Book Week 2015

Earlier this month it was book week! Always a good excuse to go shopping for books. Which I usually do with Wilma for this occasion. I had saved a book giftcard for the occasion and Wilma kindly extended my budget for the day :-)

We went to The Hague. After visiting some non-book shops (like Flying Tiger and Pipoos) we had lunch at LaPlace, and then we hit Van Stockum at their new location. It was my second visit and I love the vibe they've created, with a coffee corner (Bagels&Beans), reading chairs and a good assortment of non-fiction on topics right up my alley. They have fiction as well, but Wilma was slightly disappointed in that area. Oh, and for you public transport nerds: they still have a large section dedicated to trains and such.

Next up was the new Paagman around the corner. More fiction, a smaller (but still not too shabby) assortment of non-fiction, a children's section, a music&movies section and quite a lot of cookbooks. This store has a cleaner type of cool vibe, a more modest coffee corner and it seems they've moved the second hand section of De Sleghte in upstairs.

I ended up with three books;

  • Emo's reis (Emo's journey) by Dick de Boer, an expert on medieval history. I attended a lecture he gave about this book a couple of years ago and the book was on my wishlist ever since.
  • Geaarde kunst : Door de staat gekocht '40-'45, the catalogue of this exhibition at Museum Arnhem, about art bought by the Dutch state during nazi occupation. I'll be attending a seminar about this exhibition this spring and will have to write an exhibition review.
  • De zomer hou je ook niet tegen by Dimitri Verhulst, the complimentary book you get when you spend enough on books during book week.

The photo's with me in them were taken by Wilma.
