Stack up books - let's get cozy

It's getting cold and rainy and this is the best time to stack up books. Need some inspiration?

Every Tuesday morning, one of our booksellers is hosting our virtual Books & Coffee Break. You are invited to share your personal read(s) and get inspired by the to-be-read-list of other attendees. Here is a list of the books we have discussed so far.

If you are into Young Adult Fiction, we are excited about this week's new release by Jennifer Niven, the author of All the Bright Places. Join us for a virtual book launch with the author presenting her new book, Breathless!

It's the Dutch Kinderboekenweek! Reading aloud is one of the greatest gifts we can offer to our kids. Every Saturday in October, join us in our pop-up store for the ABC Story time in Stadshart Amstelveen.

Wherever you are - whatever you do - keep reading,
your ABC staff
