Request List


Hostel book swaps are an ocean of German language Mills and Boons, too heavily leaved for any self-respecting community. Therefore, should luggage space permit, please join me on my overland journey to the East with two books from the following list; it remains wholly the responsibility of the supplier to ensure they’re not banned by the various dictatorships/autocracies I’ll be visiting along the way!
