If you are interested in any of my books marked "available" just send me a PM and we'll work something out. For books marked "to be read" you can send a PM as well and I will move it to the top of Mt. TBR.


My own current Bookrings, -rays and -boxes:
Ausgebrannt BookRay - still open to join
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry BookRing - still open to join
Room BookRing - still open to join

I enjoy meeting bookcrossers at meetups all over the world. Here you can see where I have met other BC members:

Bremen - Restaurant Überseemuseum
Lübeck - Café Art
Frankfurt - Mosebach
Uelzen - Metronom to Hamburg (hoefis BC-Deutschlandfahrt 2007)
Bamberg - Café Abseits
Coburg - Hungry Highlander
Flensburg - Kritz, Roter Hof
Berlin - UnCon 2012

Abroad:
London, UK - Stamford Arms, The Natural Café, Cittie of Yorke
Sydney, Australia - Cricketer's Arms Hotel
Dublin, Ireland - Westmoreland Pub (Cassidy's)


I am currently waiting for the following Bookrings, -rays and -boxes:
Inferno (ring started by jennsbooks)
European Bookmark Box (started by Tarna)
Amon (ring started by Wortklauber)
Und Gott sprach: Wir müssen reden! (ring started by WhiteNights)

I'm trying to cut down on these so that I will eventually be able to actually reduce my Mt. TBR. Because my motivation to join BC had a lot to do with wanting to REDUCE the amount of books I have ;-))

Thanks to ti-ana's bookring about the flight of Tibetan children across the Himalaya to India Flucht über den Himalaya - Tibets Kinder auf dem Weg ins Exil I have been reminded that their struggle is not over, yet. So I am trying to gather books about Tibet (Facts and Fiction) to "spread the word" and get people informed about the situation there in the form of bookrings and -rays and wild releases. Hopefully more people will develop an interest in this topic by reading about it. So if you have books about Tibet (in English or German) and have no special plans for them I'll be glad to take them off your hands ;-)
