Book Haul: Summer in Greece Ebooks Edition

You know, I used to be one of those people who praised the beauty of holding a physical book in their hands, fumbling with real pages and using actual bookmarks when the time came to close the book and succumb to the seductive powers of sleep. But, having attempted to travel from Groningen to the…

Summer in Greece TBR

I arrived in Athens a week ago and I am proud to say that this time I only brought six books with me. Okay, it turned out it was seven. Plus my kindle. The weather requires reading under the cool protection of the air conditioner, preferably with a cold drink next to me. These are…

Book Haul: September 2017

Hello fellow book people! We are well on our way to a mostly rainy and windy Autumn here in Groningen, the university classes have started and the Man Booker shortlist was announced just a couple of days ago. I had decided to undertake the Project Man Booker 2017 here on my blog, by attempting to read all…

Book Haul (August 2017)

Well, hello again. It’s been a while. A little over a couple of weeks to be precise during which I returned from vacation and moved to a different apartment. Again. I am currently in my fifth apartment here in Groningen living on the fourth floor of a huge block of flats with the dogs next…

Book Haul (July 2017)

Hello again and welcome to another book haul! Today’s book haul is deceiving because I actually bought all these books in June. And yes, I’ve been very good to my wallet so far and haven’t bought a single book since the beginning of June which is quite the accomplishment for me. Unfortunately, my booknerd friend…

Book Haul (June 2017)

The book haul that follows consists of eight titles, a small number compared to some other book hauls I’ve done. The reason this has happened is because I bought so many books in June that I decided to not buy any books in July. I also decided to send the rest of the books I…

Book Haul (May 2017)

It is not without a great deal of pride that I am presenting this rather small – for me – book haul this month. It is the first time in a month of 2017, in which I am not expecting any mail from the nice orange lady (she wears orange, I call her orange lady,…

Book Haul (April 2017)

Dear reader, I have a problem. My book buying has been out of control lately. This months excuse were the Bailey’s longlist for Women’s Fiction and the fact that I found many titles on Amazon for very cheap. There is only shame and joy for the having a lot of books delivered to my door….

Book Haul (March 2017)

This month I am bringing, yet again, another big book haul! Apart from the five books that I am planning on picking up in March, I made the mistake to go into a bookstore. There, the temptation was of course very big but I behaved myself and actually came out of it empty handed. Then,…

Book Haul (February 2017)

I was just about to start writing this post when I realised that I did not make a January Book Haul post. As a result, this is going to be a rather massive, collective book haul for the months of January and February. Let’s jump right in: 4 3 2 1 by Paul Auster During the…
