My profile picture is in honor of my beloved javaczuk, who shares my passions for books, good company, and great coffee. (The espresso macchiato art is by a local barrista here in Charleston at our Kudu Coffee OBCZ.)
Peace on Earth; Good Books to All.
Please do not ask me for trades or send unsolicited requests for me to send books out to you. You may be the sweetest person on earth, but I don't want to send you a book simply because you request it. My budget is limited. I concentrate mostly on wild releases and stocking the OBCZs. :)
This was taken at the Book Tree (aka Bücherwald) in Berlin. And it's a great bookshelf! Brilliant! It's in front of a store called Noa Noa just off the corner of Kollwitzstraße and Sredzkistraße in Prenzlauer Berg.

The Charleston area has A Bunch of OBCZs .

I also manage the OBCZ at Grapes and Beans in Clayton, Georgia (the release zone is here, though I get there far less frequently than I wish.)
Here is my favorite picture of my mum (known as bumma), who left us in 2009 at age 87 and another to honor her love of Jane Austen (Full story is here. )
Bookczuk is pronounced book-chuk, roughly as in "how many books could a bookczuk chuck...The icon is by shadie, but it should help you remember how to say my name right, should we ever meet!
I am awaiting my turn at book for several bookrays/rings. If for some reason I do not answer your PM, please try again. I usually am fairly good about getting back to folks who contact me, but sometimes my mailserver shuffles PMs off to the spam trap. Go figure.
