I registered my 1000th book on January 22, 2009!

I love quilting, reading, and spending time online. I have a lot of books and many that I'd like to release so I can make room for more. Some of the books I've marked TBR are ones that I've read before but want to read again so I can decide whether to keep them or let them go. I used to keep every book I acquired, but I really don't have room to do that. Plus I love the concept of Bookcrossing.

My bookshelf does not necessarily reflect my personal taste. Many of these books are ones that I have read and enjoyed. There are some that I've received in bulk purchases that are not to my taste and/or I haven't read for various reasons. I also have a boatload of romances from many years ago that I'm slowly reviewing and releasing. I'm not that fond of nonfiction. I do read a wide variety though!

Note for those interested in trading: Unfortunately postage continues to rise and though I've gone back to work, money is pretty tight. Though I might be open to trades with people located in the United States, trading internationally is usually beyond my means. If this changes in the future, I'll note it here. So sorry! :-(

I've been steadily adding to my wish list and my address is current and available at I know my wishlist is long, but these are all books I hope to read someday... I don't expect to get them, by any means! Official Bookcrossing bookplates, release baggies, and mailing envelopes are always welcome!
