I have always been a bit of a bookworm and come from a family who is forever swapping books. I love the idea of book crossing as I never know what to do when I am at the end of the line, now I do. This is how I work my bookshelf:

TBR - I do intend to read these books, I am willing to send them out and will bump them up the pile following requests
AVL - Are available for sending
PC - none of my books will be set as this
RES - they are either part of a bookring/ray or have already been promised to someone else

My favorite books are:
The Hobbit, Memoirs of a Geisha, Ella Minnow Pea, Sleepers.

My other interests include horse riding, photography, gardening, going to theatre (particularly musicals), and spending time with friends, family and my cats. During the summer I volunteer once a week for Kesteven Rideability, which I find very rewarding and absolutely love, I'm still trying to convince my husband that going part time at work is a good idea so I can spend more time with this very worthwhile charity. If you would like to find out more please visit This year I am taking part in a 5k inflatable run to help raise funds. If you would like to sponsor me follow the link Every little helps :-)

You can also find me on goodreads, I'm the same name as I am here but with a picture of our black cat and not our tabby who we unfortunately lost earlier this year.

I love lists and am working my way through the below - good job there is a lot of cross overs!!
BBC big read top 200 = 160 (80%)
Telegraphs 100 Novels = 64 (64%)
1001 books: Original = 250 (24.98%) - 2008 list = 221 (22.08%) - 2010 list = 218 (21.78%)
combined list = 279 (21.46%)

I am also trying to work my way through the Discworld series (in order!) and have read the first seventeen, I have a few holes in the collection though and you can find any missing ones on my wish list, I will always exchange if you have any that fill the gaps.

I have read books from the following countries
