Extended Profile

Hello!

Welcome to my bookshelf. I have been bookcrossing for some time in Birmingham but have moved recently so activity is a little less structured (and I'm missing my monthly meet-ups). However, if you do see something, and can bear with me during my current upheaval, please do PM me and I will see if I can get it to you. NB - if something is in the permanent collection I will not be able to send it on.

I'm happy to post books by surface mail to overseas guests so please ask if you would like something, but don't expect to see it for a while!

My wishlist is below and anything is gratefully received. I'm trying to RABCK my favourite books to people's wishlists and find it's one of the best ways to bookcross!

Wishlist below thanks to www.cliff1976.com


Below is the list of books I have read so far this year. I tend to like a surprisingly low number of books so to limit this I've started working off recommendations. Quality has certainly taken a turn for the better since this time - let's hope it continues!
