Contact Information:-


Of course you can PM me through the link above, but I've been told that PMs can be unreliable. You can directly email me at loom91@yahoo.com, but please include the word "bookcrossing" in the subject line to trigger the traps.


About me:-


If you are displeased with any of my actions, please let me know first by PM or email rather than start a thread. If it was truly a mistake I'll make every effort to correct it. You can also find me at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Loom91 and http://www.flickr.com/photos/loom91. By the way, Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia anyone (including you) can edit, is a great concept and spiritually analogous to the BookCrossing movement. If you appreciate the concept of BookCrossing then you will certainly like Wikipedia. Just go to their main page, find out what they are about, sign up, and play your part in the Open Information Revolution. Wikipedia is the world's largest encyclopedia, one of the web's most popular websites and is being called the next Google.

Resources:-


These are the resources I've found helpful and I believe you will too, esspecially if you are new around here and are being troubled by too many questions.

1)TexasWren's crossing (Contains the most extensive help resource about all things bookcrossing, along many other useful and intersting things. This is the place you want to go to have your questions answered. Not to mention he has the most amazing piece of javascript I've seen.)
2)Cliff's wishlist service (Ask me if you are having trouble signing up.)
3)RABCK directory (Really great if you like being surprised.)
4)LostBookIsland (The place to go to for a stalled ring/ray.)
5)Open bookrings (A more or less comprehensive and up-to-date list of all open bookrings.)


An Apology:-


My first language is not English, so sometimes I may seem rude when I don't mean to. Please do not draw conclusions from my tone.
