I love books, I have a cupboard under the stairs full of books, a bookcase in the lounge, shelves full in the dining room and even a shelf on the stairs all bursting with books. My children love books but we all possess books that need a little more love.
They can be free and wild spreading their pleasure far and wide; they are not books to be cooped up in cupboards and cases.
And now I can feel free to love all those Roald Dahl, Terry Pratchett and Robert Rankin tomes in need of some TLC, although preferably not when the children are pouring tapioca all over the kitchen floor.
I manage the local OBCZ in the Community Centre in Ellistown near Coalville, Leicestershire.

Please PM me with your location and postal preferences to join.
If you wish to be added to the list, please PM me with your details.
Note that you may need to mail internationally.
You will be sending the book to the person who appears after you in the list, so you need to PM them to get their address.
It's not a race, but please read and send the book on as speedily as you can, other people want to read it too.
Please journal the book once you have received it (so we all know where it currently is) and again when you have read it (so we know what you thought of it!)
Rings I've joined but not yet received
