My sister-in-law moved into a new home and
gave me several hundred paperback books she no longer had room for....
my daughter-in-law (Crankydragon) told me of this great website...
serendipity!
Now as I read these books (mostly historical romance) I can release them in the wild.
What a fun idea.

Living in Mississippi, I have a soft spot for John Grisham....
I can remember when he had a small law office just around the corner
and one of his first book signings was at the local Kroger grocery store.
Boy, what a long way he has come!

I enjoy reading almost anything....
sci-fi, mystery, historical romance, paranomal,
but looks like I'll be reading the classic romance novels for a while...
or maybe just setting them free

I am always looking for any books on Elvis
(or that just have Elvis in the title)

Note.... Books marked personal collection were either gifts from loved ones,
limited editions, or signed copies and will not be released in the wild in my lifetime....
Lord knows what the boys will do with them after I'm gone.

Crankydragon
is my daughter-in-law and she's the one that turned me on to BookCrossing,
so she will know exactly what to do with all my books!
