If you click on the image added to this release entry, you can see the exclusive book label made for the books from the Leeuwarden City Book Rescue 2014. However the label contains the same text as underneath this text alinea, it is worth to have a look at I think. It's fun and tells a story, for those who can not read well.

Here is more information about the book's most recent history:
HARLINGERSTREETROAD, LEEUWARDEN CITY, FRISIA, HOLLAND, SUMMER 2014
Good Morning or Good Afternoon or Good evening!,
Here is some extra information on this book!
This book is one of many books from a skip, located some time in the Summer of 2014 outside a house at the Harlingerstreetroad, in the city of Leeuwarden.
The books where 'leftovers' from the house clearing after the death of an elderly couple of man and wife. The man had been a teacher at the local Gymnasium for many years.
He long predeceased his wife. She died in 2014.
Apparently the books in the skip now seemed not 'fit' for sale at second hand store's or antiquarian bookshops?!
Luckily most books have been saved by passers by, neighbours, BookCrossers and others.
I spent some hours in and near the skip to save books and
managed to save about 600 books for BookCrossing!
Thanks to Miekster for the courtesy of using the pictures.

Taken home by me, because I really fancy a good thriller or detective story. Apart from that I'm a big fan of Ken Follett.

This one I had not yet read, and now I have the opportunity. I intended to take this book with me to Oxford, but I won't be able to read it before I leave, so this one stays with me for a while.

Short contents:
"Success came easily to Chad Carstairs. Then, without warning evil invaded his pleasure-filled life... a chilling evil that sent him racing from an elegant English country estate to the sleazy clubs of London's West End, from the drug-ridden streets of Marseilles to a farmhouse on the desolate coast of Wales. Driven by revenge, he was a man willing to risk his fortune, his future, even his life in a desperate gambit to outwit the world's deadliest organization at its own game and finger the powerful men behind... The Big Needle."

At this point in time I'm having a serious reading dip and I can't seem to get any substantial reading done. My head just won't cooperate.
That is not this books fault, or of it's new reader's, so this book will travel on unread. Maybe I'll get a second chance, maybe not.

Arrived earlier this week. Thanks for sending Boekentrol!
Well, this is certainly different from what I guessed from the first page haha. I don't think it is something I would usually read, but it's good to try new things. :)
