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. Scroll down to the BookCrossing labels section 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.
