Since several readers asked for the sequel, it's now also starting as international bookring. :o)
Volume 1: "A time of gifts" by Patrick Leigh Fermorhttp://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8218751
Volume 2: "Between the Woods and the Water"http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11064192
Excerpts from the JE:
"Like a tramp, a pilgrim, or a wandering scholar", an eighteen-year-old boy set out, one wet December day in 1933, to walk to Constantinople. This book covers his journey as far as Hungary." The second book continues the voyage to Constantinople.
"More than just a Super-travel-book... it is a reminder that the English language is still a superb instrument in the hands of a writer who has a virtuoso skill with words, a robust aesthetic passion, an indomitable curiosity about people and places, and a rapturous historical imagination" (Philip Toynbee in The Observer)
This book (the first volume) (if not this copy) is also a special book for me; it was gifted to me by a traveller while I was travelling, was a wonderful read, and I would love to share it with you.
I would love the book to travel as far as possible. Please state your postal preference, so I can group the participants for countries if possible.
Please also write me a PM if you want to join, so I won't miss your entry! :o)
