Hello everyone!

I am so happy I found this website!! Finally, I'll be able to share my interest with other people!

I am currently in the process of registering my books. Please feel free to ask me if you want to borrow a book! Unfortunately my collection isn't that big. I left a lot of books behind while moving around... :( A pity I didn't know about bookcrossing back then.

I am a rather eclectic reader, mostly literature and fiction, sometimes essays. My taste ranges from French contemporaneous literature (Desplechin, Nothomb, Bouraoui, Scott, Houllebecq, etc.), to Gothic novel including South American authors (Cortazar, Borges, Allende, Garcia Marquez, etc.) and Beat Generation literature!

As far as Dutch literature is concerned, I don't exactly know where to begin, so PM me if you have tips!!!

Asphyxie By Ann Scott (French)
