Extended Profile

I have always been an avid reader and love to become engrossed in a good story. Once I start a good book I want to keep on reading until I have finished it.

I heard about Bookcrossing from my sister, starrdust, joined and was immediately hooked. I love participating in many of the release challenges, and have "met" so many nice people here.

My shelf does not necessarily reflect my reading preferences. Some books I have acquired solely for the purpose of release challenges.

I work as an office administrator and have a round trip commute of 2 hours per day. However, I feel fortunate to be able to take vacation and additional time off in the summer to catch up on my reading!

Currently reading: The Revolving Door of Life by Alexander McCall Smith
