πŸ“š πŸ’– Have a GREAT DAY, and...HAPPY BOOKCROSSING!!! πŸ’–πŸ˜Š

"THINGS" are not important to me...and you truly can NOT judge a book by its cover!!! ; )

My 2019 Bookcrossing goal is to get back to the BC Basics of Reading and Releasing Books, so I'm going to backtrack & take time to identify which of all of the FABulous books I already HAVE to read in Mt. TBR are from other BCers, then...I'll reorganize, & get back to enJOYing READing, beginning with those books I HAVE received from my fellow BCers...THANK YOU ALL!!!πŸ’–XO

"Books to the ceiling
Books to the sky.
My piles of books
Are a mile high.
How I love them!
How I need them!
I'll have a long beard
By the time I read them."

Arnold Lobel


"Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens ..."

Carlos Ruiz Zafon


"Every farmer, every laborer, every fisherman can both read and write β€” and we think that books instead of being locked up in cupboards, far from the sight of students, should be distributed as widely as possible. The books of our library are therefore passed from hand to hand without returning to the library shelves perhaps for years."

Jules Verne


"Bea says that the art of reading is slowly dying, that it's an intimate ritual, that a book is a mirror that offers us only what we already carry inside us, that when we read, we do it with all our heart and mind, and great readers are becoming more scarce by the day."

Carlos Ruiz Zafon


"What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet or excite you. Books help us understand who we are and how we are to behave. They show us what community and friendship mean; they show us how to live and die."

Anne Lamott

You have not only found yourself a good book, but a whole community of booklovers dedicated to sharing books with each other and the world at large. I hope you'll stick around a bit and get to know BOOKCROSSING Maybe you'll even decide to make a journal entry on this book, possibly listing the one who referred you. We want to make the whole world a library! You may choose to remain anonymous or to join (it's free!). Feel free to read and keep this book, or to pass it on to a friend, or even set it free "in the wild" for someone else to find as you did. If you do choose to join and journal, then you can watch the book as it travels - you'll be alerted by email each time someone makes another journal entry. It's all confidential (you're known only by your screen name and no one is ever given your email address), it's fun, it's free, and it's spam-free...all thanks to our dedicated totally AWESOME BOOKCROSSING MANAGEMENT , and SUPPORT TEAMS!!! : D

OH, and don't can even register and release your own books by ordering special Bookplate (Label) designs from the BookCrossing Supply Store, and/ can print your own to get started right away by downloading some free ones from one of the two links here until your order arrives. Scroll down to "Free Downloadable Label Files" on this page to print on self adhesive labels you purchase , or open this PDF File to print on plain paper and use a glue stick or tape.



THANK YOU for visiting my BookShelf Page...which is ALLways...A WORK IN PROGRESS!!! : )

I LOVE Bookcrossing, Wild Releasing, & Wishlist Granting, so NOT ALL of the books listed in the "All Books/To Be Read/Available/Reserved/Traveling" categories on my Bookshelf reflect my personal taste in reading. While I may not necessarily read certain books sent to me, I very much appreciate them, & always Journal them, & Keep Them Moving!!! ; )

I LOVE reading CHILDREN'S BOOKS before I Release or RABCK them!!! ; ) I also love Gardening, Sewing, Cooking, Baking, Canning, Crocheting, Coloring, Drawing, Writing, and Arts and Crafts.

Except for an occasional Action or Historical Romance Novel...I have NO desire to read Romance Novels, and yet it's a Historical Romance Novel that first introduced me to BOOKCROSSING!!! : ) Click here

Due to health reasons...I am NO LONGER able to read the Mystery/Thriller/Suspense/Crime Drama genres I use to so enjoy, and I NEVer cared for Horror or Sci-Fi, all of which are generally Wild Released into the BookCrossing "World Library" by my participation in various Bookcrossing Release Challenges...or sent to someone to grant a WISH, or as a RABCK!!! ; )

My only WISH LIST...

PEACE ON EARTH ...and to be able to continue to do my part to help Bookcrossing MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD A LIBRARY!!!

Toward that goal...I am always in need of Postage for RABCKs and BC Bookplates/Bags, etc., which in turn...helps keep the site alive and well. ; )

Many thanks to ALL of you for your generosity and RABCKs!!! : D
