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 17 down to 4--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 and my newest venture, The Victorian Letter Writers Guild. I'm also a published author with my newest release being an encouraging study for women called Now: Purposeful Steps Toward a More Abundant Life. I love Jesus and try to live my life according to the teachings of the Bible. For the past 11 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 of any kind (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
