Hi, I'm Necole. I have 2 daughters; the oldest has her own bookshelf:
the youngest has her own bookshelf:
-- if you want to trade any of their available books, PM me and I'll arrange it. I'm an English teacher in degree and theory, and I'm looking at starting a tutoring center.
My book tastes are ecclectic: teen books, especially Holocaust-based fiction; new age stuff, angels, and differing views of Christianity; the "classical canon," including Shakespeare and the other "Dead White Guys"; the new canon, especially Toni Morrison. If a book is marked PC on my shelf, it's worth asking to borrow and return it -- these are books I want to keep as long as I'm around, but I want to share them, too.
I have many books which are victims of my "English Teacher Mentality." This would be the thought that since I'm an English teacher, I need to have copies of this book for me to read and for my students to access. I have not read many of these books - sad? Yes. However, BookCrossing has forced me to identify these, and they are now in Mount TBR.
PLEASE NOTE: After August 7, 2004, I will only be sending out mailings once a month. I'll PM you when the book is being sent. The only exceptions to this practice will be Bookring, Bookray, and Bookbox books.
