I've always loved books and at times this has led to me hoarding books I'll never read or re-read. Before I joined BookCrossing I would pass my unwanted books to charity sales or friends but, I love the idea of releasing books for others to find and being able to track where they go. my bookshelf does not necessarily reflect my own reading tastes as the books have come from all over the place!

I'm happy to trade if you see something "available" on my shelf (although I'd prefer UK trades only due to postage costs; however, if you are International and reading this it's worth asking!) So let me know if you see something you'd like.

I caught my first wild release book on 31 January 2007! Yippeee - May it be the first of many!

*Thank-you* For all the RABCK's I've received - You know who you are!

Book Rings I'm taking part in:
I'm not signing up to any more bookrings/rays at the moment due to the high volume of TBR's and the fact most bookrings all turn up together when I haven't got time to read them quickly!

The kind of classic novel I am is apparently:

Which Classic Novel do You Belong In?

Your belonging in The Mysteries of Udolpho is quite evident; a world of intrigue, melancholy, sublimity and terror. You belong where there are danger, gloomy edifices, and evil Italian guardians. Your passion for the passion of the Mediterranean, the divine contemplation of nature, and for adventure stories, makes you a prime contender for a spot in a gothic romance.
