Extended Profile

I read anything and everything, although I go in phases - I used to love Stephen King, then it was Thomas Hardy, then Terry Pratchett, Joanne Harris, Neil Gaiman.... the list goes on but my latest favourite is Robert Rankin and his fantastic Brentford Trilogy.

I have been BXing for years now although I have been very quiet of late (a couple of years really) I am ready to start sharing books again. Hopefully my catch rate will remain at about 10%, although I'm not expecting much. It took 8 months and 60 wild releases before I got my first journal entry and I was wondering what I was doing wrong!

*****MY WISHLIST*****
Ya-Yas in Bloom - Rebecca Wells
Four to Score - Janet Evanovich (and the rest of 'em)
Food in History - Reay Tannahill
As I walked out one summer morning - Laurie Lee
Possesing the Secret of Joy - Alice Walker
Merde Actually - Stephen Clarke

The following Pratchetts:

A Tourist Guide to Lancre
Nanny Ogg's Cookbook
Where's My Cow
