READING: Minstens een derde van de mensen die we kennen is introvert. Dat zijn diegenen die de voorkeur geven aan luisteren boven praten; die nieuwe dingen uitvinden en creëren maar liever niet hun eigen ideeën pitchen. Introverte mensen hebben het moeilijk in een concurrentiemaatschappij waarin extraversie als de norm beschouwd wordt. Stil behelst een vurig pleidooi vóór introversie, gebaseerd op grondig onderzoek en uit het leven gegrepen verhalen van echte mensen onder wie de auteur zelf. Susan Cain laat zien hoe introverten in onze maatschappij stelselmatig onderschat worden en toont haarscherp de voordelen aan van stil zijn in een wereld vol lawaai.

READING: The book that started the Quiet Revolution At least one-third of the people we know are introverts. They are the ones who prefer listening to speaking; who innovate and create but dislike self-promotion; who favor working on their own over working in teams. It is to introverts—Rosa Parks, Chopin, Dr. Seuss, Steve Wozniak—that we owe many of the great contributions to society. In Quiet, Susan Cain argues that we dramatically undervalue introverts and shows how much we lose in doing so. She charts the rise of the Extrovert Ideal throughout the twentieth century and explores how deeply it has come to permeate our culture. She also introduces us to successful introverts—from a witty, high-octane public speaker who recharges in solitude after his talks, to a record-breaking salesman who quietly taps into the power of questions. Passionately argued, superbly researched, and filled with indelible stories of real people, Quiet has the power to permanently change how we see introverts and, equally important, how they see themselves. Now with Extra Libris material, including a reader’s guide and bonus content

READING: Cassandra Khaw returns with A Song for Quiet, a new standalone Persons Non Grata novella from the world of Hammers on Bone, finalist for the British Fantasy Award and the Locus Award, and which Kameron Hurley called "a long leap into the gory, the weird, and the fantastic." Deacon James is a rambling bluesman straight from Georgia, a black man with troubles that he can't escape, and music that won't let him go. On a train to Arkham, he meets trouble — visions of nightmares, gaping mouths and grasping tendrils, and a madman who calls himself John Persons. According to the stranger, Deacon is carrying a seed in his head, a thing that will destroy the world if he lets it hatch. The mad ravings chase Deacon to his next gig. His saxophone doesn't call up his audience from their seats, it calls up monstrosities from across dimensions. As Deacon flees, chased by horrors and cultists, he stumbles upon a runaway girl, who is trying to escape the destiny awaiting her. Like Deacon, she carries something deep inside her, something twisted and dangerous. Together, they seek to leave Arkham, only to find the Thousand Young lurking in the woods. The song in Deacon’s head is growing stronger, and soon he won’t be able to ignore it any more.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The all-encompassing welfare state that often suffocates citizens is having its final drink in the last-chance saloon. The introduction of the open market as a possible alternative has not been successful either. People are suppressed by the expanding 'system world', damaging their 'life world'. For that reason the welfare state does not need to be reformed, but replaced. The 'participation state' is the natural successor. In that society - which could also be characterised as 'do-it-yourselves' - people themselves prefer to address and resolve issues affecting their own living conditions on a family and community level. This transition in the western world from 'state power' to people power' implies that governments and non-profit organisations must assume a different position. Both parties must exercise restraint so that, at last, the civil society can show its power. Self-management and self-governance become more and more important. This fundamental shift is occurring in a time of peace and quiet and for that reason we can talk about a 'quiet revolution'. A renowned and famous example of what people power is able to achieve, is the phenomena of Family Group Conference. Initially, this way of solving social and personal problems originates from New Zealand, but it is spreading rapidly throughout the western world. In this book, we have included articles from scholars, social workers, researchers, Family Group Conference coordinators and policy makers from different western countries who point out how the successes of Family Group Conferences have developed. It is clear that for the western countries the welfare state cannot be allowed to continue. Family Group Conferencing is not a method, but a value for western societies that make it possible to step forward in order to reach the level of the participation state. Book edited by René Clarijs and Thijs Malmberg (eds.)

READING: This book is about taming the bad inner voice - the one that has the power to overthrow gut instinct and talk us out of new adventures. We are all brimming with inner wisdom, yet we allow negative thoughts to confuse us. We forget how capable and strong we can be.

