Read My Mind Annual Issue 2020 is out now!


2020 has been a crazy year for all of us. Who would have thought that toilet paper would become such a popular product? COVID-19, social distancing, and face masks have changed our entire life. Normality is what we all pray for. Normality is what we all need ASAP!

Many people say that thanks to Corona they have realized what life is really about and how important family and friends are. To be honest for us nothing has changed. We live in a country where people, family, friends, work colleagues, and neighbors are practicing social distancing even before the Pandemic crisis. Loneliness and social isolation are part of Swiss culture. So Corona hasn’t changed our life at all.

What we really miss though is traveling. We love discovering new cities. Not being able to get away for a few days or weeks has been extremely challenging for both of us. So we used the time and published eight new stories. Some of our books have been also translated into Italian and Spanish. You find them all in this magazine. We also had time to watch great series on Netflix that we reviewed here with 4 or 5 stars.

We hope you enjoy browsing this free online magazine and wish you and your loved ones a lovely and stress and corona-free Christmas! Let’s all hope and pray for a normal 2021! Lily & Sima

Lemon, When Later Becomes Never


Dear Dog & Book Lovers please meet my Ambassador Lemon. This heartbreaking story is available in English and German and is inspired by a bittersweet true story. 

Lemon is a cute little dog living in a refugee house in Zurich city. His owner has taken care of asylum seekers in Switzerland for many years. Almost weekly new families arrive and Lemon is there to welcome the humans. He is also there to cheer everyone up in a difficult time with his cuteness, love and tenderness. Lemon is used to seeing families come and go, but the story of Mansour, a little boy, and his heartbreaking destiny changes Lemon’s life forever.

My Voice for the Voiceless
In loving memory of Mansour M. (1982 – 1992)

Meanwhile, Lemons's heartbreaking story is available in English and German. You find all the links on my website
