I'm a fourth-year english/history student looking forward to graduation so I can have a regular schedule and do what I want in the evenings. A regular income would also be nice. I have two kids, a five year old daughter and a two year old son. They take
up the majority of my time but they're lots of fun (most of the time) so I don't complain when I can't do the things I want.
Aside from buying a lot of books, I also like to buy shoes. And I have a thing for sweaters.
I have always been an avid reader. I used to "forget" my gym clothes in high school so I could sit on the bleachers with a book. Until my teacher figured out what I was doing. My favorite books are the ones I get so involved in I'm disappointed when they end. There aren't many books I don't like but this kind is hard to find.
I have a wish list!

I will be happy to trade books with anyone anywhere. Many of my books are listed in my permanent collection but if you ask me nicely and have something I might like a little better...
For trades, I'm always looking for a good book to read. Actually, I always have lots to read, but more is always good.
