The AntiLoneliness Book Club is Here!
We love books and we made it part of our mission: to bring together people who love books and to help them connect with each other.
Each month, one topic, two books, one poll. The topic can be about relationships, grief, loneliness, expat life, etc. Participation in the poll is necessary as we need to choose only one book for each month. This year has a (book) plan!
The Manifesto of "Loneliness". :-)

(Andy, by the way, has recently initiated a Podcast website called "Here in Holland" and at the website you can listen to many many interviews from interesting people around Holland and also how expats experience Dutch life).
Enjoy the interview, and please share your thoughts on the comment area.
