My previous bc name was Ekranda, as of Feb 2013 it has been changed :0)
I am a 1001 books to read before you die reader...however recently I have been drawn off the list by lots of other exciting authors which has really slowed down my progress!!
I have spoken to the pub landlady who enjoys a good book and she has agreed for me to take over a bookcase by the bar at The crown in Finglesham, (near Deal, Kent). This can be found under the bc id :TheCrownOBCZ
I have just started a small zone off at Mama Feel Goods Cafe in Bekesbourne, on the outskirts of Canterbury- this is essentially a magazine rack and only holds a few books but I dropped off the first 6 last night and hope that it will prove popular! After speaking to the owner it turns out that she’s keeping the books stored in her office whilst they make some changes to layout. If you pop in and can’t see any books - try asking about them!!
There may also be a little free library eventually in the pub garden with a shelf for children's books so watch this space :0). I’ve been showing pictures of little free libraries to the pub landlady!!
By the way I spotted an area with free books in the Marlowe Arcade in Canterbury - this could be a great place for releasing children’s books. Keep your eyes peeled!
I have 3 cats and 2 labradors that keep me entertained and never say no to a little treat. Bookcrossing items are useful for my zone and personal bookcrossing. I enjoy dark chocolate and milk chocolate with or without mint or ginger and spices and prefer it to be fair trade if possible. I enjoy sweeties like fruit jellies, cola cubes and love shiny things. Oh!, and I have a soft spot for cows :0)
