About meI was born in Holland in 1984, and am currently living near Amsterdam. I'm a student of English, am active in local politics, and try to earn some money by working in a bar. I'm being told that I also possess both a private and a social life, but considering how little free time I actually have, this seems rather implausible.

About my libraryApart from being annoyingly modest, my library is a mixture of Dutch and English books - the former simply because Dutch is my native tongue, the latter mostly because I'm a student of English at the University of Amsterdam. That, and the fact that I simply like them. Highlights include some pretty dusty tomes that the Royal Library doesn't seem to recognize, a rather irrational collection of history books, and vast (well... less embarrassingly small) numbers of pulp novels.

Hey, I'm not the one pretending to be a proper intellectual ;)
