From the cover:
With his characteristic warmth, inventiveness and brilliant wit, Alexander McCall Smith gives us more of the gloriously entertaining comings and goings at 44 Scotland Street, the Edinburgh townhouse.

Six-year-old prodigy Bertie perseveres in his heroic struggle for truth and balanced good sense against his insufferable mother and her crony, the psychotherapist Dr Fairbairn, going as far as to make a short-lived bid for freedom on a trip to Paris with the Edinburgh youth orchestra. Domenica sets off on an anthropological odyssey with pirates in the Malacca Straits, while Pat attracts several handsome admirers, including a toothsome suitor named Wolf. And Big Lou, eternal source of coffee and good advice to her friends, has love, heartbreak and erstwhile boyfriend Eddie's misdemeanours on her own mind.

I bought it in a second-hand bookshop in Kielce (Poland). I didn't read any of 44 Scotland Street series, but i really liked it. Now I'm going to re-read it and release :)

Not a typical choice of mine but I enjoyed it greatly nonetheless. A warm and funny story of a group of people - residents of 44 Scotland Street, Edinburgh. I haven't read other books in the series but will definitely do if I get a chance (looking forward to seeing little Bertie gains some freedom from his controlling mother!). My only "but" concerns Domenica's part as I found it a little bit disappointing in the end (a pirate CD factory??? Oh, come on!). Still, highly recommended.

Now, the book will be released for the BookCrossing Games - event: Rowing /release a book registered by someone else/

Planning to release it at Reggaeland Festival (see the pic!)

Congratulations! If you read this, then you have probably found one of my released books. It is yours now and you can do with it as you please (keep it, read it or/and pass it on). Would be nice though if you left a journal entry here (either anonymously or as a new BC member - it's really up to you). Many thanks!

Gratulacje! Jeśli to czytasz, to znaczy, że prawdopodobnie znalazłeś/łaś jedną z uwolnionych przeze mnie książek. Teraz jest Twoja i możesz z nią zrobić, co zechcesz (zatrzymać, przeczytać lub/i podać dalej). Byłoby jednak miło, gdybyś zostawił/a wpis w powyższym dzienniku (anonimowo lub jako nowy członek portalu bookcrossing.com). Wielkie dzięki!

Złapana, przyjechała z Nami z Reegelandu do Bydgoszczy. Mój angielski jest słaby, ale postaram się ją szybko przeczytać i zostawić na Woodstocku.:))
