"Read in order to live."

Gustave Flaubert


My wishlist seems to be quite obscure. If you can't find anything to tag me with (or for my birthday, or for HGG/SGG etc.), feel free to send me something else - hints below!!

What makes me tick? Books (obviously), travelling (when I've got the time and money), cocoa, good films, chocolate (any kind), caramel/toffee (my all-time favourite is Bonfire Toffee from England!), muesli bars, nuts, friendship and laughter - oh, and tea. I love "English" tea, green tea (preferably flavoured - so far pomegranate is my favourite - I'm not so keen on just "plain green" tea), rooibush, white tea...

I really envy the creativity of other book crossers and especially appreciate receiving home made gifts, e.g. earrings for pierced ears; sewn "trinkets" (like hearts etc. made of material for hanging on door handles etc.) and so on. I collect book marks and the home made variety is especially welcome - but not everyone is creative (like me): I also wear bought earrings and use bought bookmarks!

I love to exchange, especially books/audiobooks, letters and emails. And of course I am always on the lookout for beautiful book labels, in English or German.

I love having wings (and wing extensions) - and so do my kids: BexX03 and mr_teatime.

My Birthday Buddy is HAMMU (birthday October 4th)

Don't be shy - a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet!

"Books to the ceiling Books to the sky. My pile of books Are a mile high. How I love them! How I need them! I'll have a long beard By the time I read them."

Arnold Lobel

I think a beard is about the LAST thing I need LOL - but you catch my drift :D

My son, who is also a bookcrossing member (mr_teatime) has just left to live and work as a volunteer at a school in South Africa for a year. I am writing a blog about his experiences abroad and our experiences at home. Feel free to take a look at:
