My parents store our old belongings on the attic of their house, and when I was in the Netherlands I spend an afternoon going through them. I found a lot of the books that I had really missed in the last 2 years.
In the week that I was in Holland I also bought a couple of books. Mainly about Dutch recent politics and some nostalgic literature.
I brought some of the books with me in my luggage, but there were way too many to bring all of them. I sent the books by economy mail from the Netherlands to Durham (8.4 kg/18 pounds). The books had been in transit for 8 weeks, but they arrived on Saturday in good shape.
Books I brought:
- Colloquial Bulgarian
- Thinking the Unthinkable
- Founding Brothers
- Bulgarian for Foreigners
- The Federalist
- The COnstitution of the United States
- The Words We Live By
- Economist Style Guide
- The Globe, the Science of Discworld
- The Color of Magic (in Bulgarian)
New books, that I bought when I was in the Netherlands:
- Ooggetuigen van de Gouden Eeuw
- Dit land kan zoveel beter
- In Godsnaam
- Brieven aan Ayaan Hirshi Ali
- Ik mis alleen de Hema
- Dutch Delight
- De Hollandse Metamorfose