Love, Fearne xxx - From Sunday Times bestselling author Fearne Cotton, this is the handbook for modern life we all need. Including expert advice, ideas to put into practice, adventures to complete and interviews with everyone from Bryony Gordon to Billie Piper, Quiet seeks out ways to help you tune out the negative backchat that holds you back, so you can hear the positives that will guide you forwards . . . PRAISE FOR FEARNE HAPPY Fearne's account is wonderfully honest and relatable, and it's also extremely comforting and reassuring too - knowing that even someone in her position is still working through certain issues - issues that a lot of us are working through too. (MIND) Fearne Cotton's new book is full of useful advice on how to live a happier life. (Viv Groskop THE POOL) I recommend this for anyone who's looking to find true consistent happiness (Craig David) She's known for her fun and upbeat presenting style, but Fearne Cotton has also been bravely open about her struggle with depression during some darker points in her life. . . In our busy 2017 lives that are constantly fuelled by Instagram envy, bad Tinder dates and increasingly outrageous politicians, it's nice to go over the basics of simply being happy. (OK!)

READING: African American culture is often considered expressive, dramatic, and even defiant. In The Sovereignty of Quiet, Kevin Quashie explores quiet as a different kind of expressiveness, one which characterizes a person’s desires, ambitions, hungers, vulnerabilities, and fears. Quiet is a metaphor for the inner life, and as such, enables a more nuanced understanding of black culture. The book revisits such iconic moments as Tommie Smith and John Carlos’s protest at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics and Elizabeth Alexander’s reading at the 2009 inauguration of Barack Obama. Quashie also examines such landmark texts as Gwendolyn Brooks’s Maud Martha, James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time, and Toni Morrison’s Sula to move beyond the emphasis on resistance, and to suggest that concepts like surrender, dreaming, and waiting can remind us of the wealth of black humanity.

READING: At a time when Canadian governments are encouraging the dispersion of immigrants throughout the provinces in an attempt to reduce clustering in large metropolitan areas, studies of immigration outside urban centres are rare - and studies of immigrant youth even rarer. In Getting Used to the Quiet, Stacey Wilson-Forsberg looks at the integration experiences of immigrant adolescents in one small city and one rural town in New Brunswick's St John River Valley where the youths find no earlier immigrant communities with shared cultural backgrounds. Emphasizing themes including social capital, social networks, and citizen engagement, Wilson-Forsberg highlights the teens' gradual involvement in their new communities as they confront the challenges of dealing with an unfamiliar environment, learning a new language, and reaching out to their New Brunswick-born peers. In-depth interviews with over thirty teens give readers new insights into the integration process. Focusing on a crucial and underexplored area of immigration studies, Getting Used to the Quiet is a valuable resource for understanding the ways in which newcomers join unfamiliar communities and how the communities, in turn, respond to their presence.

READING: Stopping the constant "chatter" of the mind — is it possible in today's world? People have so much to juggle, schedule, discuss, and think about, how can they slow it all down? Won't they miss out? In fact, John Selby points out that our nation's thinkaholic ways result in such detrimental effects as high stress, insomnia, anxiety attacks, and negative, self-critical attitudes. In Quiet Your Mind, he offers an easy-to-follow mind-management process to help people let go of stressful mental habits and enter a more heart-centered, intuitive, and peaceful engagement with everyday life. Based on solid scientific research yet presented in a very approachable tone, the techniques here allow people to quiet over-busy thoughts and prevent fear-based emotions so that they can be truly refreshed, spontaneous, and engaged with each new moment.

READING: Bernie Gunther returns to trail a serial killer in 1950's Buenos Aires When he introduced Bernie Gunther in the original Berlin Noir trilogy, Philip Kerr immediately established himself as a thriller writer on par with Raymond Chandler. His new Bernie Gunther novels have won him comparisons with Alan Furst, John le Carré, and Graham Greene. A Quiet Flame finds Gunther in Argentina, circa 1950, where he- falsely accused of Nazi war crimes-has been offered a new life and a clean passport by the Perón government. But the tough, fast-talking detective doesn't have the luxury of laying low when a serial killer- whose crimes may reach back to Berlin before the war-is mutilating young girls. Taut, gritty, and loaded with evocative historical detail, A Quiet Flame is among Kerr's best work yet.
