The books on my shelf do not necessarily reflect my reading tastes or interests. I find and release books of most genres. If you are interested in a book on my shelf, I would be glad to trade with you for something from my book wish list. If you do not have a book to trade then please offer to pay shipping or offer something to trade from my non-book wish list below.

I'm Sarah Coller, aka Elizardbreath. I received that lovely moniker from my mom (BookCrosser Charlieshack) when I was about 7, as a play on my middle name, Elizabeth. I'm the mother of 9 little sweeties aged 16 down to 3--5 girls, 4 boys. My husband and I homeschool our children---a responsibility that is mainly mine since he works full time as a computer software programmer. I love to write and am the author of the popular blog, Classical Homemaking, as well as my book blog, Belle's Library. I love Jesus and try to live my life according to the teachings of the Bible. For the past 9 years of membership, I have formed wonderful friendships, experienced literature that I never would have picked up before, and learned a lot about the world outside of my own little spot on the map.

My Wish List for Swaps and Sweeps:

Any Vintage or Antique books (feel free to register and label them)
Books written during or about the Victorian Era
Books about England: history, culture, fiction and nonfiction
Books about Queen Victoria or other British monarchs
STARBUCKS GIFT CARDS (I'm a mom of 9...a little mom time out is one of the best gifts ever!)
