Hollow City, by Ransom Riggs. A second installment in the trio of Miss Peregrine's School for Peculiar children. Not a heavy read, but original content.

^I also seldom read only one book at a time. :) Probably the only way I can read al the ones I buy/get/win in a reasonable amount of time.

But what I have read out this week :

Nederland en de Nieuwe Wereld - H. Wim Van den Doel

It contained a lot of things I already knew (like for example the limited interest the Dutch government had for the overseas colonies, except for the East-Indies), alto with some new details. Most important new thing I learned was the historical reason Venezuela has an interest in Curacao.

De Verenigde Staten in de twintigste eeuw - Maarten Van Rossem

I do no remember reading a history book where the authors own political viewpoints where made that clearly.

On the currently reading list :

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
De saga van Grettur de Sterke - translated (into Dutch) by Tonny Buijs
De antichrist - Friederich Nietzsche
