A LITTLE ABOUT NAT4LEE AND BOOKCROSSING
nat4lee is currently a student with four beautiful cats. It will take me a few days to respond to your private messages. All of my books marked "available" are just that, available. If there is a book on my bookshelf that you would like to read, do not hesitate to send me a private message. I am more than happy to post you the book you would like to read. If your interest is in trading books, setting up bookrings, et cetera, I enjoy doing that as well. Please stop and visit my Official BookCrossing Zone at the Starbucks Coffee Shop at 6525-B Frontier Drive in Springfield, Virginia.
I am member of "BCinDC" a BookCrossing group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BC_DC/ that rotates monthly meets in the Maryland / D.C. / Virginia metropolitan area. See what we've been up to by clicking here or see below for upcoming BCinDC events:
3 Nov. 2012 -- BCinDC meets at Birdie's Cafe in Westminster, Maryland at 1:00 p.m.
"BCinDC" hosted the 2011 10th Anniversary BookCrossing International Convention, you can view information about the convention at http://www.bcindc.zoiks.org.
Why Bookcross? I release books in the hope that they may find another person who enjoys getting lost in a good book as much as I do. I want my books to leave people in good health and good spirits. I hope that reading will not become a lost art to the younger generation entering into a world becoming far more dependent on technology. I have no problem with anyone keeping a book they received from me or that they found ("caught") after I have left it somewhere to be found ("released" it). It is yours to do with as you please - keep, wild release, swap, give to someone as a gift, or whatever. All I ask is that you PLEASE journal the book when you receive it.
I have a few favorite authors. If you have novels by these authors that you are willing to part with, I will gladly trade with you! These people include: Mitch Albom, Clive Cussler, William C. Davis, Parnell Hall, David McCullough, James M. McPherson, Allan Nevins, Jodi Picoult, James I. Robertson Jr., James L. Swanson and Harry Turtledove.

WHERE MY BOOKS HAVE TRAVELLED:
MAKING THE WHOLE WORLD A LIBRARY!
As a lifelong lover of geography, I am always intrigued by the locations to which my books have travelled. Nothing makes my day more than seeing a new journal entry arrive to my e-mail inbox.

I have had the pleasure of watching my books travel 800,000 miles (1,300,000 kilometers) to visit 368 towns in 38 states and 30 countries around the world!

BOOKCROSSING IS FUN WITH BCinDC!
We are a group of BookCrossers that rotate meetings in the Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC area. Join us here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BC_DC/

If you are interested in joining this group please include your BookCrossing screenname in the comments section of your membership request.
It happens that I had an accidental encounter with my local bookcrossers! Back in 2008, I had been a bookcrosser for a year or two, releasing maybe one book a month, thinking "Why am I the only one doing this thing?" Everything changed when I was at a local cafe in my hometown studying after my classes at the local college. This large group of a dozen people come into the cafe with large bags, laughing and dropping books left and right. Naturally, this gets my attention! I get up to ask them who they are, and it turns out that the monthly meeting of "BCinDC" was taking place! I got to see firsthand that there are *gasp* lots of good people releasing books right along with me in my town! I'm not alone! And best of all, we all release together each and every month, and that's exciting! The rest, as they say, is history!
