My Very First Release


Thank you to Fulljoy321 for this lovely journal dated 26th November 2010 by "anonymous finder"


I love this journal on house-elfdobby's book, "Light as a Feather" by "anonymous finder" dated sat, jan17, 2009



I've always read ... I love reading and read anything I can get my hands on......though not everything on my shelf reflects my reading taste.... sometimes surprising things have happened and I have ended up liking something that I never would have thought to have read in the first place. I love the whole idea of bookcrossing and hope that more people out there will embrace the it, for the whole spirit of bookcrossing is simply wonderful! ....



I am a member of the OZ VBB which was started by freelunch then run by L1nda and now by tantan who does a wonderful job. The OZVBB is a OZ virtual book box and it is great way of sharing books over here in Australia. (Thank you to all who participate. New members are always welcome.)


I am also a member of the Bookcrossing Australia group on Library Thing where we talk about what we read from time to time. New members are always welcome there too ..... ☺
