But the last week of February I had a week vacation, and that first weekend I read a lot of my favorite books from my childhood. In 2 days I read ten books of one of my favorite authors Cissy van Marxveldt, who wrote books in the twenties and thirties. Every time when I need a book to give me some energy, I pick up one of her books.
I finally saw a chance to read Seven Storey mountain by Thomas Merton. I have an old Dutch translation, but I prefered this to the original English since I found it better to understand. When it comes to books about theology, I prefer them in Dutch!

What am I reading now?
For my little reading group I have with my mum I am reading For a god unknown by John Steinbeck. Also quite beautiful, but not what I expected.
On the bus to school I am reading A daughter's a daughter by Mary Westmacott. This is the pseudonym of Agatha Christie and it is a good book. Review will follow!
I am not sure what I will be reading next. Coming week I will be away on a schooltrip, so I do not think I will have a lot of time to read. So it is all open and quite a surprise!
