Extended Profile

I am a bits and pieces sort of person - hence my screen name! The puss pun refers to my love of cats, particularly Morgan and Denzel, my beautiful boys who chose to share their lives with me and now chase butterflies and bask in the sun in cat heaven.

Books, music, film and daydreaming are my other true loves. Yes, I really do live in a fantasy land and get quite upset when the real world catches up with me!

I am happy to trade or give any books on my shelf other than permanent collection books; if you would like to read a book of mine that is part of my permanent collection I will be happy to set it up as a bookring or send it to you on loan.

I am very happy to send out books on request. However, if you ask me for a book I reserve the right to post it when it is convenient to me, to request that you send me a book in return (not something that I often do unless you have something that I can't resist!), or to turn your request into a book ring or ray (with you having first dibs in shipping order).

Controlled Release stats begin on 14 December 2009, prior to this they were not recorded as official releases.

BOOKBOXES:-

You're an Otter!

Playful and fun-loving, no one can deny your adventurous spirit.
You are sleek and slick and don't mind being in a variety of different settings
or even flitting from one to the other quickly. If you live close to an ocean,
you spend a good deal of time on your back, which is your preferred position for
meals. While you don't spend a ton of time on it, others have been known to ponder
what you ought to do. You adore popsicles.

White Dragon. You have the spirit of a White
Dragon. You often feel loney, and despair, but
you're loving and compasionate. You would
rather help, than harm. You are much more than
you seem, yet won't show anyone, unless they
show interest. Often times you stick to
yourself, and let others lead on.
