I dunno if my PMs are working so well these days, so if you don't hear back from me within a day or two after you PM me...you can find me at toadacious1 at yahoo.com

Trades are good again! If you want one of my availables, let me know. I will trade internationally, but only for books from my wish list.

Hello, I'm Megan, and I'm a bookaholic.

I discovered bookcrossing in....could it be? 2003! Having just passed my 7 year BookCrossing anniversary, it's time yet again to write something different keep the same old stuff in my profile. Most of the books I own except a rare few books that have attained permanent collection status, I have registered on my bookshelf. In large part, yes, they represent my reading tastes, but I do share my books with my mother, so some of it reflects a bit more of her tastes. I buy most of my books used from library used book sales, Goodwill, or the Salvation Army. I'm always surprised at the quality and quantity of books that can be found at these places. That's not to say I don't buy new books on occasion, I do - mostly around the holidays and if they're on sale, of course!

Having talked all about my books, now I'll indulge in a little talking about me. I'm a 26 year old college grad from rural Pennsylvania, and I went to school in rural Pennsylvania...I can't seem to escape. I escaped for a six-month stretch in Boston, which was fun, but have since been re-assimilated into rural PA. I'm still trying to figure out where it is I belong! Activities around here are limited to playing with my pets (a dachshund, Rudy, and a cat, Merlin), bowling, going to the movies, reading, and, of course, seeking out cheap used books from whereever they can be found.

I love to trade, but I don't always require one to send you a book, but I appreciate an offer of a trade, if you're asking for one of my books. Therefore, I try to limit my mailing to the US and Canada, for the most part, with a few special exceptions on occasion. I'm still waiting for my "real" job to come along...until then, still poor. Therefore, I try to limit my mailing to the US and Canada, for the most part, with a few special exceptions on occasion. I also will be unable to promise you any of my TBR books until they have been read and set to available because of the sharing situation between my mom and I, so please do not ask for books that are still marked as TBR on my shelf.

I especially like to trade for things from my bcwish.cliff1976.net/yourotherleft" target="_blank">My Wish List. Just a note...this is not a "gimme" list. While I appreciate receiving books to read that are on my wish list, it is very much a tool for me to use to keep track of books that have struck me as interesting as I've combed BookCrossing, BookObsessed, and the litblogosphere, among other places where one may become enlightened about excellent books. As a matter of fact, finding books for my wish list is high on my list of hobbies...which is ridiculous, I suppose, and has led me to have a rather huge list.

While I appreciate invitations to join bookrings for books on my wish list, I am in the process of extricating myself from a severe bookring addiction. Please help me stay on the wagon and don't tempt with invitations to join more!
