How Far Does a Book Travel? At Least to Amsterdam.

Nancy Hendrickson's book in Amsterdam

There used to be a project – it may still exist – of leaving a book in a public place along with a note to pass it along and post where it was found. I’ve never done that but what a cool idea. Something kinda similar happened to me this week.

My friend Fred landed in Amsterdam for a holiday and while popping around the city he went into a coffee house and saw a stack of books. There, buried underneath Birds of Europe and Funshopping Amsterdam was the book I wrote about San Diego. He snapped this shot and texted it over to me. What are the odds that my San Diego book would end up in an Amsterdam coffee house where my good San Diego friend found it?
