    I am from Germany and for reading news in my mother tongue I use:
    Die Zeit
    Der Spiegel

    For global news I read:
    The New York Times
    Reuters
    The BBC

    I want a neutral view on news and they should be fact-based. If you can recommend me better sites than the ones I read or have to tell me smth about one of the sites, please do so. If I'm not sure with a news site I usually check on mediabiasfactcheck

    I'm re-reading Oyasumi Punpun for the second time and am still amazed by how good the whole story is and how beautiful it is drawn. I think I can also identify myself with many aspects of the manga like being shy and not saying what I really want. But hey I'm definitely working on being a more confident person and saying what I want.

    I also bought Talking to Strangers by Malcom Gladwell, but can't really make something out of it yet. I'm halfway through with it and the stories he grabs up from spies who fooled the CIA and presidents who were fooled by Hitler, don't really feel like they are giving me something back. I can't describe it better than writing that it feels like a lot of information without much use. But I have to say that I get now how hard it has to be for lawyers and judges to understand a person and give him the fair trial he deserves.
