Day 23 – A book you wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t


Sophie's WorldSophie’s World by Jostein Gaardner. This one was easy. It is a book I’ve wanted to read since I was a teenager. I was 11 when it came out in Swedish and I think my desire to read it stems from the hype around it then. Philosophy really interests me, and that interest has grown over the years, yet I still never get around to reading the book. One day I will though.

The idea of presenting the philosophical thoughts to a young girl appeals to my need to get things in story form. I also like that a girl is the main character.

I got this for my 14th bday from a Norwegian friend: I loved it at the time! :) I need to reread it to see if it stands up as an adult.

I loved The Solitaire Mystery by Jostein Gaarder.

This is one I've really wanted to read, too! The same things that intrigue you about it intrigue me as well.
