Hi all. First I would like to say that I would read any book and I go through stages of what I like. My favorite fiction author right now is Terry Pratchett. Also lately I have gotten into reading mangas. As for the site there in no way I can list all the books I own. So the books I will list are the ones I have found via bookcrossing or ones I will be giving away.

BC member You_ is my son and any b/c books that I get for him I will be putting in his account.

* My own bookcrossing release challenge: Release a book in every county in Rep. of Ireland. (I may add North Ireland later on) (counties done: Dublin, Kerry, Offaly, Limerick, Cork,West Meath)

* Reading Authors from each country challenge: Read a book by an author from every country in the world. ( countries done: America, England, Japan, Ireland, Scotland, Germany, South Korea, France, Italy, Afghanistan, Canada,Iran, Sweden, Belgian)

* just a note my wish list is a way to keep track of interesting books I come across on this site. I am not asking to read these books via bookcrossing. I just want to read them at some point be it bookcrossing, finding them in a store, given them as a gift or from the library.

WBN tiles that I have given out.
2011: All Quite on the Western front
2012: Good Omens
2013:Judge Dredd: The Dark Judges

You're The Canterbury Tales!

by Geoffrey Chaucer

You are extremely old. Somewhat lyrical in your approach to life,
you prefer that most things are said in rhythm. At the same time, you are known for
using words that the common people would know, rather than speaking in a more
elaborate tongue. This gives you credibility with the working class, who you would
give an equal voice alongside the wealthy or powerful. You like contests, long walks
on the road, and visiting graves.
