Please check contact me before sending any packages to insure the correct address. Thanks.

PLEASE NOTE: While I will always consider a trade, I find requests for books without offer of trade or postage extremely rude and, therefore, will ignore them.

My bookshelf is in no way a reflection of my taste in books. In fact, though a great number of books on my shelf are mystery/thrillers and romances, those are genres I very rarely (or in the case of romances -- never) read.

Mine is a animal-friendly home, so any books of mine may be lightly dusted with cat or dog hairs. Also of note: my husband smokes and though I keep the books in the bedroom where he doesn't smoke and we have a very good air filter, any books coming from me may have a faint cigarette odor.

As of February 10th I have read 6 books this year. I read 49 in 2014, 55 in 2013, 68 in 2012, 54 in 2011, 44 in 2010, 78 in 2009, 74 in 2008, 99 in 2007, 65 in 2006, 95 in 2005, and 77 in 2004. For those interested, the lists for each year can be found on my Goodreads profile.

Personal challenge:I've mailed a book to every one of the US states and am now working on personally wild releasing one in each state as well. I've done 34 so far: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Louisana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma,Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming. I've also released in Washington D.C. and two other countries: Mexico and Canada!

Some of my favorite journal entries on wild releases
