My name is Stefanie and I live in Flanders, Belgium. I’m 34 years old, single and an avid reader (mostly Dutch and English). I’m a corporate translator (Dutch – French – English – Spanish), I’ve knowledge of German and I’m learning Swedish.
As a hobby (so no payment!) I’m an administrator of a Dutch book group on Facebook, called Boekenfans!, with about 15.000+ members. I ‘work’ with Dutch authors as well, reading their manuscript and correcting them / giving advice, for free (It’s a hobby after all!) . I furthermore have some contacts with Dutch / English publishing houses which generously give me books in exchange to read and review, again for free.
The latter is the reason I’m starting a blog! As a thank you to the publishers and authors I’ll share my reviews and other interesting facts (interviews, guest posts, extracts, promo’s, cover reveals, …) about books here, again without payment whatsoever.
I hope you’ll enjoy my take on things, visit a lot and maybe find some tips on books to read.
