Updated 27 January 2006

It's been almost a year since I discovered bookcrossing, but rather than reading, registering and releasing all the books that have been sitting around my house, I've been joining bookrings and bookrays! I went a little crazy with them last year, but I think I'm on top of it now, so if I'm next in line for a ring, can you please ask me if I'm ready for it first, rather than just sending the book! Thanks!

THANK YOU FOR MY RABCKs - Tasamina, amberC, Readinator and Viola7 :)

I'm currently reading:
Lots of books from bookrings and bookrays (below)!

Books I plan on reading one day in the near future, but suspect I'll never get to thanks to the neverending supply of books from bookrings and bookrays!
Mr Big - Tony Reeves
The Name of the Rose - Umberto Eco
Break, Blow, Burn - Camille Paglia

I have heaps of other books waiting to be read (mostly borrowed from non-BCing friends) including:
