The picture is taken in San Francisco, in August 2012.

I got married on October 26th, 2013! :)

List of all the books I've read!

Challenges I'm Taking Part In:
50 Books by Writers of Color Challenge
Read a book from every country

At the moment, I'm trying to reduce the number of books I own, so feel free to ask for any book that's marked available.

About me and my BookCrossing philosophy:
I register both books in my permanent collection, and those I intend to release. I register books before I read them, in order to keep track of what I have, and my philosophy is that even though I want to keep a book in my PC for now, I might feel differently in 5 years time. If you receive a book from me, feel free to add it to your personal collection, unless we specifically agreed otherwise.

The types of books I love to read are: nonfiction books about feminism, human rights, anti-racism, anti-oppression in general, lesbian books, books from around the world and by people of color (see challenges higher up on my profile), chick lit, graphic novels, basically anything that sounds interesting. :)

I always try to read books in the language the were written, if that's possible. 95% of the books I read are in English, but I also read books in Finnish, Swedish, German, Spanish and French. I hope that I'll have a chance to read more foreign language books through bookcrossing.

How I Rate My Books

10* Excellent. This book has impacted me deeply and belongs to my Crown Jewels.
9* Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10.
8* Good, solid book that I would recommend to kindred spirits.
7* Good book, with something I like and something I dislike.
6* The book is OK, but just not my cup of tea.
5-4* I did not appreciate much. Maybe somebody else would like this.
3-2* In my opinion, a disaster.
1* A general disaster.
