PLEASE NOTE: While I will always consider a trade, I find requests for books without offer of trade or postage extremely rude and, therefore, will ignore them.
ALSO NOTE: While my wishlist is up to date, my available books are a little scattered about between my current home, a storage unit, and the trunk of my car. I try to keep that list current, but if I tell you to have a look at it and then can't find the book you want, please forgive me!
My bookshelf is in no way a reflection of my taste in books. In fact, though a great number of books on my shelf are mystery/thrillers and romances, those are genres I very rarely (or in the case of romances -- never) read.
Mine is a animal-friendly home, so any books of mine may be lightly dusted with cat or dog hairs.
As of July 1, 2019 I have read 32 books this year.
