March 2010 - long time, no book-cross! Sorry to anyone I've promised a book to, and haven't got round to it yet. I'm in the process of changing location - house, job and everything, so all books appear to be in boxes ready to be shipped somewhere soon. I'm sure I will be back in the swing of things soon, so thanks for your patience.

My friends list... includes people I have met in person, people who I've traded with, people I have RABCK'd or they've RABCK'd me, and just generally people who make the whole Bookcrossing experience worthwhile.

Found a book in a charity shop with a Bookcrossing label in and have been a member ever since!" target="_top">Free Web Site Counters" target="_top">Free Web Site Counters

Sent it as a gift, that's what you say. You are a daily visitor of the rback site. Releasing might be fun, but now I know for sure my book finds someone who actually wants it.
