is now available! My website is The coloring books are under line art, or a direct link is

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.

Our Charleston (and SC, and those who are interested in Charleston...) BookCrossers group is hosted by Yahoo! Click here to visit or join.

The Charleston area has A Bunch of OBCZs .

James Island, West Ashley, Folly Beach

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.)

Bumma wakes to a New TomorrowHere 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. )Where Jane Austen meets WTF?

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.
