Someone is living this title... I‘m kind of jealous here! In the meantime, I‘m enjoying this peculiar but seductive novel.

Today, I started my first bullet journal - about books, what else. And I made my dining table into a mess, of course. Time to clean up, take a drink, start a new book, and add it to my journal. It‘s going to be a nice Friday night, I guess. 🍸📚📖

Nute I hope to take up this type of journaling one day. Have fun! 1mo

When you‘re reading and enjoying the first sunny spring day on your couch, get up for only a minute to get a drink, and find this when you‘re ready to sit down again.

It‘s dark and stormy outside on this Halloween‘s Eve 🕸🦇🎃 - a good night for finishing this literary thriller, and, well, for drinking this perfect Dark ‘n Stormy. 🥃

Just finishing this read, while looking out of my window to my own autumn-colored suburb. 🌰🍂🍁 I love the ending; it‘s full of possibility and hope, and forgiveness, in some way.

Just a fun read, but not my kind of book, because of the shallow characters and their white men's problems. They never looked outside their Manhattan 🏙 bubble. And oh, the irony - where was I reading this book...? That's right, in Central Park 🐿 🌿, the most Manhattan-like place of Manhattan...!

...almost as good as reading books: reorganizing your books. Sometimes this is all it takes to get a tidy mind again. Or, for so long it lasts, because, next mind-absorbing problem: which of these books to read first...!

The New York Trilogy | Paul Auster

Yes, finally ❤️ - I'm going to visit New York ✈️🌆, one whole week in August. I'll be staying in Williamsburg, and of course I'll visit as many bookstores as possible. Any recommendations - book-related 📖or, also important, drinks & food-related🍷☕️🌭? In the meantime, I'm rereading Paul Auster's New York Trilogy - one of my all time favorites.

Thinking about last weekend, when the sun was out and shining, and I was reading some Dutch classic novel in our garden. At the moment, it's pouring... ⛈The cat seems to be intrigued by the book, but there was some insect buzzing around... 🐝🐝🐝

Reading this amazingly beautiful novel, almost painfully so. Luckily, there's also the stunning view of the Mont Blanc (yes, I'm camping in France, in the French Alps, with the sound of cow bells as background music).

Nute Wow! 1mo

Last weekend, reading in the garden - the Dutch translation of Faces in the Crowd. Strangely intriguing book; it has a surrealistic feel, which is a perfect match to a sunny afternoon in a lush green garden. 🌳🌻☀️

My very first Netgalley read! I feel like it's Christmas... 🎁 And I really love Jennifer Egan. I've read all her books, so I can't wait to start this new one. Luckily, it's Friday night. 🛁 🍸

Outside an rainy day 💦, inside it's warm, cozy ☕️ - reading time! It's an intriguing one, this book of Iain Reid. What's happening...? 💬

Just started reading this one - not only because it's matching colours with the painting in the dining room, but it's a nice background...!

The most gripping book I've read in ages. And yet so human. Beautiful!
