Book Fair Deventer 2017

A while ago, there was the annual Boekenmarkt in Deventer. Like the years before (check 2015, I hadn't time to write about 2016), there were endless stands of book sellers. Mostly Dutch books, but some English as well and every once in a while a different language mixed in. Most of the books sold are second... Continue Reading →

Places with books: an old telephone cell in Berlin

Last week I went to the Dutch embassy in Berlin to get my passport renewed. On the drive there, a couple hundred meters before arriving at our destination, I spotted a telephone cell, lined with books. Obviously, I had to go back there after renewing my passport. It's between the river Spree and the Kupfergraben, a... Continue Reading →

Book Unhaul 2017 Part 1

I've written a couple of posts before, about unhauling books. It definitely feels very freeing to just let go of the ones I didn't like, or the ones I'll never read again.  Unhaul #1 (2015) Unhaul #2 (2015) Unhaul #3 (2016) Unhaul #4 (2016, Mari Kondo) Like I did the end of last year, I'm...

Bookhaul: April & May

Don't be scared, but be warned. It's a long list. I was lucky enough to find someone giving away their entire YA English collection and get a bunch of books from them. Also allowing me to spend most of my money otherwise. So, sit back and relax. It's gonna take a while. In the other... Continue Reading →

Glanerbrug Boekenbeurs 2017

Reading statistics – July 2016

Another month has ended. I only managed to read 5 books this month. Not surprising, as I went to Scotland for two weeks and somehow rewatched all the seasons of Gilmore Girls. In between all of that, there wasn't a lot of time left for reading. I also starting two other books that I didn't... Continue Reading →

Reading Lasses (Wigtown, Scotland)

Free Little Library: Niedernjesa

As you may have gathered from certain posts on my social media, I've been to several free little libraries. One of the closest to me is one in Niedernjesa. It's right in front of the Dorfsbäcker (village baker) in an old (bright yellow) telephone cell. There are never many original German or English books in... Continue Reading →
