Visit my book blog at" TARGET="_BLANK">A Life In Books to see more about me, my Amazon wishlist, some of my favorite reading/writing-related sites, and what I've been reading lately.

My BC bookshelf doesn't really reflect my reading tastes, as many of the books were bought specifically for BookCrossing and I haven't even read them. To get a better idea of what I like to read, see my wishlist below or check out my blog, which also has a link to my permanent library collection.

Also, in case you're curious, the 'released in the wild' figure indicates only those books that I have released into the wild. All controlled releases such as trades, RABCKs, rings, etc. are simply journalled and set to traveling.

A Rough Guide to My Book Ratings:
10: Excellent. This book has impacted me deeply, or has simply been a pure delight to read.
9: Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10.
8: Good, solid book that I would recommend to others.
7: Good book, but it didn't grab me in a big way.
6: Decent, but not my type of book.
5: Maybe somebody else would like this. I didn't.
4: Only OK. Barely worth reading. The line between taking it and leaving it is very thin.
2-3: Has major problems. I don't recommend it.
1: It's hard to imagine anyone liking this book." style="float: left" height="4" hspace="0" />" style="float: right" height="4" hspace="0" />
