I have become an author!
My first book, The Lives Around Us: Daily Meditations for Nature Connection came out on 24th June 2016. You can find me on Facebook and Twitter. Click on the title above to go to the publisher's website.
I first heard about BookCrossing on Radio 4. I have also lost books in public places (so if you picked up The Hunt for Red October in Italy, it's mine) and found them (so if you left Catch 22 under a bench at Harrow on the Hill and want it back, let me know!) but the idea of doing it deliberately really appeals. Who knows where these old, well-thumbed friends may turn up? And wouldn't it be great if one day, perhaps when you are old and grey, you picked up your own book, decades after "releasing" it....

My wishlist has become very long. Here are the top books I'm after:
Cameron, Julia, The Artist's Way : A Course in Discovering and Recovering Your Creative Self
Klein, Naomi (2014) This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate
Marshall, George (2014) Don't Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change
