I've moved, so please do not send anything to me at a street beginning with the letter "C." Contact me via PM or editorgrrlATyahooDOTcom for my new address. Thanks!

I'll trade books marked "available" (status set by me) anywhere in the world for books on my wishlist. I also swap at PaperbackSwap, TitleTrader and FrugalReader. If you have a book registered by me, all I ask is that you please journal it. Then add it to your permanent collection, let it sit on Mt. TBR, or read & release it (wild or controlled)—it's your book now.

******************

Guidelines for my bookboxes
The bookbox should remain in your hands for no more than seven days. When you receive the box please let me know you got it, then PM the next person for her address. (See shipping order below.) If there's no response after repeated attempts, skip to the next person on the list. (PM me if you need to be moved down the list or removed.) Take as many books as you like & replace with an equal number of chicklit books. (Here's a list of chicklit authors compiled by the Chicago Public Library.) No duplicates, please.
