Top 5 Of New April Books To Spend Your Time With
I don't have time for reading. It's usually the answer when we ask what book our collocutor is reading. And then we recommend them Michael Ende's Momo (or The Men in Grey) about the grey parasites stealing time from people. They represent the Timesavings bank and offer the people of the town to deposit their time and receive it back later with interest. So people begin to save their time, depriving themselves from any activity, which they consider as a time waste, such as entertainment, art, imagination and even sleeping. The town becomes grey and dull with all people having less and less time every day, except the Men in Grey who use the time they get in a form of smoking cigars. The only one to save people from time deprivation is a little girl called Momo who destroys these wicked time stealing individuals and returns time back to the dwellers of the town.
So don't become a slave to those Men in Grey. You always have time for an adventure, social investigation or just a simple relaxation. Or for a bunch of pages of fiction. In case you have no reading list, here's our Top 5 of new April publications:
