*** Update 21-12-2010 : Sibling moving in = books moving out. Will be registering the ones that are leaving home in the hope of someday hearing what happened to them. ***

A bit about me:
I love love love stories which inevitably means I love books, movies and tv series. I have a very sweet and lively dog who keeps me company, drags me out of the house every day, gives me lots of love and loyalty and keeps me entertained with her silly antics. When I am not reading or watching something, I enjoy filling my spare time by working with fabrics and yarns. I like to buy scraps and leftovers of fabric to try and make into something new and to repurpose old curtains and clothes etc. My dream is to one day have a job or a small business that allows me to work from home, have as "green" a home as possible, a bathroom with an actual bathtub (no woman should be made to do without)... and to have a garden large enough to grow my own fruit and veg (or at least part of it) as well as accomodate chickens, bees and plenty of wildlife.

Why I signed up:
I have always been a bookworm, I love new stories of just about all kinds. I mostly prefer fiction but I'm also interested in different types of non-fiction. There are very few books in the world I wouldn't want to read at least once.
Due to having a hunger for books that exceeds the bounds of my bookbudget as well as having the shelves in my bookcases struggling to keep from giving way because of the overcrowded state they have to put up with BookCrossing seems like the ideal place to help find a new home for my books without regretting their departure too much.
I hope that I can make some people happy with the books I have to share and I look forward to getting to know fellow booklovers!

My bookshelf:
Should you see a book on my shelf you'd like to read and it is a book currently in my possession: trade requests are welcome! However, if something is marked Private Collection then it means it is a book I really really love so I am willing to lend it only on the condition that it is not mistreated in any way and ofcourse returned to me.
I won't be joining any bookrings or rays for now because I currently can't send them on in time.

My shipping preferences:
I prefer shipping within Europe due to budgetary constraints but on occassion I may be able to ship internationally so please check with me first.
As for receiving... I am registered on rabck.com and it's all up to date.

You're Jane Eyre!

by Charlotte Bronte

Epic in scope and vision, you like looking at your own complete
history. That said, your complete history is pretty much crazy. You seem to be
followed by suitors, craziness, fires, and incredible turns of both good and bad
fortune. Through it all, you persevere while maintaining adherence to your own
somewhat middle-ground moral code. While you have confidence that everything will
work out in the end, you sometimes wonder if it's worth it along the way. Oh sweet
sweet Jane.
