Total number of 1001 books read so far in 2013;
***My friends list has been updated to include everyone I have sent something to and all the kind bookcrossers out there who have sent me a book or any other fabulous gift. My thanks and gratitude to you all.***
Hi everyone and thanks for checking out my shelf. I'm Danielle, I'm now 28 and have been bookcrossing for nearly 5 years, hence my screen-name. I've had a love of books since I could read and bug everyone with my habit, reading instead of listening and talking almost constantly about my current book. I have my own house now and even have my own little library. My better half found an article about book crossing in the newspaper and I promptly signed up and find myself getting more and more addicted every day. I love bookmarks too, and have a large collection, now from around the world. I love anything colourful too so have a rather bright kitchen.
The few wild releases I have made have me checking every few days for journals, but alas not much luck so far but I'm not giving up hope.
I took part in World Book Night 2011 and distributed my chosen book, 'Love in the Time of Cholera', around my local city centre. No catches yet but I did see several very interested people take this wonderful book home.
I am willing to exchange and I do so often, if there's anything that catches your eye just PM me and we'll sort something out.
At the moment I am trying ferociously to read all possible books of the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die (all 3 editions). I am currently standing at around 370ut I am making slow and steady progress.
I am participating in soffitta1's UK and EU 1001 VBB's so a lot of my 1001 library books are waiting in those for new readers.
1001 Library Books available from me (just PM me if you're interested)

That's about it for now, can't really think of much else to say. If there are any questions regarding my available list and a book you would like just PM me, and I will most probably send it along, there's nothing better than sharing with fellow book crossers.
And to all you avid book readers out there, happy reading.
