have obstacles ahead or that the time you have is short. We believe that with willpower every goal is achievable. And with our books to achieve your purposes, maybe a little more affordable.

Source of the new



He said Machado that of "Walker, there is no path, the path is made by walking". And the same thing happens to us as readers. That every book read, every story lived, every place (real or imagined) that we have visited through reading … our love for books has become a little bit bigger.

Because books are our refuge, no matter under what circumstances.

Statistics say that during the days of confinement weekly readers have grown by 7% —in data from the Federation of Editors Guilds of Spain— or that 82% of the confined population affirms that reading has helped them cope better with this complicated period. And although the figures are positive, they only confirm something we already knew: reading evades us, reading makes us live other lives. So we are in love with books. Because they take us to other worlds when we don't want to be in ours, because they allow us to see things from a completely new point of view.

And because, although we are in a context dominated by the audiovisual, with series and films constantly calling our senses … we will always keep a special corner (in our hearts and in our schedule) for literature. 💙📖

So in this post we want to share with you, readers, 10 phrases of famous writers that inspire us and that we trust that they will also tickle your greedy minds. Enjoy them and read, read and read! Now and always.


1) Jorge Luis Borges

«Of the various instruments invented by man, the most amazing is the book; all the others are extensions of his body … Only the book is an extension of the imagination and memory». Do you agree with Jorge Luis Borges?


2) Emily Dickinson

«To travel far, there is no better ship than a book».


3) John Steinbeck

"By the thickness of the dust on the books of a public library, the culture of a people can be measured."


4) William Nicholson

«We read to know that we are not alone».


5) Cervantes

«He who reads a lot and walks a lot, sees a lot and knows a lot», Used to say the noble writer Don Miguel de Cervantes.


6) Victor Hugo

«Learning to read is lighting a fire, each syllable that is spelled is a spark», Commented the author of The Miserables or Our Lady of Paris, the essential Victor Hugo.


7) Ray Bradbury

«You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. You just have to stop people from reading them».

No one would dare to rebut Ray Bradbury, especially after reading your Fahrenheit 451. 🙊🔥


8) Franz Kafka

«A book must be the ax that breaks the frozen sea within us».


9) Mario Vargas Llosa

«Learning to read is the most important thing that has happened to me. Almost 70 years later I clearly remember that magic of translating words into images». This affirmed a whole Nobel Prize for Literature, Mario Vargas Llosa.


10) Gustave Flaubert

«Do not read, as children do, for fun, or as the ambitious do, for the purpose of instruction. No, read to live».

Gustave Flaubert, one of the feathers with the greatest literary strength in the 19th century, was of this opinion about what a reader should look for in a work.


And with the author of Madame Bovary we come to the end of this post, dear readers. We hope that these phrases stimulate you and make you want to devour a new book, or to discover a new author, to take a notebook and pen for yourself and try the craft of writing in first person … And if you lack a little more inspiration, do not hesitate to consult this list of essentials to spend a luxurious (literary) summer.

But Ann's luck will turn around when that same night she discovers that one of the soldiers is Eiden, a childhood acquaintance who will help her escape.

Gryphoon

Although Noah and his friends have finally been able to flee from the hunters, this mishap has forced them to stray from the path.

Shion

If you're a book lover like us — and you're reading this blog for a reason, right? Seguro— surely you know that there has never been a more faithful friend or more secure shelter than a book.

And in these days of uncertainty and not making plans because we do not know if we can carry them out … we have learned to value little things more, to value moments, to enjoy the company of those people who we take for granted will be there. Because we have learned that this is not reality.

If you want to express to your family how special they are to you, our proposal is clear: give books away. 📖✨

Because when we decide to give a book away we are not only giving a conglomerate of pages, letters and words. We are sharing with someone a worldview of the world, interpreted by literary characters that provide our brain with thousands of possibilities. But they can say a lot about us and our most intimate way of thinking. And sharing that connection is magical.

And what is the best complement for a book? Well, a special dedication, of course.

Some of the most sincere and most powerful words have been written in dedications of books, because it is something intimate, protected by the covers of the book and by the possibility that the person never reads those sentences … time to choose the right words to tell that person why we have loved that bit of history of Literature and not another, why for him and why now … Those words can accompany a person to the depths of his heart for longer than we think.

So in this post we introduce you 10 different styles of dedications depending on who is going to receive it, the type of dedication or the occasion. So you can convey everything you feel and want to say and you don't have to face the panic of the blank page. 😜


one. Dedication for lovers

No chocolates or anything. Conquering the stomach is easy, but getting to the intellect of the person you want to fall in love with or with whom you are in love is only a challenge for the most daring.

This is a very personal type of dedication and we would advise you to set aside recurring images and phrases of the type Without you I am nothing de Amaral … to give it an original and much more personal touch (which is what counts). If you give a book to someone you love, the book has a connection to both of you. Use it. For example: "Maybe the Odyssey that I lived when I missed the train that had to take me to our first date was not so long, but of course, it was just as hard. ”


2. Author's dedication

If a book is itself a fantastic gift, imagine what an illusion to receive it with the dedication made by the author himself! If you have the possibility of obtaining it, it is, without a doubt, the perfect gift.

You can try catching a writer's coveted lyrics at Book Fairs or Presentations. And we are sure that it will make you crush it melts. Let it not be said that you have not tried!


3. Dedication for occasional readers

It may be that your gift is addressed to someone who lives the passion for reading with a more leisurely intensity. In that case, the title or author of what you give them will tell you little or nothing about the reason for your selection. Here the best option can be to emphasize the interests that the person may have and that are in the book, so that they understand the reason for the gift. Something like "I know your passion for mysteries and how you love solving them, that's why I give you this crime novel… ”.


4. Dedication for the advanced reader

For those with whom you share a passion for literature. Here it may be interesting to focus our dedication on the reason for the gift rather than its justification. For example: "I hope this novel expands or destroys the horizons of your own world of Science fiction… ” or "Here goes the philosophical essay on aporophobia that was overlooked. I hope it will enrich you… ”.

In this case we can be as specific or convoluted (see the second dedication) as we want because, after all, we already know that this person has very specific interests and, with our gift, we are only fanning that bonfire that we already know that exists. And believe us, it is a very good thing that we have that level of knowledge of the other person. It could bring great things to us together.


5. Dedication in story

Maybe you also like to write. In that case, if you have a clear message and an interesting idea, you can dare with a dedication in which you explain a mini story that synthesizes everything you want to communicate.

Let's say, for example, you give a meditation book to a friend so they can learn to relax. Well, nothing better than creating a mini story where your friend is the protagonist and where you narrate a scene in which he enjoys complete stillness and inner peace. You will feel identified and relax before even reading it!


6. Poetic dedication

Similar to the story dedication, a poetic dedication can capture powerful images and metaphors to make the quote a literary "product" itself. In this case, unless you dare with your own poetry, you can search for a poem that has a close relationship with the theme or content of the book. For example, if we talk about literature, we could quote the great Pablo Neruda in a poem like this:

"So when the teeth of the literature   they tried to bite my honest heels, I passed, without knowing, singing with the wind towards the rainy warehouses of my childhood (...) "

Although if you are a real brave we encourage you to let your imagination run wild and write your own verses. They probably don't look like Neruda's but you can talk about more personal things, which have more meaning for both of you, and above all it will be much more valuable that you have put the personal effort to create something for that special person. You know what they say about "worth a try"? Well in this case, it's very worth it.


7. Dedication to launch hints

Exactly. How well are those books that serve as an excuse to throw hints or advice to friends or family.

And if you accompany it with a dedication that has just underlined the message (more than anything in case it has not been made clear), then better than better. Let's say someone you know doesn't cook very well. You could dedicate the following:I trust this book so you can carry out the most important mission of your life: not starve ourselves (that or let me cook). ”

Do not miss a sense of humor in this type of dedication. 😉


8. Direct dedication to the heart: memory

Ok, yes, we already know that this title may sound somewhat ambiguous and that with all the previous dedications we also wanted to win the heart of that special person. OKAY. But we will explain what is special about this type of dedication. It is no longer just about the dedication, but about the gift itself.

We will tell you with an example. Do you know those muffins you used to eat when they were little that they sold in the oven under your house and that on Sunday mornings your father would look for you to have breakfast together? And the great sensations that still come over the years as long as you accidentally smell a batch of freshly made cupcakes?

Well the same but with the books. If that person has ever told you that a book marked his childhood or that he read something that touched his heart at a certain point in his life … bringing that little piece of his life and his memory to the present is a gift in capital letters, which will make him See that you listen to what he tells you, that you look at the details, that you have bothered to look for that book so old that they do not even edit it anymore and that you have also put a dedication that has just made clear how special that person is for you.

For example: “So that when you reread the stories of this bunny, you would be the baby who jumped from puddle to puddle without caring what he should or shouldn't do. I would love to jump in puddles with you one day;) ”.


