Extended Profile

Like many of my fellow BookCrossers, my home has become overcrowded with piles of books. In general, I'm mostly a reader of contemporary fiction, but I also read a smattering of other genres as well, including young adult, memoirs, non-fiction, and humor. Approximately half of my reading is done on audio, with the other half split fairly evenly between paper books & e-books.

I can fully credit BookCrossing for being the original culprit in turning a book hobby into an obsession, but since then I've also become fairly active with several bookish sites including,,, and my more recent obsession, the Litsy app. My user name is typically either indygo88 or Coleen if you want to find me.
