98 year old dobri dobrev, a man who lost his hearing in the second world war, walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.
though a well known fixture around several of the city’s chruches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living instead off his monthly state pension of 80 euros.
there’s still good in this world
So, with the new TV show out, I’ve seen a new/renewed interest over the Hannibal novels by Thomas Harris so I thought this post would be helpful to those who liked the show and wish to read the original material or those who want to re-read them again.
Even if you don’t watch the show (or have seen the movies) or even know what a ‘Hannibal Lecter’ is (shame on you) these books are great and well written and very entertaining! So add them to your Spring/Summer reading list.
All are written by Thomas Harris, all are in PDF format so they are able to read virtually anywhere, and I HIGHLY recommend that you do go out and buy your own copies of the novels.
Have fun! (and don’t eat anyone)
