We hope you got through that blustery March well and are ready for the longer days that April brings. Now that daylight savings time has started, there is that extra hour in the evening to read.
Be sure to check our special store hours for Easter and King's Day. We're always open online, of course, but seeing you in person and showing off our beautiful stores and well-stocked shelves in real life is so much more satisfying!
Happy reading,
The ABC Mailings Team
Our ABC The Hague store recently got a face-lift.
Due to some damage our entire entryway needed a remodel. The process took a while, but we do think the result is very pretty, don't you agree? We hope many of you will enjoy stepping through these doors in the years to come.
Congratulations to Charlotte Straat, who won the 3rd annual Fantastic Stories competition at Dutch Comic Con with her short story 'Rootless'!
You can read her entry here, along with the entries from the other 4 finalists.
Together with the Dutch Stichting Fantastisch Genre we sponsor this competition every year at DCC, and print the collection using Betty, our book-printing machine. The finalists all read their stories at DCC and received a print copy of the book they helped create.
Look who dropped in to our Amsterdam store: Eragon author Christopher Paolini
Our MariaS, Young Adult section buyer and Poalini superfan, gave him a grand tour.  He also signed a stack of his latest book The Fork, The Witch and the Worm.
Thanks for your visit, Christopher, come again next time you're in the country.
