Happy May and welcome to the 7th issue of ‘How Curious!’ ✌️
It’s been a particularly busy and memorable few days. A long weekend celebrating King’s Day in Amsterdam has been followed by the final week in my current role ahead of a short summer move to London. 🎉
I’m excited to be a tourist again. London friends, let’s catch up over the next 2 months! 

Quotes I'm pondering

Book Recommendations
After being leapfrogged in my “To Read Next” column the past few weeks I’ve finally started reading George Orwell’s 1984
Written in 1948, the popular classic is a dystopian prophecy of an all-controlling government. Although I’ve just started it’s extremely promising so far.
I’m mid-way through rating and reviewing the 70ish non-fiction books I’ve read since kickstarting my reading habit and hope to have this full public list complete for the next newsletter. Stay tuned!
