Extended Profile

Image hosting by Photobucket. Have a look round my bookshelf, and if you see any AVLs ('Availables') or TBRs ('To Be Reads') that you're interested in let me know.

Eventually, I aim to include items from my Permanent Collection, some of which will be available for locals to borrow, or maybe for bookrings - if you promise to be careful with them and send them home safely!

I was mostly a non-fiction reader, until I joined Bookcrossing, particularly yoga and Buddhism, and although Bookcrossing has encouraged me to broaden my horizons I'm still mostly a non-fiction type of gal.

Thanks to yvi-1 and BrynnSC for your HTML tutorials on your websites!

My Wish List

Many thanks to Cliff for making the Wish List available to BookCrossers.

Normy's A-Z Challenge (Authors previously unread) 2005

Booker Prize Winners


I first started a Bookray (now completed),with the book sent to me by XLonelyGuy, who encouraged me to start a ring:

Eats, Shoots & Leaves - It reached its final Bookray destination in the US, where Dr Brown is planning on passing it on. It's been so exciting tracking the book as it roams around the world!

Started 25th July 2005:

The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold. It's off to Europe, US, Canada. PM me if you want to join - there may still be time!

Started 8th August 2005:

Not on the Label - Felicity Lawrence

Started 8th August 2005. NOW CLOSED.

Virtual Addiction: Help for Netheads, Cyberfreaks and those who love them - David Greenfield

This one's now gone out into the big, wide world (well, it went to a cafe - I wonder if it was an internet cafe?).
