Oh dear oh dear, I can't remember whom I sent THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES to, please send me another message so that I can answer!

My first bookring took place in 2005. Thanks Spiderchic :-)
I also took part in a Tiara Sweepstakes (a bookcrosser wins by surprise a massive number of books!)
In 2007, thanks to chich and to retromonkey, I took part in the Birthday RABCK
