The other day a friend gave me old books no longer in use. They’re from the beginning of 1900 century and written by the first woman Nobel Prize winner in literature Selma Lagerlöf. I read some of her books before, but now I have plenty more to read. She was a good writer and it’s very interesting to dive in the Swedish 1800-1900 centuries even if it is fiction. Her books gives us an idea of how it was back then. Her book is based on true stories, so it’s learning to read the books.
One of the stories is about the time when many Swedes moved to Jerusalem because of their faith. Many moved to America too, but some took the way to Jerusalem instead.
So now all I have to find is time to read these books. They are over hundred years old. Imagine that. The wings of history sings when I open the books.
I think her books are translated to other languages, so if you find her books somewhere near you and in your language, take the chance to read a book or two.
