Thursday - Utrecht's books fair

I am quite fond of this event, since it's the first one I ever attended precisely 9 years ago on the day I moved to Holland.

Het boekenfestijn starts today in Utrecht and runs till Sunday, with free entrance and a wide selection of books in Dutch and English, all with hefty discounts on the original price.

Although it's hosted in a warehouse, there's enough space and (oddly enough), quietness, to browse trough thousands of volumes of  fiction, popular science, posh coffee table books and quirky and bizarre titles you would have never thought existed.

The event is itinerant and will travel to Zwolle and Eindhoven in the coming months.

Wide selection of dictionaries available too!
