(January 2016) I still visit here but just not active anymore)
Update Septermber 3-2012
Sorry I have not been participating on Bookcrossing anymore because shipping prices got so outrageously high here. I can't afford to send books oversees anymore. That was my favourite thing to do. Sending books to my friends in the USA and Canada and everywhere
else. I will try to start releasing books in my own country but I am so behind registering the books i have. Never BC books. I always make a JE! :)
Still love to receive books but it sucks big time that I can't rabcks you back at the moment)
Hi I am Marlene. I have been a member on bookcrossing since 2003 and still a very active one.Love to read and check amazon.com for interesting books.
I hardly read any Dutch books cause I prefer to read English. The first English books I read were True crime ones, but now I read all different genres although I do have lots of true crime books.
I have decided to finally register all of those, even the ones I want to keep, cause this makes it easier for others (and myself) to see which true crime books I already own.
I am willing to trade for books of my wish list.
Please don't contact me for rings or rays. I don't play those anymore :)
My wish list here and address on RABCK.com are always updated .
Other genres besides True crime I like among others are Survival Stories,Disaster Stories, True Life stories, Non Fiction, Biographies, Historical Fiction,Non Genre like Jodi Picoult and good chick lit books.
I am also a gamer. Love to play games on the Nintendo (NES/SNES) and the playstation. I collect Final Fantasy games and strategy guides. Well would love antyhing actually :) RPG games are my favorite.
I have started a book box: Marlene's English book Box 2
Marlene's English book Box #2 (stuck with Kindred-Spirit) :-(
