Coffee, Tea & Chat (in English) - Top books 2018
This is going to be a little complicated. It depends on how much time do you can find for you and reading, but it is really hard to read, when you have little kids. Every year, there is huge amount books published around the world – around 2,2 Millions. I found a very interesting List from UNESCO which put together information from 123 Countries.

Kaffee & Tee, Klatsch und Tratsch (in Deutsch) - Top Bücher 2018
Das hier wird schwer. Dem nach wieviel Zeit man sich zum Lesen finden kann, kennt man die Bücher vielleicht, aber es ist sehr schwer mit Kindern zu lesen, wenn es so viele Bücher jeder Jahr auf den Markt kommen. Im Jahr ist es ungefähr 2,2 Millionen Bücher in der Welt.
Coffee, Tea & Chat (in English) - Books you should read before...
…no matter what, question is, what else could you read, what is really the top literature from which you could learn something, have fun, be a bookworm because it is so good to read. If you write in Google "Top Books ...” you will find about 3.5 billion results. Everyone has their own list ... But what are the books that are really worth reading? It is not a competition, you read mainly for yourself, right? Nevertheless, one likes to find inspiration. I went through a few of the top lists and here are the books that I have found again and again...

Kaffee & Tee, Klatsch und Tratsch (in Deutsch) - Lesen macht dich besser
Lesen - für jemanden ist es die schönste Freizeitbeschäftigung der Welt. Sie entfliehen dem tristen Alltag und reisen in die Welt der Fantasie. Für manche ist es leere Auszeit ohne was dazu. Viele Leute wiisen garnicht, wann sie das letzte Mal ein Buch in der Hand hatten. Manche lesen überall. Es ist eine Aktivität die man ausübt ohne zu wissen im täglichen Leben bein Autofahren (Strassezeichen lesen), Fehrsehen schausen (Titel zum Nachrichten, Werbung, Übersetzung...) oder sogar in der Kücher (Rezepte, Foodblogs, ...). Beim Buch lesen geht es um ein bischen mehr. Eine langzeitliche Leseaktivität bring uns sogar sehr viel mehr.
Coffee, Tea & Chat (in English) - Reading books makes you better
Reading - for someone it is the most beautiful free time in the world. They escape the dreary everyday life and travel into the world of fantasy. For some it is empty timeout without something extra. Many people do not even know when they last had a book in their hands. Some read everywhere. It is an activity that you practice without knowing in everyday life, driving a car (reading road signs), watching TV (news, advertising, translations ...) or even in the kitchen (recipes, food blogs, ...). Reading the book is about a bit more than just reading. A long-term reading activity will bring us much more.
Dobrovoľníctvo ako aktivita s neopísateľnou pridanou hodnotou
Od nášho rozhovoru s Ninou Stueven z Bratislavského dobrovoľníckeho centra (BDC) už prešiel nejaký ten čas. Naše deti odrástli, náš program sa posunul, my sme sa naučili opäť nové veci. Mnoho z toho, čo sme v rozhovoroch spomenuli sme už zabudli, no to dôležité, zachytené a zdokumentované je jednoznačne to, s čím sa stále stotožňujeme.
Program na mesiac marec
Ráno nás zobudí zubaté slniečko, ktoré si po celý deň dodáva odvahy a popoludní už dokáže naozaj zahriať. Prechádzky vonku sú stále príjemnejšie, pobyt na ihrisku začína byť opäť stretnutím džavotavých detí a nielen osamelá patnásťminútovka. Mnoho z nás pociťuje slnečné lúče na tvári ako terapiu, teplo plynúce cez bundu je ako teplý kúpeľ, skrátka, jar aj my sa znovu zobúdzame. My sme si z technických príčin dali prestávku neplánovane aj tento týždeň, takže sa na nás tešte až od toho budúceho, pozorne sledujte webstránku a Facebook, kde Vám určite prinesieme najčerstvejšie informácie. Momentálne je návšteva herne, aktivít i krúžkov pozastavená a veríme, že už v pondelok Vám dáme možnosť nás opäť navštíviť.
Coffee, Tea & Chat (in English) - 10 things nobody told me about parenting
Plenty of people will give you unsolicited parenting advice (I didn´t ask whether my baby should be wearing a hat, thank you), but rarely will they tell you what you really need to know. Starting with the changes in pregnancy, you’re changing to a whole new person called mom. Yes, there will be a father, too, probably, but the change hardly hit them as much as it does the women. Beginning with the figure, state of mind, sleep quality, stress level, health. And then, the baby is born. And the fun starts.
Klub (mladých) Budatkovedcov: Zázračný prášok
Deti milujú zázraky. Je ich plný svet. Aj ja by som chcela žiť v dobe, kedy učiteľ miesto intenzívneho čmárania po tabuli vytiahne dve skúmavky a pred mojimi očami na stole spraví farebný výbuch. Žijem v takej ako rodič - učiteľ svojho dieťaťa a užívam si to plnými dúškami. Pridáte sa?
Návšteva čokoládovne Hauswirth
Minulý týždeň v sobotu sme boli po dlhom predlhom čase opäť na návšteve čokoládovne Hauswirth v Kittsee. Ide o malú rodinnú fabriku, ktorá od roku 1949 vyrába čokoládu a čokoládou obaľované penové, želé a fondánové bonbóny a čokolády. Franz Hauswirth senior kúpil dom a objavil v ňom staré formy na odlievanie čokolády a tak nejako sa začala história tejto fabriky. V Kittsee fabriku postavili začiatkom 60tych rokov minulého storočia a odvtedy priťahuje návštevníkov so sladkými jazýčkami.
Kaffee & Tee, Klatsch und Tratsch (in Deutsch) - Die Woche der Ehepaare
"Das Leben ist manchmal schwierig, für eine Person sogar zu schwierig, daher ist es gut, dass es zwei in der Ehe gibt. Wenn einer müde ist, zieht der andere einfach mit ... und im besseren Fall bietet er sogar seine Schulter an, an die er sich zuerst anlehnen kann, sodass er leicht durch schwierige Situationen kommen kann, aber wenn beide müde oder überlastet sind, sind sie oft mal nicht sicher, ob man sich auf den anderen verlassen kann ... "
Coffee, Tea & Chat (in English) - National week of marriage
“Life is sometimes difficult, even too difficult for one, so it´s good that there are two in marriage. When one is tired, the other just pulls in ... and in the better case will even offer his shoulder the first one can lean on, so they can easily get through difficult situations, but when they are both tired or overloaded, they are not sure whether it is possible to rely on the other one ...”

