I’ve been a member of BookCrossing for ten years! I enjoy sharing my finds with fellow book lovers and reading the journal entries. What happens when I read a book I don't enjoy? Usually after reading the JEs, I find a different perspective (or 'aha moment') much like a good book club discussion. Wild releasing is my way of touching the world with a small act of kindness. My other interests are decorative painting, cooking and gardening.

Please note my bookshelf does not accurately display my book preference. As noted in my JEs, some are my husband's selections and some are purchased just to RABCK and/or Wild Release. I do read a lot of different genres including mystery, horror, humor, chick-lit and, once in a while, a spiritual or cat book. I must confess to enjoying the screwball mystery such as Bubbles Yablonsky series by Sarah Strohmeyer ~ a girl's gotta laugh, right?

Some authors I enjoy reading: Martha Beck, Jennifer Belle, Elizabeth Berg, Richard Paul Evans, Gillian Flynn, Emily Grayson, Joe Hill, Jen Lancaster, Billie Letts, Elizabeth Letts, Sue Miller, Laurie Notaro, Jodi Picoult, Kathy Reichs, Anita Shreve, Sarah Strohmeyer, Nicholas Sparks, and Jennifer Weiner. I love trying a new author, which usually adds to this list!
