Books & Media

Since my early childhood I have been an enthusiastic reader. Already in the baby box I pretended to read the tv guides. My mother loved to read books to me and my younger sister: Nijntje, Jip & Janneke, and other favourite Dutch children’s books. I started primary school when I was almost six years old and by that time already had started trying to read and write. Later I prefered reading a book in my room above playing on the streets.

Still I read a lot, but not only royal magazines and books. I also love historical novels and especially crime books. A combination of both history and crime can be a really good read. If I only can find time and don’t sit behind the computer, you’ll find me often reading a book on the sofa. I also love to take a book with me – not too heavy – when travelling.
