I read books (and place a review here afterwards) in the following categories Mystery/Detective, British literature (mostly older books, from Gutenberg.org), Adventure, some Dutch lieterature and more.

My top favorite writers are John Galsworthy, Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens, but among my five-star reviews you will also find (debuts of) contemporary writers. A recent example is Gillian Flynn. I mostly read ebooks.

Bear Brownie the Life of a Bear - H. P. Robinson Written for young readers, I suppose, but at least equally suited for adults. This is the autobiography of a bear, during the first two years of his life. It is worth reading. The bear who tells his life-story starts as a small cub, and while growing up tells the reader how bears live. Also some important events take place in his life. I am not certain if the father-bear stays with a bear family, as in the book. Nevertheless I give it five stars. I enjoyed it tremendously during a rainy weekend.
