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.
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 Feb 7, 2018 I have read 8 books this year. I read 67 in 2017, 60 in 2016, 52 in 2015, 49 in 2014, 55 in 2013, 68 in 2012, 54 in 2011, 44 in 2010, 78 in 2009, 74 in 2008, 99 in 2007, 65 in 2006, 95 in 2005, and 77 in 2004. For those interested, the lists for each year can be found on my Goodreads profile.
Personal challenge:I've mailed a book to every one of the US states and am now working on personally wild releasing one in each state as well. I've done 37 so far: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Delaware, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma,Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming. I've also released in Washington D.C. and two other countries: Mexico and Canada!
