This book is off on an adventure to the UK - to the winner of the "Golden Spurtle Sweepstakes" - a fun BookCrossing game.

It is also part of another BookCrossing fun thing - the Places Challenge - where a word in the title or author's name has to be a place name somewhere in the world. In this case "Player" is a community in Oklahoma, USA.

Please do check in from time to time little book on your ongoing trip - a journal note will do the trick!

***Please Note***
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. ****
