I joined bookcrossing originally back in 2013 but only really started in earnest in January 2017 when I realised my bookshelves needed thinning out. This has backfired somewhat because I've caught myself purchasing second-hand copies purely to bookcross
and now have more books than ever!
I enjoy reading historical fiction, murder mysteries, fantasy and mythology although I'm happy to give most genres a go because there are some nice surprises out there! Favourite authors include Bernard Cornwell, Agatha Christie and Terry Pratchett.
I'm a member of Goodreads where I concentrate my efforts on completing various reading challenges. So far I have finished an A-Z of Authors, An A-Z of one word titles and Around the World in 80 books.
I try to read all the books I bookcross so my shelves should give a good indication of my preferences although I have received a large box of children's books for bookcrossing which I won't be reading!
Feel free to PM me if you see something of interest on my available shelf - I am happy to swap books.
I work with animals and have a mad cocker spaniel a budgie and a couple of Syrian hamsters. My hobbies include calligraphy so I am interested in manuscripts and historical documents.
