Are you in the Washington, DC, metro area? Please join BC in DC, the Yahoo group for BookCrossers in DC, Northern Virginia, and Maryland. We meet monthly(ish) at various locations around the area. Send me a PM if you want more information.

At the moment, Mt. TBR is at K5+ status. So please do not send me any RABCKs, even if they are on my wishlist. Thank you! I appreciate your help. alt="BC Convention, Oxford, 10th - 12th April 2015">

I love books, as anyone who knows me or has been to my place (where they are everywhere) can attest, and Bookcrossing is one of the few ways I can bring myself to part with books. THANK YOU to Beano-the-Cat for leaving a book at Gettysburg and introducing me to this world (and how fabulous that my intro came through a "cat", since kitties are one of my other big passions).

If I have a book on my AVL that you're interested in, please PM me, because I am always happy to share. My Wishlist tends to be a reflection of every cool book I have seen when spending time on this site and thought "I have to remember that so I can read it someday." I have received quite a few either as Bookrings or RABCKs from fellow BCers, which has been so wonderful, but I am always adding more to my list. One rule I did make was that if it comes from a BCer, no matter how much I love it, it will either be wild released or sent as a RABCK to someone else, to ensure the continued flow of good karma and books (which are pretty much the same thing for me).

My other passion is photography and I have been very lucky in that respect because I am now living in the DC area and learning to be a city girl and to take advantage of all of the wonderful opportunities Washington has to offer. Still miss Washington state, although it rains here almost as much as in the Pacific Northwest. And there are a lot of great photo excursions and day trips here, including museums and monuments and Civil War battlefields.
