My personal trading philosophy:

If I send you a book as a RABCK, trade, or relay it is yours to do with as you please (after journaling it, I hope!)!
I reserve the right to decline to send you a book for whatever reason.
If I offer a RABCK in the forum, I WILL check profiles before I decide who gets it.
If I offer a ring/ray, same thing.
I reserve the right to exclude anyone from my rings/rays for whatever reason.
Right now I'm trading in the US only.

I love to read and have a huge obsession with buying new books. Hopefully, I will be able to channel that obsession and set some books free instead of stuffing my shelves to bursting.

I will consider trades if my financial situation and everything else is right for me. Feel free to PM me to check if you are interested in anything. Please see above for my trading policy! Right now, almost everything I have is "To Be Read", and my goal is to wild release them when I'm finished. Mostly I don't list my PC books unless a TBR turns into a PC.

I love all kinds of books: fiction, biography, history. Right now I'm interested in the King Arthur legends and have several in my TBR pile. I also like mysteries (Lawrence Block, Robert Parker, Diane Mott Davidson), thrillers (Patricia Cornwell), Maeve Binchy, children's books (mostly from my own childhood like Little House, but some new stuff like Despereaux Tilling, etc)short stories, poetry... I buy anything at Half Price Books or the clearance racks at B&N that catch my eye and just look like they might be good. If I am sitting still I MUST have something to read!

I don't use the 1-10 rating scale. If a book has a number there, it's from other journalers. If you'd like to know what I think, check my journal entry!

We ought to hear at least one little song every day, read a good poem, see a first rate painting, and if possible speak a few sensible words.
