Store Bits: staff favorites, BBDs, event pics, lost and found, and a vlog!

Jilles is all excited about the new Michael Singer, The Surrender Experiment!  Singer’s previous book, The Untethered Soul, is one of Jilles’s all-time favorites.  You can read his review of it here.

Our Tiemen presents: New YA Blind Book Dates!  BBDs have been a firm fixture in the Amsterdam Science Fiction & Fantasy section for quite some time now, and people have requested they also be made for the YA section there.  Tiemen was more than happy to oblige. 🙂  Have fun picking out your date!

YA blind book dates, hooray!


We had a plethora of author events at the store and in the wild this past weekend: Amsterdamse Boekennacht, Lauren Beukes, Steve McCurry and TEDxAmsterdam all happened, people!  Visit our Facebook page for pictures of all of these shindigs – and check out our Upcoming Events so you can be part of the next ones.
