"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall; nations perish; civilizations grow old and die out; and, after an era of darkness, new races build others."
However I have just found out a friend of mine will be visiting Amsterdam that weekend and he has said he will leave a book for me. I will give him the details and if he can he will drop it in. If not it will hopefully be left somewhere in Amsterdam for one of you to stumble across :)
