Extended Profile

About MeI happened upon BookCrossing through a post on the PostSecret blog in March 2007 (I'll gladly give that poster my referring member credit if anyone knows who it was!) I've always been a reader, but had slacked off incredibly in the last few years before I discovered BookCrossing. BookCrossing renewed my enthusiasm for turning off the TV and the computer and losing myself in a good story.

I love all the official stuff from the BC Supply Store, but I also love that you can make your own labels and release materials. If you would like to see what I have created, visit my blog, adventures in bookcrossing. Take a look at the BookCrossing labels sections on the right side and feel free to download and use anything you like. You can find links to other user-created labels in this thread.
