The Wilderness Meets L.C. Tyler

My copy of Len's Ten Little Herrings is quite the world traveler. It started in England, flew to Texas, and is now in the wilds of Zion National Park in Utah. I can't help but wonder where all our books have traveled. Has anyone seen his/her books some unexpected place?

A great picture, which I shall treasure! I've previously had a photo of The Herring Seller's Apprentice being read in Malaysia. Sadly the most exotic location I can remember reading an MNW novel was when I took Tim's Dog of the North to the beach in Devon ...

Both 'Dog of the North' and 'Shock and Awe' have been to Afghanistan. Actually, 'Shock and Awe' will be very well travelled, as David donated some copies to the British Military Library system.

I shot an a TV commercial last week in Cape town. The location was a bookshop, which had the excellent taste to stock Sleepwalker's Introduction to Flight.
Naturally, I arranged for the book to appear rather prominently on the shelves in the background of the shot. Not a star but certainly a featured extra.
