I am middle-aged mom of two, a psychiatric nurse and ... I love books!

I love cozy mysteries, travel stories and books about food (not cookbooks as such) and modern writers like Anne Tyler, Paul Auster, Julia Glass etc, but I also love a good classic!
I read both in Finnish and English.

Most of the books in my wishlist are in English, but I would be as happy to get the same book in Finnish :) I update my wishlist very often.

Here you can find the books I read 2007 (113 books), 2008 (131 books), 2009 (128 books), 2010 (119 books), 2011 (147 books), 2012 (130 books) and 2013 (160 books).

And here's some photos of my everyday life:

Here's what else I like:
* CHOCOLATE , especially Cadbury,Hersheys, or some local companies. Not "multinationals" like Nestle, I can get them here. I love unusual taste and chocolates with filling rather than plain. I'd love to try chocolate with pineapple, for example. And I love Irish cream truffle too!
* I love the combination of sweet and savory, like chocolate covered prezels or something like that.
* I also love to try new food, cookies, drinks etc.

* I love to cross-stitch and quilting, usually just don't have enough time
* Notebooks, nice good pens, decorative tapes etc are always nice surprise too, and I enjoy hand-creams, body butters and such, the small sample packets are just fine. And I love woollen or cotton socks, size 40 / 6 uk/8,5 us
* We are getting the Nescafe Dolce Gusto - coffee machine for X-mas, so if you have extra coffee capsules for it (for ex. type you didn't like after all), I'd be happy to try!

* If someone has The Muppet Show - stuff (used) they don't need - especially Fozzie bear - I would be willing to swap it to something else (like books, chocolate, you name it!) because my daughter is a big fan and we don't have much of those here in Finland. Just p.m. me!

I'm on
