About My Bookshelf: Hello, if you're new to the website here's Bookcrossing in a Nutshell, for anything else you might want to know there are the FAQs. Feel free to PM me if you're interested in any of my Availables, trades are especially welcome (for wishlist titles as well as wings and release supplies); sometimes I offer a few books on Read It Swap It and BookHopper but these sites are open to UK residents only. If you'd like to send me a Surprise RABCK my address can be found on RABCK.com; to those who have already done so, you know who you are, thank you so much. I don't have a preferred genre although lately I'm reading more historical and biblical fiction; I'm also a fan of Chinese literature and will read anything about tea, my other addiction besides books. I was delighted when one of my wild releases was caught by a fellow bookcrosser, see journal entry 39.
About Me: In my spare time I also like to embroider and crochet. I've been an active bookcrosser since I first discovered the website, my husband is also a member, he's registered as cerimello. We recently bought our first home together, an apartment that we share with our black cat Twinkle (that's her in the pic), she's 11 years old, we adopted her a year ago from the Mayhew Animal Home. I love the bookcrossing community, it's full of passionate, friendly and generous people and I enjoy taking part in reading and sharing activities, the latest are listed below. You can also find me on Ravelry and Twitter.
