The book goes out to the winner of Home Sweet Home sweeps. I've read others by this author but actually not this one - and I decided not to read an English translation of a Finnish book at the moment. Well, I hope it turns out to be the kind of book that the winner enjoys anyway :)

Thanks a lot for the book sakirmo! Haven't read many books from Finnish authors, so I'm very curious.
Have a great 2017!


Really enjoyed this book!

The book is travelling to the winner of the "Authors from unusual countries" sweepstake. I hope Finland is exotic enough :). Congratulations and enough the read!

This book arrived today with 2 others from other BCers.......its looking a lot like I am the lucky winner of the Authors from unusual countries sweepstakes - January 2018.

Thank you so much for sending to me sedna5213. I'm not sure I've read anything Finnish before!
Thank you also sakirmo for organisiing the Sweeps.
Who knows, maybe this will be the year I manage to complete the 666 - an around the world reading challenge.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of.

**** Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option. ****

Loving this book so far - found it last week walking my dog at Mount Edgcumbe and have brought it on holiday with me to Positano in Italy - I probably won’t release it here as I want to finish it before I send it travelling again .... thanks sakirmo ....and Abi