Article
Reading - for someone it is the most beautiful free time in the world. They escape the dreary everyday life and travel into the world of fantasy. For some it is empty timeout without something extra. Many people do not even know when they last had a book in their hands. Some read everywhere. It is an activity that you practice without knowing in everyday life, driving a car (reading road signs), watching TV (news, advertising, translations ...) or even in the kitchen (recipes, food blogs, ...). Reading the book is about a bit more than just reading. A long-term reading activity will bring us much more.

HEALTH
Studies have shown that people who often deal with complex mental tasks in their lives and constantly challenge their brains continue to be mentally fit as they get older. Through regular reading and the continuous intake of new information, the brain is optimally challenged and the memory is trained, so that it is still powerful in old age.Life can be quite challenging and many find it hard to relax after a stressful day at work. Reading can help. People leave their hectic everyday life behind and flee into the world of fantasy, in which they find their way to their own lives and relax.

VOCABULARY
"Reading educates," they say. And indeed: By regular reading, the vocabulary expands automatically. The more frequently you are confronted with different words, the easier they become. By the way: if you read texts out loud, words are even easier to transfer from passive to active vocabulary.
Reading helps with writing, the University of California has found that reading novels always has an impact on one´s own writing style. Accordingly, the style of the author influence the writing skills of the reader, so that he unconsciously learns to wirte. He looks at narrative techniques and is inspired by the flow of writing.

READING HELPS IN FALLING ASLEEP
Many people have difficulty falling asleep. The events of the day are often too busy and switching off is simply not thinkable. In contrast, sleep rituals can help. If you take a book every evening and read a few pages, you will not only mentally calm down, but will give the evening a structure and end the day with a relaxing ritual. Maybe you remember your study times, because every book which I learned something from very quickly started a sleep ritual :) The more monotonous the book, the faster I fell asleep. My favorite bedtime book was economy.

SOCIAL SKILLS
According to a study at the New School for Social Research in New York, reading promotes empathy. By reading, readers learn to empathize with their counterparts, thereby increasing their understanding of the lives of others.
Reading extends the horizon. No matter if you want to escape your own life or if you are just curious and would like to get to know other people and places, reading is probably the cheapest way to travel. Stories provide insight into the lives of others, their thoughts, their work and their habits. You get to know distant places and experience foreign cultures. Readers look outside the box and broaden their horizons.

CREATIVITY & CONCENTRATION
By diving into the world of fantasy imagination is trained. Unlike in the cinema, it is the readers themselves who create the images for the text. Even with children, it can be seen that regular reading has a positive influence on creativity; their ingenuity and imagination improve. And even in adulthood, creativity pays off, as it is an important prerequisite for successfully dealing with conflicts.
Information and news are often served quickly and shortly. We click through the web hectic, read a status message here, headline there, update Twitter and skim the most important Facebook news. We stumble on catastrophe pictures from the news and look again quickly after the weather. Used to this pace, the reading of a novel at the end of the day seems to slow you down.

READING MAKES YOU SEXY
Surveys have STATED people who read in public looks to be more intelligent. A book in her hand makes her more attractive and desirable. People give the impression that they are an interesting discussion partner and bring along empathy. Quiet in this hectic world, you can see them with a book on a bench or on the bus, too.
Although it´s sometimes hard to find time to read, most of the time it depends on the book, if you find the time. Look in the library, let yourself be helped and an interesting book will be easier to read than a boring one.

Questions
1. What are the reasons, you think, why you should read books?
2. When did you last read a good book?
3. What are you missing to find the time for a good book?
4. Have you already thought about writing a book? If so, what should it be about?
5. Have you read in your childhood and if so, what did you like the most?
6. Do you like reading the reviews before a book selection? Why?
