If you have found one of my books, enjoy! Please be sure to journal it to let me know where it is. If you read it, please also let me know what you thought. After that, the book is yours. You can release it, give it away or keep it till the day you die. It's up to you!
The books I release are not an indication of my taste. I release all different types of books, many of which are unread. A better idea of the types of books I like can be gleaned by clicking the links above to see what's on my wishlist or how I’ve rated what I've read.
Regarding my wishlist - this is a place to keep track of what I want to read (my memory is like a sieve lol). It is not a list of requests. I am, of course, grateful for any RABCK's that I receive, but I am not greedily asking for hundreds of books!
Please be advised that I post once per fortnight. I have a very tight budget, so if I have filled my postage quota, you will have to wait until the following fortnight. Apart from rings and rays I have already signed up for, I only post within Australia. I’m sorry, but postage costs from Australia are astronomical. Finally, I do not engage in trades so please don’t ask.
Anyone who needs to contact me can email me at:
Have a great day and may you always have a good book to read!

Book of the Month
I really enjoyed this cute tale about the origins of Santa Claus. I always like to see authors humanizing the dry and dusty Bible characters, and Roloff does this particularly well. I found myself emotionally invested in the situations and personalities portrayed in this book. The Innkeeper of Bethlehem is perfect for Christians searching for a way to include Santa in their Christmas without detracting from the spiritual aspect of the holiday. Even non-religious folk, however, can relate to the universal themes of kindness, love and family throughout this story. I feel it is definitely worthwhile reading.
