The Notting Hill Bookshop - May 2019


Since 2008 I borowed about 500 books from Olomouc Scientific Library on various topics. I read non-fiction, grafic novels, comics, classics and I well remember from my childhood The man who would be God about "Father of the Atomic Bomb" Robert Oppenheimer and Manhattan project. Till today I have set of Vaclav Havel books in Czech and English versions. I read slowly so I prefer audiobooks which I could listen in car or in job.

Havels books : Living in Truth (1986) and Summer Meditations (1992)


I was mostly a visitor of plays by theater ensembles Bezruči, Aréna, Point, Sklep and my favourite ones Cimrmani or Antonin Prochazka plays. I am a supporter and amateur operator of puppet plays.
