Extended Profile

Welcome to ghir's Bookcrossing shelf. Willing to trade, make me an offer if you see something on my bookshelf that is available. Have designated some of my TBR as available; I will make a decision whether to trade without reading or read immediately if anyone expresses interest in one of those. (Don't even bother sending a message asking for a book without offering a trade or postage. That's selfish. Didn't your mama teach you anything?)
