Dutch publishers are having translations done by writers instead of translators and I don't like this trend.
I really don't know how daily column writers do it.
In 2020 I read exactly a hundred books. Read more about them in this post!
I loooooove books with notes in them.
I'm getting used to social distanced book clubs.
Adriaan van Dis' wonderful novel Dubbelliefde makes me reflect on the influence of the dark academia aesthetic.
What is good reading?
Books are the best. My whole house is filled with them. I am very much convinced that you can never have too many books.
Sometimes there’s a place where it all comes together. The Dutch town of Leiden has a new place like this: Index Poetry.
As I told you in my previous blog post, I recently submitted some poetry to a Dutch writing contest, Write Now!. I was very nervous to put my writing out there and it has been quite a process.
