Literature at your fingertips

BoekWijzer app – our guide to Dutch literature

Books, books and more books. Our BoekWijzer app is the Dutch literary app. Boekwijzer delivers up-to-date information about every title available in the Netherlands to your mobile or tablet. We give you access to the entire catalogue of Dutch literature. And it’s pocket-size! So with BoekWijzer you have a wealth of literary information at your fingertips. What’s more, you can order books via the app as well. Our Boekwijzer app also brings you the latest news and articles from the Dutch newspaper ‘De Volkskrant‘ and the literary website ‘Literary Nederland‘. And we publish interesting literary articles in the Boekwijzer blogs almost every week!

A mobile bookshop

Our Boekwijzer app gives you access to a database of more than 630,000 books! But with so much content, users can sometimes find it tricky to find what interests them. For this reason, we make a pre-selection of interesting titles to make the app as user-friendly as possible. Using information from Bol.com we provide an overview of their ‘Best sellers’, ‘Best rated’ books and ‘Recent releases’. If you then click on an item in the list, you will see more information about that  title. And if you want to order a book directly via the app, that’s easy to do with a single click.

Search and find

You can use the search function to search through the entire assortment of available titles. And it doesn’t matter if you are unsure how to write an author’s name (for example, Mullisch or Mulish?). That is to say we have designed BoekWijzer to handle common spelling mistakes.

Furthermore, you can use a wildcard “*” (star) when searching:

– pari* will find “paris” as well as “parijs”
– colo*r will find “color” as well as “colour”
