There's a...

BOOKWORM*IN*US*ALL
!!! ; ) And if you haven't found yours yet, you've certainly come to the right place !!! ; D

"Without books the development of civilization would have been impossible. They are the engines of change, windows on the world, "Lighthouses" as the poet said "erected in the sea of time." They are companions, teachers, magicians, bankers of the treasures of the mind, Books are humanity in print." ~ Arthur Schopenhauer

I LOVE Bookcrossing, and its Wild Releasing, and Wishlist Granting, so my bookshelf does not necessarily reflect my personal taste in reading. While I may not necessarily read certain books sent to me, I very much appreciate them, and always Journal them, and Keep Them Moving!!! ; )

bookcrossing...noun...the practice of leaving a book in a public place to be picked up and read by others, who then do likewise. (added to the Concise Oxford English Dictionary in August 2004)

"Literature is my Utopia. Here I am not disenfranchised. No barrier of the senses shuts me out from the sweet, gracious discourses of my book friends. They talk to me without embarrassment or awkwardness." ~ Helen Keller



HELLO and HAPPY 2017 FRIENDS and FELLOW BOOKCROSSERS!!! : )


BOOKCROSSING IS AWESOME!!! : ) I LOVE IT!!! : )


Read and Release at BookCrossing.com...The Karma of Literature



TO THE FINDER OF THIS BOOK:

HELLO...WELCOME to BOOKCROSSING...and CONGRATULATIONS!


You have not only found yourself a good book, but a whole community of booklovers dedicated to sharing books with each other and the world at large. I hope you'll stick around a bit and get to know BOOKCROSSING http://www.bookcrossing.com/about. Maybe you'll even decide to make a journal entry on this book, possibly listing me...BOOKWORMINUSALL...as the one who referred you. We want to make the whole world a library! You may choose to remain anonymous or to join (it's free!). Feel free to read and keep this book, or to pass it on to a friend, or even set it free "in the wild" for someone else to find as you did. If you do choose to join and journal, then you can watch the book as it travels - you'll be alerted by email each time someone makes another journal entry. It's all confidential (you're known only by your screen name and no one is ever given your email address), it's fun, it's free, and it's spam-free...all thanks to our dedicated totally AWESOME BOOKCROSSING MANAGEMENT http://www.bookcrossing.com/management, and SUPPORT TEAMS!!! OH, and don't forget...you can even register and release your own books by ordering special Bookplate (Label) designs from the BookCrossing Supply Store, and/or...you can print your own to get started right away by downloading some free ones from one of the two links here until your order arrives. Scroll down to "Free Downloadable Label Files" on this page to print on self adhesive labels you purchase http://www.bookcrossing.com/labels, or open this PDF File to print on plain paper and use a glue stick or tape. www.bookcrossing.com/---/BookCrossing-BookMarks.pdf



HAPPY READING!!! : )



THANK YOU for visiting my BookShelf Page...which is ALLways...A WORK IN PROGRESS!!! : )

Just want you to know...NOT ALL of the books listed in my "All Books, To Be Read, Available, Reserved, and Traveling" categories, reflect my personal taste in reading...NOR have I had the opportunity to register ALL of my books!!!

I LOVE reading CHILDREN'S BOOKS, and then donating them to Children!!! ; )

Other books I LOVE include those about Animals, Art, Archaeology, Architecture, Classic Cars, Crafting, Cuisine, Fauna, Fiber Arts, Geography, Haiku, History, Horticulture, Medicine, Museums, Music, Nature, Poetry, Philosophy, Photography, Plants, Science, Theology, Topiary, Quilting, and books about other Countries, Cultures, and Places I can "Travel" to just by reading them...especially those with MAPS, or fold out maps...which I have found I simply aDORE!!! ; ) New or used Greeting Cards...Stamps and Postcards, whether they are posted or not...and Bookmarks...are always a JOY, as well. ; )

I have NO desire to read Romance Novels, and yet it is a Historical Romance Novel that first introduced me to BOOKCROSSING!!! : ) Click here

FYI...While I occasionally do read an Action or Historical Romance Novel, I no longer read the Mystery/Thriller/Suspense/Crime Drama genres I use to so enjoy, and I NEVer cared for Horror or Sci-Fi, all of which are generally Wild Released into the BookCrossing "World Library" by my participation in various Bookcrossing Release Challenges...or sent to someone as a RABCK. ; )


My only WISH LIST...


PEACE ON EARTH and to be able to continue to do my part to help Bookcrossing MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD A LIBRARY!!! Toward that goal...I am always in need of Postage for RABCKs and BC Bookplates/Bags, etc., which in turn...helps keep the site alive and well. ; ) With BC Gift Certificates now available...it even cuts down on postage costs for the "Giver". Many thanks to ALL of you for your generosity and RABCKs!!! : D

Okay...ONLY because some of you kind BC Friends have wondered what I enjoy besides the BC Supplies, etc., I've already mentioned above with the Book Genres I love (I don't like asking for things, have never given to receive, but don't want to take your JOY of giving away either)...in addition to SURPRISES, I also love Sewing, Quilting, Crafting of all kinds, Drawing, Stickers, Handmade items, BOOKWORM related items, Angels, Hummingbirds and other Birds, Roses and other Flowers, Espresso Roast Ground Coffee, and Matcha Green Tea Powder. ; ) I do enjoy Caramels & Butterscotch, but Chocolate & Sweets don't do well via mail in our Arizona heat, which is why I'm rarely able to send any your way either...so sorry. Please don't send anything with fragrance of any kind due to my chemical sensitivities. Thank you so very much!!! ; )


IN APPRECIATION!!! : )

FIRST...and...FOREMOST...THANK YOU to the ENTIRE BC STAFF!!! : )
WITHOUT THEM THIS BOOKSHELF WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE!!! : )
