For sweeps, tags or RABCK's books from my wishlist or any book you send me would be very welcome. I like mystery, thriller, crime, sci-fi, fantasy and graphic novels. A little bit of chick-lit and romance but not horror. I do like Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Anne Rice but it shouldn't be too scary. Any book on myths, tales or legends from your country would also be great. BC labels/bookplates or used postage stamps are also appreciated.

I'm collecting a copy of the book A Little Princess* by Frances Hodgson Burnett in different languages (other than English). I'd be thrilled if you could help me with this.
*now have Finnish, Polish editions

I also collect stamps so if it doesn't cost you more, could you please use stamps on the parcel/envelope when sending me something. Thank you.

Many, many thanks to these very generous BCers (including anyone else who I might have inadvertently left out):
