Extended Profile

I've recently moved to a new state, I'm slowly reassembling things here, including my extended profile. If you have my old address (in Ohio) please contact me for the new address before you send anything my way.

Updated 19 Mar 11



I’m fairly new to BC but well established over in Paperback Swap. In the past few years I've caught a couple BC books and logged them while anonymous. I wish I would have taken the time to sign up with BC, I’m curious where the books have ended up.

I usually read 2 - 3 books a month, sometimes more depending on how quickly I can get into something, I prefer fiction but sometimes other genres catch my eye. I’m also active on LibraryThing.

Although it may seem that I have a lot on my plate, I remain very conscious of my commitments and do take the timelines seriously. The next person in line has received the bookring or ray that have a + following the title. I try to follow-up with folks since I feel responsible for a book from the moment it hits my mailbox until it arrives with the next participant. The books listed with a * after them are on their way to me, so I should have them in the next couple of months.
