Extended Profile

My favs are historical fiction, fantasy books and the classics. I also love a good laugh and like reading the works of Christopher Moore, Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. I spend a lot of time in the car so I listen to audio books as well. You'll notice that I listen to quite of few children/young adult books. That's because I really do love imaginative tales and I find them easier to follow while driving. Don't want to be too distracted on the road!

I've noticed that some BCers like to collect items such as stamps or postcards. I've started to collect bookplates. I use these in my "special" books and I also like to share them with other BCers, tucking them in my "Controlled Releases". Just my way of saying "HI!" and wishing you an AWESOME day.

**By the way, if any of my Bookcrossing friends want to "friend me" on Facebook, I'd love it. Just be sure to send me a little message telling me your Bookcrossing name. I've received some friend requests in the past and didn't accept them because I didn't recognize the people by their real name.

NOTICE: I am willing to trade books with others. Check out my Available and Wish Lists.

Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.

Arnold Lobel





Thanks to those who have granted me my wishes!
