About meI,m Erik, born in 1966 and living in Utrecht, a nice city in the centre of the Netherlands. My hobbies include eating well, listening music, watching movies and of course reading. I read on average 2 hours a day with a speed of about 50 pages an hour. So, I have read an awful lot during the past 15 years.

About my libraryMain interests in reading are literature (the great writers from the past and literature originally written in Dutch), travel books (especially bicycling books), history (general world history or european history), art (photography) and children books. I am also interested in Darwin and evolution theory and popular science. For a quick look at what I consider my most favorite books, chose the tag "My basic library"
