Central Coast Mom with Eclectic Lifestyle and Reading Interests...
I love Unsolved True Crimes, Mysteries, Thrillers, SciFiFantasy is my new passion! DragonRiders of Pern is a series I collect! As well as Firefly/Serenity books.

Favorite Authors: Agatha Christie, A. Conan Doyle, Terry Brooks, Anne McCaffrey, Margaret Weis, Barbara Hodges, Melanie Rawn... E. A. Poe, Stephen King... Anything about Jack the Ripper... or Lucrezia Borgia... or Lizzy Borden - etc.

Have loved reading since I was little, but after marriage and children I didn't seem to have as much time as I would've liked to read. Joined several Bookclubs and collected quite a few boxes full of books (that always made the movers happy! More money per box!) But after moving to the Central coast of California I sorted through the boxes and sold the overflow to the local used book stores for credit towards ones I wanted to read... Or that my kids needed for school.
Then after my Daughter ("Oregongal" bookcrosser) moved to Oregon to go to college, she came for a visit and 'dropped' off a book at the local Starbucks. Told me about Bookcrossing and after visiting the site I found a new love of reading and trading books!
Wish I had found this place before I got rid of all those books! Ah, but hindsight...
I have enjoyed the books I have received from the fellow bookcrossers and have sent a few. Wish I had more to send. Please check out my available books... I'd love to send them out!

I posted in reply to a challenge for Agatha Christie books (during the anniversary week of her first book) that I had 4 books I was willing to send out. Since then I have sent one to Legbamel (it had 3 stories in it) and I have sent one with 4 novel/stories and Elephants Can Remember to Meeko14 for her sister Ladybuggy.

If there is a book you have a 'wish for', I would be willing to search for them at our local used book stores... let me know!

I've been doing a search on (many thanks to Cliff for the wonderful site and wish lists!) for people who are 'wishing for' books that I have... amazingly I found many and sent out PMs to those with wishes on the list the longest. I'll continue to contact anyone with a 'wish' for any book I have till I get them all sent out!
