I love reading and feel very deprived when I run out of books. Since joining Bookcrossing in June 2006, this no longer seems to be a problem. My book pile is rising steadily. I now have to re-assess any book before I release it, particularly if I haven't read it for some time.

Bookcrossing is a great community and many thanks to you all for being there.