9. Short dedication

They say the good if short … And you know how the saying ends. If you don't have a clear idea about what to say or, on the contrary, you want to say too much, maybe cutting for the sane is the best option.

A dedication of a phrase is more than enough if your words encapsulate a good message. It is not easy, but the result is worth it.

An example could be: "May each page resist you in existence ” or "May this book be tender bread to bite loneliness. " And depending on the trust we have with that person, we can always add a more fun touch: "That this book is tender bread to bite loneliness … And if it is not, I let myself bite a little bit. Whatever it takes to bring out that smile. ”


10. A great dedication for a small reader

How important are the first contacts with literature and what a wonderful power they have when creating new readers.

So if you are going to give a book to a child who has just started in the literary universe, we recommend that you make a dedication that motivates him to continue reading and that he remembers fondly after a few years.

In these cases, something brief and special may be the best way to dedicate: “May this book be the first of the many lives and adventures that await you in the world of literature. ” Once that little reader grows up and remembers that his love for literature began with a gift that you gave him, you will know that it will have been worth any time you have invested in thinking of the best dedication for him.

And since we also love our readers very much, don't think you're going to leave this post without our dedication to you:

"Between rose and rose, your majesty choose"

Francisco de Quevedo

Why this one? Because it belongs to one of the Castilian classics and we believe that it reflects very well our purpose when it comes to talking about books, writing about books, breathing books. ♥

There are a thousand options out there for each of us. We just have to choose. And we are very lucky to have centuries of great literature. So we believe in love to first page.

For that reason and because the previous quote is not without humor, hehe. They say that Quevedo told the queen when he wanted to win a bet with his friends and should insult nothing more and nothing less than his royal persona. So he dedicated those words to him: "Between pink and pink, his majesty is-LAME. And is that the classics, the great stories that sometimes intimidate us a little … they are still real and human stories, with humor, stories that are waiting to be discovered by the reader of any time.

# ReadYourSummer 💕

Do you smell it It is freedom floating in the air, because summer is already here. 😍

It is likely that this summer will be different from the others but that does not take away the illusion of knowing that we have toooodo the time in the world to do what we like the most, that for a week we will live without alarms and without meetings, that we do not have to carry children to nowhere more than where we have planned to go with the family and that, ultimately, the time is ours.

And what do we do when we have time? Read! That is why we bring you this list of authors and works that you will not want to miss, because they are those readings that leave their mark. Ready to discover a universe of readings that will sweeten your summer? 🥳


one) Extraordinary thingsby Brays Efe

This is the story of a boy who brought together for his mother all the good things in the world. Because … how does a child react when he finds out that his mother has tried to kill himself? He makes a list of the extraordinary things worth living for: ice cream, water wars, letting you stay on TV when it's time to go to sleep, the yellow color, the things with stripes, the roller coasters, the people who stumble.

This Duncan Macmillan text filled with innocence and tenderness has traveled the world for years, relieving anyone who has ever had a losing streak at some point in their life.

Brays Efe He has been in the role of the protagonist for months and now he shares with us his experience to make us appreciate much more those little things that do not seem to matter … but are the really important ones. A book delight that cannot be missed in your plans for these hot days.


two) Felix. A man on earthby Odile Rodríguez de la Fuente

This is a perfect book for those who take advantage of the summer to escape nature and get in touch with a greener (and less gray) life. Because if there is a figure that has contributed to creating generations much more aware of the importance of the environment and its preservation, that is the Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente.

In this book we discover an illustrated compendium of man's thinking that sparked the environmental awareness of an entire country. Ten chapters divided by thematic areas with texts by Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente and the transcription of his main radio and television interventions. The selection of the texts and the introduction to each chapter are the responsibility of Odile Rodríguez de la Fuente, biologist, daughter of Felix and main disseminator of her legacy. A final chapter with the testimony of personalities from all areas that will gloss his figure: Andreu Buenafuente, Rosa Montero, Jesús Calleja, Juan Luis Arsuaga.

If you want to delve into one of the most influential, loved and respected characters in Spain, this is the definitive work that reflects his legacy as a humanist, naturalist, ecologist and communicator.


3) The good thing about having a bad dayby Anabel González

We ask you a question: if it is clear that what we want is to be happy, why do we put so many obstacles to achieve it?

Few sayings have been more damaging than the one that says that "in bad weather you have to put a good face on it." In bad weather you have to put tears or sadness. And to the good, smiles and joy. Because knowing how to manage our emotions is not hiding or suppressing them, it is recognizing and managing them with meaning.

