Yay, more Best Reads 2008 from my colleagues!
It’s the penultimate list, so have a good look at what Steven (Special Order Department Whipcracker), Tiemen (Jack of All Trades and all round Nice Guy ™, Amsterdam), Tjeerd (Lady of the House, Special Order Department, Amsterdam) and Eefje (New Age/Consciousness buyer, Customer Service Idol, Den Haag) have to offer… Find out who digs potato peels, who likes drag queens, who enjoys sci-fi, and who has been reading forgotten classics.
Edit: One other Top 5 came in under the radar, which I’m including here! Thank you Ester (Movie Checker, Manga, Art, Horror, Classics Buyer, Den Haag) for finding some time in your hectic month to mail them through…
Thanks to all those colleagues who sent something in – I love to read about what everyone else is reading! Although this year there’s not one clear favorite, methinks.
After the jump!
Here’s a snapshot of what some of ABC Amsterdam back stage team were reading in June.
