My Wish List:

My family's Amazon wish list

If you want to send something, check out my address, I'm on RABCK.COM!

If you've been having trouble sending me a PM, email me at mrsordonez at yahoo dot com

I know I'm supposed to write some stuff here so that you all can get to know me better, but I'm terribly shy and don't like talking much about myself. I started reading at age three, and thus, my love of books began. I wanted to be a school librarian when I was in elementary school because I loved being around the books. They had the sign-the-card system then, no computers!

After my first love affair with the English language, I started studying Spanish in 6th grade. I went on an amazing trip as an exchange student to Costa Rica in high school, so I decided to major in Spanish and International Studies. After graduation, I had no idea what to do with my life (besides read Spanish literature--even better than English literature in some cases) so I went on to graduate school in Spanish. Currently, I'm not putting my education to work at a customer service center, but hope one day to get a job in editing or publishing.

If you are wanting a book from my TBR pile, please be patient. I don't mind earmarking books for future passing, it just won't be any time soon.
I am happy to send out all books marked available in exchange for postage within the US or foreign coins and bills (I'm a collector) internationally. Just PM and ask! By the way, I seem to get to the post office only 1-2 times per month because of my work schedule and family obligations. I do get things sent out, I'm sometimes just a bit slow. Thanks for your patience.

I am currently in possession of 1 bookring books, with 0 on the way, and 1 to mail out.

On a last note, I'd just like to add that "You can't tell a bookcrosser by her bookshelf." :) Meaning, I haven't read every book I've released, and I haven't liked every book that ends up on my bookshelf. Hopefully, though, they will eventually end up in the hands of someone who does appreciate their worth.

What kind of bookcrosser are you
Your Result: ring in bundles

They come and come. Ringbooks come in herds, that's what you say! You made a basket on your mail box, otherwise the frontdoor woldn't open when you return from work. You know your postman by christian name.