After many years of consultation, the doctor Anabel González It provides us with this little guide to emotional survival that will help us better manage our emotions and learn to live with bad times.
Because the key to feeling comfortable with ourselves and with our life is precisely knowing how to cope with bad days.


4) The sky of your daysby Greta Alonso

And we continue this list of essentials with a novel that will make us stay up late because we will be unable to fulfill that "just one more chapter". What is it about?

A lock of hair and nine words: «This was her. This one, his hair. I, his murderer ». The appearance of a lock of hair next to a disturbing anonymous causes the reopening of the "Alicia case", the young woman murdered fifteen years ago in a mountain in Cantabria; the fact could confirm a terrible suspicion: what if the author of the crime was not the man imprisoned for it more than a decade ago?

The efficient and methodical Inspector Herreros will be forced to lead the investigation between an oppressive Bilbao and a frenzied Madrid as we follow in the first person steps of Inspector Brul, his boss and mentor, the man who maintained a relationship with the victim months before the event. .

Two overwhelming characters, a strong physical attraction, a crude web of power, lies and violence. Do we have to say more for you to get caught by the pen of Greta Alonso? 😜


5) First lineby Gabriel Heras

If there is a reason why this summer will be different, it is summarized in five letters and two figures: Covid-19. And although we are all aware of news and cases, there is a reality that we do not know. What health professionals have experienced, that is, how the worst global pandemic in recent years is experienced from within.

In pages full of tension and fear, but also of hope and companionship, the intensive care doctor Gabriel Heras offers an example of the ability of health workers to overcome the unpredictability and lack of humility of those responsible for managing the worst health crisis in the history of Spain. At the same time, his story highlights the shortcomings of a system that needs profound changes to adapt to the realities of the 21st century and guarantee the well-being of citizens. "With this crisis we have discovered that Spain does not have the best healthcare system in the world, but it does have the best professionals."

A great book to see things from another point of view and reflect.


6) The older cousinby Laura Gost

And this is a summer book par excellence: because many of us have had our first contact with the affective and romantic world when the sun was brightest, and Laura Gost It brings us a story that will connect with all of us.

The older cousin It talks about the awakening of a girl as a woman with the clarity and narrative intelligence of a Goya-winning screenwriter. That is why we like this work so much.

Rosa is only twelve years old when her older cousin is orphaned and is forced to share a room with her. After the hasty move, the protagonist soon finds that her cousin represents everything she cannot tolerate: Tina is an irresponsible, ungrateful and problematic girl.

But, little by little, Rosa will begin to realize that behind the things that repel her from Tina hides something that she longs for herself: to be an extroverted, overwhelming and sexy young woman capable of altering the daily life of the Mediterranean town in which they live. It will be precisely these differences that will determine the adolescence of both, that time when ingenuity and maturity mix so crudely. A clash of mentalities that will be fully unleashed with the arrival of the three members of the Montsó family in the neighborhood.

Can a love triangle shake the relationship of the two cousins ​​with the world, femininity and themselves?


7) Aloneby Silvia Congost

And this is the other side of the coin of the topic that we were just talking about: do we need to be in a couple to feel good?

Silvia Congost teaches us that not having a partner does not mean being alone. Learning to be alone can be the greatest adventure of your life and a fascinating journey into yourself that will connect you with the world and with yourself.

Desired, sought, provoked, unnoticed, loneliness can take many forms, but in most cases it is a situation that scares us, generates rejection and we try to avoid at all costs. In today's world and especially from a certain age, it seems that loneliness is understood as a failure: being single, divorced or separated is something that must be overcome at all costs. However, knowing how to be alone is really a sign of maturity, autonomy, and personal wealth. This book will help us conquer that important summit and become our best ally.


8) The power to trust youby Curro Cañete

Maybe the name of Curro Cañete but surely you've 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. In this way it is essential that we trust ourselves and that, dear readers, is a power that can only be achieved through practice. 😉

With energy and a desire to share what he himself has learned, Curro teaches us to conquer our fears and overcome obstacles to be happier than ever. Also in his previous book A new happiness we will be able to read his own story of liberation and search, how he got rid of his mental blocks and limits. Inspiring, isn't it?


9) How to make good things happen to youby Marian Rojas

And we close this post recommending the Dr. Rojas, which proposes us to enjoy the present, overcome the past and look forward to the future. Sounds promising but you don't know where to start? Don't worry because Marian Rojas is going to guide us step by step.
