Like I mentioned in my previous book store post, social media can get you to know a lot of things you didn’t previously did.

Social media is an amazing thing. Once you get sucked into a community you can find things you never looked at before. One of those things is the book store Drvkkerij in Middelburg.

Amsterdam is… Continue reading Book Stores #4 – Waterstones Amsterdam
I remember when this book store was just called Waanders and established in a different street within the centre of Zwolle.

It seems… Continue reading Book Stores #3 – Waanders in de Broeren
