Extended Profile

I love books (obviously) and I really enjoying reading the stories/travels of the books on the site and sending my books on a journey too!

I am always happy to swap with anyone for things on my available list - just PM me. Alternatively, if you see something you'd like to read on my TBR pile, I'll happily move it up the pile to read - I like having a reason to choose one book over another!
