Last month, crime writer Carmen Amato (Made in Acapulco) wrote a piece about how bookstores are surviving in these trying times. Our Marketing Director Karin was one of the people whose answer is featured.
Our Paul’s eagle eyes spotted an ABC mention in Het Parool’s feature on P. C. Hooftprijs winner Willem Jan Otten. We’re his favorite store. *blush*
“Hi, My name is Paul. I’m from Brazil and I recorded a video inside your store. My site, www.tujaviu.com, travels the world to show comic stores. I liked your comics section, on the second floor, and I decided to put something about you on my Youtube Channel. I put subtitles, in English, on the video.”
Thanks so much for your video, Paul, and for the endorsement of our Comics & Graphic Novels section!
And finally, as you might know, June is Thrillers Month (‘Maand van het spannende boek‘) in The Netherlands. We will be joining in the fun in our own way*, by giving everyone who buys a book from the Crime Fiction/Mysteries & Thrillers section this month a FREE copy of The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown!
(Already have a copy of The Lost Symbol? Give it away to a friend, parent, neighbor, colleague…)
*We are not eligible to give away the national Thriller gift, since we don’t sell Dutch-language books. Hence our alternative.
