    Live!

    One life in one body?... with so many ways to live?

    Luckily we can open a book and step into the shoes of someone else for a while. Whether it’s a rock star, politician, scientist, writer, world-traveler or young wizard, there are thousands of books waiting to inspire.

     

     

    On July 15, Warner Bros. is releasing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, which brings the film version of the Hogwarts franchise to its epic finale.

    A decade or so ago, who could have predicted that one magical series could get kids around the world to put down their video games, shut off the TV and devour 800-page books? Thanks to the J. K. Rowling series, books became cool again, with the birth of the midnight release party and kids and adults dressing like fictional characters.

    If you are not already attuned to upcoming Harry Potter mania, get into the mood! Check our catalogue for J. K Rowling’s books for your unique Harry Potter experience!

    Movies based on books are somebody else’s interpretation of the text, which we might like or not. Books are here to let you to create your own imaginary world.

    Here are some other inspirations:

    Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother

    Amy Chua

     

    Not Dead & not for Sale : the earthling papers (a memoir)

    Scott Weiland
