I love this site, I have become quite addicted to it. I have a tendency to hoard books so this is giving me a real incentive to release some of those books to a new audience and I'm getting the opportunity to read a much wider range of books. You know in reality I have way more books now that I did when I first got into this bookcrossing lark however I now have a big pile of books to be read and the books that have been read are getting released so I guess that is an improvement of sorts!! My ambition is to fit my book stack inside my bookcases instead of spilling out in all directions.

Always happy to trade books so if you see something you'd like to read on my "available" shelf please let me know.
