Recommended books especially good from the 91 books read in 2016 5 books

It is Director Shigematsu. Hello.

Looking back on 2016, I also read hundreds of books because I also stayed in the hospital. When you count it, 91 volumes. Contents are novels, essays, photograph collections, manga, business books … but, regardless of the genre from among them, it stains in my heart, it has come to a close, I leave something like a mass of emotions that I can not digest yet I will introduce five books that I gave you.

1. On the Beach / Yeoh Rail

A beautiful book that Yohgrair left. In an interview somewhere, “The color, shape and feel of design are secondary matter, it is that it is important or important that you really have to think about” I remember what I was saying. From this book you will make me think back to the origin about the merits and demerits of creating something, creating something. For me it became a very important book.

2. Around the World / Kohachi Nishiki

Because I can not find the book of “Gururi’s thing”, it is a picture of “Picking strawberries when spring comes up”. What is written is about personal belongings. Weather, memories, friends, current affairs story, dogs keeping. The scenery that I visited with my legs stretched on holiday and things I remember as though it was a long time ago. It is also beautiful how to splice pieces while looking at its descriptive power. It was as if I was able to touch bold and delicate beauty awareness like a paper of “The thirty six people”.

Bernard Rudofsky

3. Architecture without an architect / B. Rudolfski

It has nothing to do with the contents of this book, but I remember it after reading. When I went to the Ischi Guarast nature park in Argentina (a place famous for dinosaur fossils). “The dinosaurs flourished over the Earth for 18000 years, the guides said while drinking mate tea, human beings are still around 100,000 years. There is still much more that we can learn from the world’s longest living species Do not you think? ” I thought that there are plenty of things we can learn from the anonymous building group at the vernacular collected in this book.

4. Tea and Beauty / Mr. Yanagi

“Healthy beauty” “Beauty of safety” “Beauty of affinity” “Poison of consciousness” “Nature rather than act” “Wisdom than humanity” Beauty is not something that can be produced but is born out of nature, I love and fascinate with the powerful words that come from the great ideas of Mr. Yanagi Muneyoshi. The one I especially like is the next sentence. “I want to encourage particular attention, as far as beauty is concerned, rather than discussing from the side of” things “, how important is it to touch directly with” things “, then” to know It is that how much more important decision power the “viewing power” has than the ability to see. “

feodor dostoyevsky

5. Karamazov's Brothers / Dostoevsky

I mention it as one of the most important books Haruki Murakami interviewed in my life, the first place of the book the University of Tokyo University wants freshmen to read in all fields, all the novels that have been written And the most interesting. I was hungry just by such way of introduction, in addition to that I also thought that it would not be familiar with the style as well, so it was amazing to read it. It was really amazing. I like the scene where Alisa falls when he leaves the church and rises up.
