'Conversation takes the importance, the seriousness, the truth out of everything,' said Kafka. Noella reads because she agrees; stripped of a medium to connect with people, reading, for her, stems from a compulsion to communicate, connect, and continue believing that no man is an island. A philosophy student, the books which move her most are those which strike the very crux of both the questions which plague us most, and what it means and feels to be human, which she hopes to share with you. Here, you will find books written by movers and shakers of belief, on beauty, politics, relativity, love and more. Expect a smorgasbord of ideas, emotions and passions; expect those precious, golden holy shit moments.
