๐Ÿ“š In my humble opinion, truer words than those in the excerpt below from ๐Ÿ“™ "The Shadow of the Wind" (a GREAT READ!!!๐Ÿ˜Š) were ever written, which speak perfectly to the infinite volumes shared daily as a part of our "World Library" Community of 1,942,368 BookCrossing BookCrossers aka BCers, and counting...come join us!!!๐Ÿค—

..."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


BLESSINGS, and MANY THANKS TO ALL OF YOU for your kindnesses, generosity, HGG and/or Birthday Exchange Surprises, RABCKs, & WINGS!!!๐Ÿ™Your THOUGHTFULLNESS brings tears to my eyes, and JOY to my heart, and you are ALL...OFTEN THOUGHT OF and MENTIONED in my PRAYERS and BLESSINGS, and...ALWAYS, GREATLY APRRECIATED!!!๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’–โŒโญ•

๐Ÿ’– Take Care, Stay Safe, Have a GREAT DAY, and...HAPPY BOOKCROSSING!!! ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜Š

๐Ÿ“š Bookcrossing the words of our founder, Ron Hornbaker:

"You've come to a friendly place, and we welcome you to our book-lovers' community. Our members love books enough to let them goโ€”into the wildโ€”to be found by others. Book sharing has never been more exciting, more serendipitous, than with BookCrossing. Our goal, simply, is to make the whole world a library. BookCrossing is a book exchange of infinite proportion, the first and only of its kind."

๐Ÿ“š My BookCrossing Wishlist is current as of the "Last Update" noted below, although the few books listed there are simply so that I may remember them, and are otherwise inconsequential.๐Ÿ˜‰ With the cost of material goods, shipping, handling, postage, etc., during our current 2022 World situation when so many are hurting, in need, and often trying to survive without basic necessities, I would never want someone to take on the burden of actually trying to fulfill such trivial a wish as a book, which pales in comparison considerably to helping someone in need.๐Ÿ™

๐Ÿ‘‰ If you are wishing to send me a surprise of some sort...FIRST and FOREMOST...โคTHANK YOUโค for thinking of me, I really appreciate your thoughtfulness!!!๐Ÿค— I do participate in our fellow BCer Diane-Fraser's RABCK Address Contact Thread, so you can PM our fellow BCer tigergirlnz for my address information...THANK YOU BOTH!!! ๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿค— I hold addresses for both tigergirlnz and Chicvolley99. If you'd like to join's the link to the thread in the RABCK Forum:

๐Ÿ‘‰ SECONDLY...I am an extremely eclectic being, notorious for simultaneously reading many books, of many genres... NOT Romance... & NOT blood/gore/guts/horror/thriller related... based on my current responsibilities at hand, my mood, and/or current mental/Spiritual/emotional needs at the moment, so not all of the books ๐Ÿ“š on my Bookshelf reflect my likes or dislikes, as a great many of them have been received as RABCKs from others, and/or were selected for WILD RELEASE/RABCKing purposes...IโคLOVE surprises alMOST as much as IโคLOVE surprising others.๐Ÿ˜Š By the way...did YOU KNOW...that using ALL CAPS...does NOT necessarily mean that some one is yelling at youโ‰ Sometimes it is used as an exPRESSion of exCItment, JOY, or even TOnal inFLECtionโ—โ—โ—๐Ÿ˜Just sayin'...


Last Update...Friday, 13 May 2022, 5:44 PM...Arizona time!!!๐Ÿ˜Š
