About me: I'm an assistant attorney general in Missouri. I enjoy reading nonfiction, occasional science fiction, and general fiction/literature. I rarely read mysteries or thrillers, though occasionally pick one up. I almost never read romances.
My available books are available for trades here -- please feel free to send me a PM. I mostly don't trade TBRs except through swaps or relays because I don't know when I'll get to something and I don't want to have a long list of books that I owe to others.
I can most often be found haunting the forums over at
Book Obsessed where I run the Everybook VBB and participate in various swaps, exchanges, relays, and Virtual Book Boxes (VBBs).
I've really cut down on participation in rings/rays because my reading time is rather limited right now, but I'm still interested in joining a couple of non-virtual bookboxes for the thrill of handling and flipping through a stack of books.
