Amsterdam Reading List

I like to bring a few novels with me when I travel. It’s the only way I can get through a long flight and I enjoy reading throughout the trip - particularly if the books have something to do with my trip. I couldn’t find any books about Switzerland, so I concentrated on Amsterdam and I picked these three:

Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach
This looks like just the sort of cross between a soap opera and historical fiction that is perfect for a quick read on the plane. In fact with only 288 pages, I'll probably finish it before the end of the flight and I can leave it in the seat pocket.

My 'Dam Life: Three Years in Holland by Sean Condon
I am really looking forward to reading this one. It’s a (mostly) true account of an Australian who moves to Amsterdam written in the style of Bill Bryson. And though humerous, it should give a pretty decent picture of what it’s like to live in Amsterdam.

Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
How could I not read this before going to the Anne Frank House? Even though I saw the movie, and I’m familiar with the play, I never read the original diary. This edition contains more of her writing than the originally published diary. So, it’s about time I read this classic.
