Adapt, learn - and become creative!

In the past month, the world has been adapting to a new lifestyle.
We at the ABC are driven by the goal to remain, in these uncertain times, what we have been representing in the past 48 years: a space (physical or abstract) for ideas, where book lovers get together in order to share their passion.
So we have adjusted our workflow to closed physical stores, while mail orders have exploded and phones keep ringing - thank you so much for your continued support!

We have joined the initiative "Amsterdammers kopen hun boeken bij een Amsterdamse boekwinkel", created in order to support local bookshops.

Our booksellers are doing their best to provide customers with enough reading material for self-isolation. Check out our dedicated Reading Care Packages, offered at great prices and delivered to your home (in NL) with free shipping.

Our fearless Open Mic host Luke has organized the first virtual ABC event ever, with attendees from inside and outside of the Netherlands and great performances. It went so well that we decided to plan ahead for a few more events.

And we won't stop: We might try out pick-up points in our stores where customers can collect their books safely. Keep an eye on our communication via this Mailing or ABC social media.

For now, stay home and stay healthy - we hope to see you all in person sometime soon.

Happy Easter,
the ABC staff
