Cool people read, ok?! 

Yes, it is true and this is how I want to start the article today. Why? Because people have given up reading newspapers, books, brochures, magazines or other materials because it’s not cool to read. People in 2018 no longer read?

Everyone thinks that fashionistas don’t read, they think that we are concerned only about shallow things. What? Books? Aha, no, no, we try at the next door, we can’t help you, we don’t have books. Well how? Well, simple.

Well, I don’t want to generalize, but to you, my reader, I want to tell you something: You’re cool! I swear!

Now we are getting serious, if all …

Let me tell you my story so we can start with the beginning. I wasn’t keen on reading until recently. Why? Because wasn’t reading the right books. School readings are mostly boring and monotonous, they have nothing new or maybe if they have, they are a little ” out of fashion”. And the types of books that most of the people usually read, like romance books didn’t impress me too much, so in the end I decided to say NO to any book that I came across.

Recently, I started to find books that fascinate me and to actually enjoy reading them.

We can not talk about my personal experience and how I’ve started to love reading on a different occasion, as we have to talk about what has brought us here,  3 books that I recommend you to read as soon as possible.

Start With Why – Simon Sinek

This book is usually addressed to entrepreneurs, to the ones that think they can change the World with their ideas. In this book he speaks about one thing that catches my eye: The Golden Circle, as the author named it.

And a quote that has stuck in my mind is:

“People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it. And what you do simply proves what you believe”

So if you want to find out more, you have to go to a book store or just go on the God damn Internet and order this book because I can assure you that it will be one of the best boos that you have ever come across.

The next one is for the fashionistas out there, but not only…

În numele lui Gucci – Patricia Gucci

This book is about, maybe, the most beautiful story in the fashion industry. The author of this book is the illegitimate daughter of Aldo Gucci and she tells the story of the well known brand but also te story of the man behind it and his professional and personal life. I would love to tell you more about it but I’m afraid that if I start I will tell you too much and you will not read the book anymore. I can tell you one thing: I was moved by the story that Patricia Gucci has put together beautifully in this book and I recommend it to you even if you are not a fashionista, there is a lot to learn from this book.

And now the 3rd book is… for my Romanian readers, so this part of the article will be in Romanian.

Războiul Mondial al Fumătorilor – Marin Mălaicu-Hondrari

Am spus că nu îmi plac poveștile, dar am să fac o excepție din când în când. Mi-a picat această carte întâmplător în mană, dar m-a surprins.

Cartea lui Marin Mălaicu-Hondrari apare la fix, în mijlocul neînțelegerilor dintre fumători și nefumători, iar întreaga poveste este concentrată pe Constantin, personajul principal care inițial este surprins stând în șezlongul său din statul Camarile:„Stau lungit în şezlong, beau un whisky şi grămăjoara de chiştoace creşte în stânga mea pe măsură ce lumina scade”.

Pe măsură ce înaintăm, descoperim povestea de dragoste dintre Constantin și Ada Rivas Ponti, care pentru mine a avut un final neașteptat, iți spun sincer.

These are my 3 books recommendations, I have tried to choose different types of books so I can have something for everybody here. If you want to know what I am reading at the moment, I update my Goodreads profile almost all the time, so you can find me there: Raluca Lobaza, or you can follow on my blog Books To Date.
