Dutch publishers are having translations done by writers instead of translators and I don't like this trend.
I knew when I started this process that it would be hard, and last week I had my first official meltdown about my PhD. It wasn’t exactly nice but I’m not too worried about it either: I guess it’s part of the deal.
Do you ever feel that pressure to like a book, especially when reading the big names from world literature?
I need to get used to being by myself again sometimes.

I loooooove books with notes in them.
I'm getting used to social distanced book clubs.
Last month I officially started my PhD at the university of Amsterdam and I got a really warm welcome.
