Hi There,

I mostly enjoy sci-fi, but as you may be able to see from my reading list, I have tried some fantasy and I am willing to give most things a go. I have read and own all of the current Terry Pratchett books. They are not on BC due to their condition (I call it loved, others call it abused!), but if you can't get hold of one, I am willing to lend out.

I am also on PostCrossing and my sign on there is Gingerboy, although BookCrossing has to be my first love!
