"Reading is dreaming with open eyes" a clever person once wrote. But reading is much more than that. Reading opens up worlds to you that you didn't even know existed.
The wealth of knowledge of all mankind is documented in books and available to all people. Reading is a cornerstone of education and therefore it also plays a role in the Timeless Challenge .
It is not important about which topic you read, because you can broaden your horizon with reading and collect important life score points "on the side".
The rules of our reading challenge are very simple. You read and enjoy books and note how many there were in a year. Of course, the books you have already read this year also count. The Life-Score points count to the life area "personality". They help you to get closer to the beautiful marbles held in yellow. But how big will the marble you get be?
The point of this challenge is really just to read regularly and thereby constantly educate yourself and keep yourself open to new things. This makes you a more interesting person and a more valuable and educated member of our society.
A new challenge every Monday and Thursday! Stay informed!

You can earn valuable Life Score points with each book. In the following table you will find the scale. We have focused on the number of books read per year.
But even if you just start reading and read 10 pages for a year, you've earned Life Score points as well.

|10 books per year||50|
|20 books per year||100|
|30 books per year||150|
|40 books per year||200|
|50 books per year||250|
|10 Seiten pro Tag (ein Jahr lang)||50|
Marbles for the "Reading Challenge"
For the reading challenge you can get the beautiful marbles in yellow. These have the following sizes:
- 10 books or 10 pages per day per year - A yellow marble with a diameter of 20mm
- 20 books per year - A yellow marble with a diameter of 25mm
- 30 books per year - One yellow marble with a diameter of 25mm and one yellow marble with a diameter of 20mm
- 40 books per year - Two yellow marbles with a diameter of 25mm
- 40 books per year - Two yellow marbles with a diameter of 25mm and one yellow marble with a diameter of 20mm
If you want to have the marbles, then we are very grateful for a monetary coffee. You decide the amount. However, please note that we have about 1.20 EUR postage costs. So throw into our coffee fund what you think is right. If the amount is higher than our costs (marble costs and postage), then the money goes to the reforestation of worldwide forests as well as to the further development of the Timeless Challenge.
Please fill out the form below and write the amount for the marbles in the free text field "How much was the Challenge worth to you?”.

My favorite books
I love reading and I have already read a lot of books or listened to them as audio books. Especially audio books I "consume" incredibly many, because I listen exclusively to audio books during sports. Books that fascinate me as an audio book I then usually buy as a print edition and read them again. I do this very often, especially with non-fiction books.
I would like to introduce you to my favorite books here. I deliberately mix novels with non-fiction and guidebooks so that the recommendations are not one-sided.
Attention: If you buy by clicking on my book recommendations, we get a small commission. You have no disadvantages and you don't pay a cent more! Thank you very much for your support.
The Big Five for Life - What really counts in life
This book by John Strelecky fascinates me and I have already read it over ten times or listened to it as an audio book. It's about a content employee (John) who meets the charismatic Thomas. Thomas runs dozens of businesses and initiates John into the secrets of success. But it's not just about professional success..... The book opens eyes and hearts!
After this book you will see the world differently than before! I am sure that my thesis also applies to you. Hans Rosling shows you how to actually see the news, statistics and messages that are pelting at us. After this book you will look behind the veil and see the world much clearer. An absolute hot tip!
Daniel Wolf - The salt of the earth
If you love historical novels, you should read Daniel Wolf! My first book by him was "The Salt of the Earth". I don't want to give anything away but this much I can tell you: I couldn't put the book down. And you will feel the same 🙂
James Alexander Michener – Alaska
And now we come to my favorite author, James A. Michener! I have read all of his books and recommend "Alaska" to get you started. It's a thick tome, but worth every page. Michener was a world traveler and did extremely well research for his novels. So you learn about the country and its people without even realizing it. Michener's books (and so Alaska) are incredibly compelling!
In Blackout, Mark Elsberg describes the consequences of a power blackout throughout Europe in an extremely exciting novel. I chose this book for my list because it has a current reference and everyone should know how dependent we are on electricity. But I also chose it because this book is extremely exciting!!!
