Welcome to bookcrossing! If you have found one of my books - it was my gift to you, however it would be "great" if you wrote a journal entry (even anonymous) to update us on this book's travels and adventures. Thank you.


KAIROS OUTSIDE: A ministry to women who have/had a loved one in prison or havUe been there themselves. This is a world wide ministry that is on going. I am collecting books to give the women. Thank you to those who donated books: bascula, bookstogive, bsliv1219, cbostler, classicfox, Doveilibri, elizardbreath, faramir10, JDT, kittyreads, nancynova, NMReader, purple4, queenfrog, shroffland, southernfryed, stringofpearls, svoight, tabby-cat-owner, whiskeyjane, reallybookish, and some I have missed naming.

purple4 is my daughter - She is a fabulous daughter, wife, and mother. She loves to read.
bet80 is my mother - She is the one who gave me my love for reading. She is a super woman.
BabyPooh is my granddaughter - She was born reading. She loves to read.
CrazyCreep is my granddaughter - She and I love to talk about the books we read in common.
BooBoos is my granddaughter - She has decided that reading is fun and wants to buy more books.

ALL YEAR: God's Best for My Life by Lloyd John Ogilvie and New Testament (A challenge with my grandchildren)


nothing is new: I took this from Weebaby who took it from Gizmopuddy, who took it from someone else, who took it from someone else.... finally, changed by me
MY BOOK RATING SYSTEM (borrowed from florafloraflora and tweaked by me)

10: Excellent.This book has impacted me deeply, or has simply been a pure delight to read.
9: Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10.
8: Good, solid book that I would recommend to others.
7: Good book, but ... it didn't grab me in a *big* way.
6: Decent, but only enjoyed it somewhat or not really my type of book.
5: I'm sure somebody else would like this, although I didn't.
4: Only OK. Barely worth reading. I read it but don't know why
3: Major problems. I don't recommend this. Probably did not finish this book
2: I gave up on this book. Someone else may enjoy it, but I didn't
1: Ugh! Stay away! It's hard to imagine *anyone* liking this book!!! Maybe only read a few pages.
