A couple of months ago, a colleague of mine came up with the idea of a book club. Soon we found some kindred spirits and a couple of weeks later we had our first meeting. In this post you could read all about the why’s and how’s of our book club.

Well… last Sunday we had our second gathering where we discussed the first book on our list: ‘Not without you’ by Alan and Irene Brogan. Below you can read all about our first real book club meeting! Read the rest of this entry »

A couple of months ago, a colleague of mine told me she wanted to start a book club. I immediately jumped to that idea and we started looking for people to join us. We quickly found 5 more booklovers and so it happened… that on a cold, grey, wet and windy January afternoon, the 7 of us came together for the kick off of our book club!

A couple of months ago I went to a lecture in Dordrecht… now the fact that this lecture was followed by a delicious high tea, may have persuaded me to actually make the effort to drive all the way to Dordrecht. But the topic of this lecture really appealed to me… the lecture was about Jane Austen and more specifically about travelling in Jane Austen’s time.

Now I won’t go into details about this lecture again… you can read all about it in this post. The reason why I look back on it now is the fact that the woman who gave that lecture, the lovely Karin Quint, is looking for Jane Austen fans to back her Kickstarter campaign.
