Boekentips de laatste van dit jaar

Yule Tide. In 2018 zijn er weinig boekentips voorgeschoteld en één van de voornemens voor 2019 is dit veelvuldiger te doen.

Elke week tracht de redactie van Krapuul je 5 boekentips voor te schotelen. Tips die verband houden met artikelen die in de de voorafgaande week gepubliceerd zijn of gewoon een boek dat we de moeite waard vinden om als leestip aan te bieden.

De rubriek “BOEKENTIPS” is samen met de advertenties in de rechterkolom onderdeel van ons inkomstenmodel. Wij moeten inkomsten verwerven om de hoge kosten van hosting, noodzakelijk vanwege de aanhoudende aanvallen op de website, te kunnen bekostigen.

Als jij op één van de door ons aangeboden linken naar klikt en je koopt het of willekeurig elk ander product, dan ontvangen wij naar gelang het product een bescheiden commissie.

Dus draag je ons een warm hart toe klik en koop 😉

Tirado, the Yule Lads are brought to life with all new, all original illustrations by Danya Esposito. Soon to be a holiday classic…

On the Winter-Solstice. a Descriptive Poem
Auteur: Mr Colvill

The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.Western literary study flows out of eighteenth-century works by Alexander Pope, Daniel Defoe, Henry Fielding, Frances Burney, Denis Diderot, Johann Gottfried Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and others. Experience the birth of the modern novel, or compare the development of language using dictionaries and grammar discourses.
