The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
4 journalers for this copy...
In the process, I checked the wish lists of some of my other Dutch BookCrossing favorites, and found this one on owlet's, so I'll probably be reading it on the plane so I can pass it on :) (that's always a good way to determine what books I'll read on a trip)
Pictured: a windmill/molle from near the town in Friesland, The Netherlands where my father grew up. I actually took that picture a million years ago on a disc camera!
If you are new to BookCrossing and find this book and this site; welcome! Enjoy the site, the book and hopefully the BookCrossing community. I hope you'll join BookCrossing (doesn't cost anything to join!) and if you do, please consider using any previous reader of this book, or me, Antof9, as the member who referred you. If you are an old hand at BookCrossing, thanks for picking up the book! Either way, I hope you'll journal so all the previous and future readers can track this book's journey. Thanks, and Happy Crossing!
Edit April 17, 2010: I did finally read this book, and my journal entry on it is here!
I'm now going to journal all the other wonderful books Antof9 brought all the way from the states, but first let me say I really enjoyed our afternoon out!
p.s. did you manage to read it, Antof? If yes, what did you think about it?
Really, I loved the style, I could actually _hear_ Precious talking. The characters are very likable and the stories easy to follow. It's the first book of the series, so it's more or less an introduction of the main characters and their history; mainly the protagonist, Mma Ramotswe, who starts the first ladies agency in Botswana, hires a secretary and takes up her first cases.
Thank you again, antof9, three years later :-)
