*****Please note: If books say "available" on my shelf then it is perfectly ok to PM me and ask me to send it to you. It would be my pleasure.*****

Ok, it is so very far past time to update this profile. My last profile talked about my moving to Oregon after a lifetime in California. One of the first things I did after I got settled in Oregon was to look up active bookcrossers in the area. In early 2006 I found a group of bookcrossers that met monthly to talk about what they were reading and share books with each other. I attended my first meeting in March of 2006.

To "cut to the chase" I met someone at this meeting who I fell in love with. So...my life changed again. We moved in together in October.

All this is to say that I believe that bookcrossing is the best thing on the planet!

(Oh yes...And to those of you who don't know me well the picture on my shelf is my beloved cat Andie who is very happy with her new digs in Tualatin.)

Update: How time flies. We have now purchased a home in Hillsboro, OR where Andie is again enjoying all three levels of her new place.
