Books waiting for:
Reflection from Skyblue505- since September 2005



I have slowed down mailing books/packages overseas since the U.S.P.S. no longer provides an option for "surface" mail. If you want your opinion of the disappearance of surface mail to be heard, contact USPS. I have sent them an email to let my voice/opinion known.


I purchase a lot of my books at the local library booksale, the books are no longer their property.. so you don't have to worry that you are in possession of a stolen book. : ) I normally won't register ANY book that is in my permanent collection. (Not trying to sound snobbish, but they are classics and old.) If you collect something special.. let me know and I will try to send it with the book. (postcards, stamps, spoons, coins..etc) Ohhh... and all books come with cat hair for free! :)

I normally read fiction/literature, history, bios & autobiographies. I enjoy traveling, quilting and reading. I collect currency from other countries. I also enjoy drinking tea.
