As with everybody else on this site, books and reading are a great love of mine. A day without reading, even if only for a few minutes, feels somehow incomplete. I like contemporary fiction, but am also willing to take on anything else that looks interesting. The best kind of novel is the one which I am thinking about for days, even months, afterwards. I'm always looking for books like this, and just sometimes, I find them.

It's still my aim to read as much and as widely as possible, tackle Mt TBR and generally slim down my book collection! Releasing them, particularly to other bookcrossers who want to read them would be the best outcome, and I'll be happy to send them on their way as either trades or RABCKs if you ask nicely, so please feel free to ask.

2) Uphill All The Way - Sue Moorcroft (Bookring)
3) Affinity - Sarah Waters
4) The Life And Times Of The Thunderbolt Kid - Bill Bryson

6) Rape, A Love Story - Joyce Carol Oates (Bookring)
