A Little About Me:

I'm a big believer in the freecycle/pay it forward concept, and I instantly fell in love with this site! I quickly became a BookCrossing junkie. :) My friends and family are more than a little concerned about the ever-growing pile of books.

Let me know if you are interested in any of the books marked available. I'm also willing to bump up books to the top of my TBR pile if someone's interested in it. Just shoot me a quick PM about it!

I'm into buying/adopting/rescuing all types of books, so my shelf may not really represent me. Even my TBR pile is a bit deceiving. I'll read just about anything. My book philosophy is much the same as my philosophy towards food: I'll try anything once. :)
