Why everyone should use a library

I have a somewhat difficult relationship to libraries because I have seen too many bad libraries in the past. Currently, I have access to an amazing library system and I want to use the opportunity and talk a bit about that. But don’t get me wrong, I know that not everything I describe here is […]

Sharing books

In my last job, I used to travel quite a bit. This travelling was always on public transport, mainly trains. A frequent announcement on these trains reminded passengers not to litter. I wholeheartedly agree with that, with one exception: reading material. I quite enjoyed finding a newspaper or a book to read while travelling. If […]

Board games – my favourite pastime

There is something I’m very happy to admit: I’m a gamer, a board gamer. Once a fortnight I meet about ten other people and play board games. We always have a collection of new games and classics. Some I might have played before, most of them are new to me. And I really enjoy it! […]

Tech-Freedom

I like technology as much as the next person. I have a smartphone, a tablet, a notebook, ebook reader … you name it. But sometimes I like to switch off. We have established a few zones in our house where technology is not welcome. Before you read on, let me just say that I don’t […]
