My username is the name of the villain in Castle Perilous by John DeChancie. The book itself is pretty mediocre, but I got an online handle out of it which I've been using since around 1993. It's all one word: muh-LID-ee-uh. My name is not Lydia. :)
As of 23 June 2017...

I am ridiculously behind on book reviews.

My wishlist and RABCK.com information are both up to date.

Longest time between release and catch: 9 years, 3 months

Check out my wild catches.

I'm hosting a BookCrossing Meetup Bookbox. It's like a normal bookbox, except instead of being passed between individuals, it's being passed between local BookCrossing groups.
