Store Bits: John Green visits, comic bits, bookbrowse, Saul Leiter and Spui pics

Look who dropped by ABC Amsterdam last Sunday to cheer up the dreariest day of the year so far:

That’s John Green himself, author The Fault in Our Stars (read Oona’s You Review here) and many other YA books that have been flying off our shelves for more than a year.  Thanks for stopping by and cheering up our lives! (And signing all those books!)  Hope you enjoyed the bitter balls later on, and seeing the movie shoot. 🙂

In comics and graphic novels news, our Steven has written “a nerdy piece about a comic series” on his blog (his words, not mine!).  It’s all about the long-running Marvel series X-Factor that is coming to an end after 106 episodes.  Omnibus editions are expected early next year.

Ester has the next big thing as far as find-a-book sites go:  bookbrowse.com.  Includes reviews, read-a-likes, interviews, etc.  Don’t click the link, you’ll not surface for hours!  😉

A message from our Marten:

Hey Blog! Zegt het voort! We have the Saul Leiter – Ealy Color back in stock! Seems like it is still not stocked by our suppliers but somehow we got a few copies in -don’t ask me how. They were hot stuff about a year ago, but this photo book is to good to ever go ‘out’ of fashion. Cheerio!

A message from me:  you’ll find it at ABC Amsterdam.  We can have the book sent to ABC The Hague for you, though!

And finally, a few images:  first of all, a pedestrian conundrum on the Amsterdam Spui as spotted by our Shirley, AT5 mentions our window advertising Tim van der Vliet’s book signing of Spiritual Awakening at the end of the month, and illustrater Floor de Goede (Flo) tweeted his work on our window to showcase Greg Shapiro’s book launch of How to be Orange this weekend.
