Hello there visitor!
Do you love to read, like me?
Then please take your time and look around on my shelf. If you find something you like, feel free to contact me.

About me:
I like to sleep, to cook, to run, to write, and lots of other things, but I simply *love* to read.

Just to give you an idea of my taste in books, a few of my favourite authors are: Arnaldur Indriðason; Thea Beckman; Louis Couperus; Renate Dorrestein; Hella S. Haasse; Barbara Kingsolver; Guus Kuijer; Astrid Lindgren; Margriet de Moor; F. Springer; Patrick Süskind; Fiona Walker & Oscar Wilde. As you see I like all sorts of books.

A few of my (all-time?) favourite books are:
~The Bone People: Keri Hulme~
~Bougainville: F. Springer~
~The Catcher in the Rye: J.D. Salinger~
~French Relations: Fiona Walker~
~De ontdekking van de hemel: Harry Mülisch~
~The Time Traveler's Wife: Audrey Niffenegger~ (*the 2004 read*)
~Middlesex: Jeffrey Eugenides~ (*the 2006 read*)

I'm currently reading:

* Maps: Nuruddin Farah

And of course there are also books that I would still like to read. Here's my wishlist (thank you cliff1976!). Somehow it keeps expanding...

Interested what I read this year?
Here you find the books I read in 2008. And, if you are really interested, here are 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004 as well.

These are my challenges for 2008 (the same as in 2007):
* Finally tackle my stress causing Pile TBR (status: 1 down, 3 to go) (2007: read 7)
* Read 30 books of my private Mount TBR (status: 16 down, 14 to go) (2007: read 29)
