..and I'm going........

:partyparty:

A massive hall that KISS played in 1997, (I was there, lol) given over to books, books and more books. Most of the books are so cheap that, when I see one that's €3.95 I think "Oh that's rather expensive, not sure if I can afford that!", and they're all brand new. I usually spend about €30-€40. It's a great time to buy gifts. My partner and I love books and we'll be there all afternoon, and evening...... :elephant: I'll let you know what I get when I get back. :D

Oh good! It was an absolutely brilliant day, wasn't it.... at least in the North and in Utrecht as well, right?

Must have been busy on the 'terrasjes', there are so many nice ones in Utrecht.... glad you could be here to enjoy one of our summer's days.... :yippee:
