About me


First of thank you for visiting my blog.

My name is Jasper and currently living in the Netherlands. I have a Bsc. in Applied Sciences and work as a laboratory technician in a molecular biology lab. I have always been a huge fan of reading and in August of 2011 I had the opportunity to make even more from my hobby and that was starting to write reviews.

I cannot stress this enough that I really want to thank everyone who takes time to read my reviews and of course for all the authors and publishers of whom I have received books from reviews! Thank you!

And I recently got this great tattoo from the people of Bunker Tattoo in Breda. They did some amazing work. "Never stop chasing your dreams"! 

My other hobbies besides reading (yes I do have them) include among others:
- gardening
- playing videogames
- warhammer fantasy and 40k
- sports (running, swimming and biking)

If you specifically have a question for me or a review request you can either send me an email at:  thebookplank[at]gmail[dot]com or contact me through twitter: @thebookplank or contact me at goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/thebookplank

General info update as off august 2013
Some people might say that I give only positive reviews and that is mostly because I only read the books that I can get “into”, if a book just proves to be a struggle to get through I will likely abandon it, I will give it a second attempt but if it still isn’t working ill put it aside, sorry if this might happen (it hasn’t happened that much though), but there is just so much to read and time is proving to be the limiting factor!

Also there might be some spelling errors in my reviews, I try to get them as clean as possible but with English being my second language (I’m Dutch born), some might still slip in. sorry about that.

The Book Plank now has been running on its own feet for about two months and want to give a huge shout-out to all the people who have been giving me positive feedback, saying that I write thoughtful reviews and such. I have to give the bigger thanks to you for taking the time reading my reviews and for everyone who has been involved in sending books, either the authors or publishers! It wouldn’t be possible without you. With the reviews now going live every few days or so, I have been investing time in doing more with my blog like: author interviews (they have been a hit), guest posts and blog tours (first will be up soon). Maybe expanding it more when it is all going according to plan! Hoping to do giveaways in the near future.
