As evidenced by the stacks of books in every room in my home that are literally toppling over, and the fact that I spend money I don't have on books, I'll admit it; I'm a book addict. Book Crossing feeds my habit in a healthier way, because most times I'm trading with other members and the only cost is postage.

I am more than happy to trade with anyone willing; just email me if you're interested in anything on my "available" or "to be read" shelf. If you see something on my "to be read" shelf, I'll move it to the top of my reading list, or just give it to you if I've had it for awhile.

I love most anything. My passion for different genres changes depending on my mood, but I always come back to fiction and poetry. I also have a recent love for fantasy and science fiction. Being a middle school teacher for the past two years has also given me an excuse to explore the whole young adult scene and I've thoroughly enjoyed this foray. Here's my current FAVORITES LIST and my WISH LIST. (though both of these change often)
