I have not been very pro-active on Bookcrossing for a while now, but I am hoping to get back into it properly as I love Bookcrossing! My sister (bradgirl) got me interested in it originally, over 6 years ago, and gave me my wings three times, thank you! More and more books somehow seem to magically appear on my TBR pile and every time I think I am getting somewhere with reducing it, a book will catch my eye. If you see a book you like on my available pile, I am definitely willing and able to send it out to you.
