Extended Profile

Today (Dec 27, 2017 ) is my fourteenth anniversery at Bookcrossing. I have certainly enjoyed all the site has to offer and more. I like doing the challenges, reading the forums, sharing in peoples lives. Because of bookcrossing, I have read books that I would not have picked up otherwise, and read new authors. My hopes for this next year are to share more books, mainly by releasing. I hope to find a way to increase my journal entries, but we all know that is just luck whether or not they make one.

This year I plan to make separate lists of my printed books, e-books and audio books read/listened to.

I usually only register books that I am planning to wild-release at some point, nothing from my PC. The books on my shelf do not really reflect my taste in reading, as some were used just for challenges and never read.

Due to cost-prohibitive s/h, I am sorry to say that at this time I must restrict any trading to the United States. Sorry for any inconvience.

I am registered at

A few facts about me: The books I like most are thrillers, mysteries and horror. Books I DO NOT care for are romances like Harlequins. Chicklit is okay, for the most part. I love chocolate, but not the crispy kind. I drink teas (not herbal or decaf) and hot cocoa. I like doing suduko, logic and crossword puzzles. I have 4 children and several grandkids, ages 13- 26. I have a great guy who I have loved since I was 16. I am currently without pets, a very rare thing for me, but I will aquire some more this year. I live in MI, so warm things always appreciated.

I love my grandkids:Keygan, Tyler, Devin, Tahtiana, Cheyenne and Tayzia
