There's a little things so satisfying as meeting the right book in the right time of life, just when you need it.

The book finds you at random and you don't even need to wonder where has it been all your life - it has been waiting patiently.

It doesn't have to be the best book ever written; it doesn't even have to be the genre you would normally read, that doesn't matter at all.

And that was this kind of a book experience for me.
I found it on a bookcrossing shelf before my language lessons: I was just sitting there, being too early as always, trying to kill some time browsing books. I still don't know what made me put this tome into my bag, the cover lacked even a blurb.

I can't even describe you why I liked it so much, after all. I just know that when I was reading it blissfully in my tram to work, I was always surprised when I looked up and noticed that the weather is not as pretty as the one within the pages.

It made me calm and happy for so long I deliberately slowed down my pace of reading, to save some pages for later - and this is such a great book for doing so; not fast paced at all, not even very eventful.

It's the book I will miss sorely and kind of feel like keeping it forever, but which I also want to share with as many people as possible. Maybe someone will need it now as much as I did. Maybe we all need this book - I highly recommend trying, maybe you will become fast friends with it.
