I haven't created these glorious book birds. They just happened to fly by on the internet, thanks to Bronia Sawyer: www.broniasawyer.co.uk/---/4547930967

Hello! I had a ton more info up like the many bookrays/rings I was in but it all was discombobulated from my virus scanner messing up links I had saved in an e-mail. Bookcrosser for life. I try to keep my wishlist up to date, as I love trades and swaps within the US (from my available list). Thank you to everyone supporting my reading habit over the years. :D

If you are interested in any books on my available list in exchange for a couple dollars shipping, PLEASE let me know!
