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?

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 ...”

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Pride and Prejudice is an 1813 romantic novel by Jane Austen. It charts the emotional development of the protagonist Elizabeth Bennet, who learns the error of making hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the difference between the superficial and the essential. The comedy of the writing lies in the depiction of manners, education, marriage and money during the Regency era in Britain. Pride and Prejudice has long fascinated readers, consistently appearing near the top of lists of "most-loved books" among literary scholars and the general public. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature.

CATCH-22
Often cited as one of the most significant novels of the twentieth century, the novel from American author Joseph Heller is set during World War II, from 1942 to 1944. It mainly follows the life of Captain John Yossarian, a U.S. Army Air Forces B-25 bombardier. Most of the events in the book occur while the fictional 256th Squadron is based on the island of Pianosa, in the Mediterranean Sea, west of Italy. The novel looks into the experiences of Yossarian and the other airmen in the camp, who attempt to maintain their sanity while fulfilling their service requirements so that they may return home.

THE LORD OF THE RINGS
The Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy novel written by English author and scholar J. R. R. Tolkien. The title of the novel refers to the story´s main antagonist, the Dark Lord Sauron, who had in an earlier age created the One Ring to rule the other Rings of Power as the ultimate weapon in his campaign to conquer and rule all of Middle-earth. From quiet beginnings in the Shire, a hobbit land not unlike the English countryside, the story ranges across Middle-earth, following the course of the War of the Ring through the eyes of its characters, not only the hobbits but also the hobbits´ chief allies and travelling companions from several species.

JANE EYRE
This book originally published as Jane Eyre: An Autobiography) is a novel by English writer Charlotte Brontë, published under the pen name "Currer Bell". The novel revolutionized prose fiction in that the focus on Jane´s moral and spiritual development is told through an intimate, first-person narrative, where actions and events are colored by a psychological intensity. The book contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of Christian morality at its core and is considered by many to be ahead of its time because of Jane´s individualistic character and how the novel approaches the topics of class, sexuality, religion and feminism.

1984 (ORIGINALTITLE: NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR)
Nineteen Eighty-Four, often published as 1984, is a dystopian novel by English writer George Orwell. In the novel, Great Britain ("Airstrip One") has become a province of a super state named Oceania. Oceania is ruled by the "Party", who employ the "Thought Police" to persecute individualism and independent thinking.[4] The Party´s leader is Big Brother, who enjoys an intense cult of personality but may not even exist. The protagonist of the novel, Winston Smith, is a rank-and-file Party member. Smith is an outwardly diligent and skillful worker, but he secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion against Big Brother. Smith rebels by entering a forbidden relationship with fellow employee Julia.

HARRY POTTER
It’s a series of fantasy novels written by British author J. K. Rowling. The novels chronicle the lives of a young wizard, Harry Potter, and his friends, all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The main story arc concerns Harry´s struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to become immortal, overthrow the wizard governing body known as the Ministry of Magic, and subjugate all wizards and Muggles (non-magical people).
After eight other publishers had rejected Philosopher´s Stone, Bloomsbury offered Rowling a £2,500 advance for its publication. Having sold more than 500 million copies worldwide, Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling is the best-selling book series in history. The series has been translated into 80 languages, placing Rowling among the most translated authors in history.
